2015 Volvo S60: Fuel Economy Update for August - Combined MPG Falls Short of City Rating

by Mike Magrath, Features Editor on September 22, 2015

2015 Volvo S60

August wasn't a particularly exciting month for our 2015 Volvo S60. We drove it 787.4 miles and, by looking at the numbers, those miles weren't fuel-economy runs.

The EPA rates the S60 with its unique multi-charged engine at 28 mpg combined (24 city/35 highway), to see our August and overall results, click....

For those paying very close attention, note that neither the best nor worst fills changed, nor did best range. The only thing that moved was our average lifetime MPG which dropped from 23.6 to 23.1 mpg. But hey, during that time a plastic cover under the car fell off and we grew tired of the constant warnings of the Distance Alert.

Worst Fill MPG: 14.9 
Best Fill MPG: 30.5
Average Lifetime MPG: 23.1
EPA MPG Rating: 28 Combined (24 City/35 Highway Combined) 
Best Range: 410.5 miles 
Current Odometer: 9,005 miles
