2005 Acura TL MPG

Yesterday, I drove one of our Acura TL cars from Central Florida where I was purchasing some more Honda and Acura pre owned inventory. Over the next few days we have some very nice Honda and Acura vehicles that will be arriving here in Nashville, TN. Included in the 9 Honda and Acura automobiles acquired yesterday there is a 2007 Acura MDX (with 5 miles on it), a 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L with Navigation and DVD (with 11,000 miles on it), and a 2005 Honda S2000 (with 37000 miles on it)

I returned in a 2005 Acura TL that has 85,000 miles on it…. I am always amazed at how well the higher mileage Acura and Honda automobiles ride and drive!!! Being ahead of my normal weekly schedule for Accurate Cars, I was not in a real hurry. My average speed was 73 MPH and cruise control was applied most of the trip.

I filled the fuel tank with gas in Central Florida and drove to exit 212 in Georgia. (approx. 412 miles). At exit 212 gasoline was a little high ($4.35 gallon for 93 octane) so I only put 8 gallons in the tank.

I then drove to Ringgold, Georgia, which is just a few miles South of Chattanooga, TN. Incidentally, as I write this post, this is the cheapest area that travelers will find fuel en route from Tennessee to Florida ($3.85 gallon for reg., up from $3.77 a week ago).

I filled the tank in Ringgold, GA. At that time, I was 541.8 miles into the 680 mile trip. The Acura TL had consumed 19.223 gallons of 93 octane fuel.

That is 28.2 MPG at an average speed of 73 MPH.
