2015 Volvo S60: Fuel Economy Update for July - Small Dip in Lifetime MPG
August 18, 2015
Our long-term 2015 Volvo S60 continues to stay close to its 24-mpg EPA city fuel economy rating. In July, the S60 traveled 1,331 miles and consumed 66.4 gallons of gas, meaning 20.1 mpg. This brought its lifetime average to 23.6 mpg, down a negligible 0.1 mpg versus last month.
Considering the amount of city driving we've been doing, the fuel economy shouldn't be too surprising. Also, the ample torque out of the twin-charged engine can attract longer periods of acceleration.
This month Ed Hellwig found much to like with the seats, but thought the instrument panel had too many buttons. Brent Romans still holds the best tank record at 30.5 mpg after a determined, fuel economy-minded stint.
