2015 Porsche Macan S: Fuel Economy Update for September
October 16, 2014
Our long-term 2015 Porsche Macan S, didn't cover many miles during the month of September. Only about 1,300. But its lifetime fuel economy continues to improve.
Since we bought the Porsche Macan back in June, its lifetime average fuel economy has climbed from 13.8 mpg in July to 16.0 mpg through August to 16.4 mpg today.
Although this remains significantly below the crossover's EPA combined rating of 19 mpg, it's very close to its 17 mpg city rating, and our Macan has spent the majority of its life in L.A.'s urban sprawl. In addition, the Macan is driven often with its "Sport" mode activated, which tunes its drivetrain for more performance. And that certainly has a negative effect on its fuel economy.
Some road trips are planned, however, so those highway miles should continue to inch up the Porsche's mpg average.
Worst Fill MPG: 11.2 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 19.7 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 16.4 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (17 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 310.3 miles
Current Odometer: 6,800 miles
