2015 Porsche Macan: Fuel Economy Update for August
September 12, 2014
We've finished up the second month in our 2015 Porsche Macan S and I've run the numbers to get August's fuel economy details.
During that time we added more than 2,500 miles. It's also possible that some of our drivers were thinking of Goose and Maverick from Top Gun: "I feel the need, the need for speed!"
The good news is that we did a lot better than last month's dismal 13.8 mpg average. In fact, we got our best tank of gas yet in August: 19.7 mpg.
The bad news (from an efficiency standpoint) is that this is little better than the EPA's combined fuel economy estimate of 19 mpg.
Our most gas-intensive driving during the month left us with 14.8 mpg from a tank. With everything averaged out, we posted 17.4 mpg for the month.
For a fun-to-drive vehicle like the Macan, though, I suppose this is largely expected.
Worst Fill MPG: 11.2
Best Fill MPG: 19.7
Average Lifetime MPG: 16.0
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (17 City/23 Highway Combined)
Best Range: 310 miles
Current Odometer: 4,571 miles
