2017 End Of Year Fuel Economy Summary - 2016 Mini Cooper S Electric Blue Metallic (Post #14)

Happy New Year Everyone!!

2017 is now in the history books, and the fuel economy numbers are finalized!

You can look at this data in several different ways, so my summary is based on my interpretation.
I also have to consider outlier data points like the month of November where we drove to Kentucky and back - and you can see that in the graphs below.

But all things considered, the data is relatively flat, and it shows.  95% of my driving is to and from work, so I would expect that. Everything in my opinion is in the ballpark, and other than the trip to Kentucky, there are really no epiphanies or correlations to call a lot of attention to.  The 2016 Mini Cooper S is performing as I would have expected; albeit with a slightly lower average MPG than I would have hoped for.  It gets nearly 40 MPG on the highway which is fantastic, I was just expecting my weekly average to match that more than it does considering my travel to and from work is primarily highway as well.  Just goes to show you how much city travel impacts overall fuel economy.

Some highlights: September was clearly the most expensive month in terms of PPG, and that was based solely on traditional driving. So this is a new trend I will be keeping an eye on going forward.  Last year the most expensive month was June.  You can see the 2016 Year End Summary by clicking this line.

And as I did for 2016, I included my raw data for all of 2017.
