2014 Toyota Highlander: Fuel Economy Update for April
May 8, 2014
This was the first full month in the fleet for our 2014 Toyota Highlander. It started things out with a lengthy trip to Oregon followed by a few other highway-heavy weekends.
Not surprisingly, its mileage numbers came in slightly above its official EPA ratings. Not only did it deliver a best tank of 26.5 mpg on one leg, its overall average so far is 21.3 mpg. Oh, and 431 miles on a tank isn't bad either.
Expect to see its numbers smooth out in the coming months as our Highlander spends more time sitting in traffic and carting kids around town.
Worst Fill MPG: 17.0
Best Fill MPG: 26.5
Average Lifetime MPG: 21.3
EPA MPG Rating: 21 Combined (19 City/25 Highway)
