2015 Porsche Macan: May Fuel Economy - Heavy Feet Keep Us Short of EPA Rating
June 12, 2015
In May, our 2015 Porsche Macan S improved its average mpg slightly, and now stands at 17.3 mpg. That's up marginally over April's 17.1 mpg average. The real-world Macan falls short of the official EPA rating of 19 mpg combined, however. We racked up another 2,200 miles in May and passed the 20K milestone. And you know what that means - our baby SUV is going to a new family very soon.
Also in May, the Macan had its 20K service (complete with an insanely, erroneously high initial estimate). Dan Edmunds, ever the Good Samaritan, brought it to the aid of a driver with a dead battery. And thanks to Dan, we learned where to find the Macan's posts for jumping - and where to find the battery itself.
