2015 Porsche Macan S: Fuel Economy Update for December

January 8, 2015

2015 Porsche Macan S

Our long-term 2015 Porsche Macan S only covered about 1,500 miles during December. And it averaged 16.9 mpg for the month.

Oh yeah, this ain't no Prius.

Since we bought the Macan back in June, its lifetime average fuel economy has climbed from 13.8 mpg in July to 16.7 mpg in November. Today that lifetime mpg remains at 16.7 mpg.

Although that performance is significantly below the crossover's EPA combined rating of 19 mpg, it's very close to its 17 mpg city rating and our Macan continues to spend the majority of its life in L.A.'s urban sprawl.

In addition, most of us drive the Porsche Macan often with its "Sport" mode activated (I know I do.), which tunes its drivetrain for more performance. And that certainly has a negative effect on its fuel economy.

Worst Fill MPG: 11.2 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 20.8 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 16.7 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (17 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 351.7 miles
Current Odometer: 11,530 miles
