2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: Roadtrip Fuel Economy

November 03, 2011

Last week's 1000-mile round trip to Infineon Raceway in our longterm 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was sort of a reprise. I'd driven a similar route in the same Outlander during the summer months, so I was curious to compare the fuel economy of both 1000-mile trips.

August roadtrip: 23.2 mpg

October roadtrip: 21.7 mpg

One caveat that makes this not quite an apples to apples comparison -- my cruising speed was very roughly 3-5 mph higher during the October trip, and that appears to have more than offset any fuel economy benefit the notably cooler ambient temperature provided. You gotta pay to play...
