2017 Fuel Economy Update - 2016 Mini Cooper S Electric Blue Metallic (Post #11)

It's a new year, new beginnings.  I wanted to post more detail about the Mini along with persistent fuel economy updates; however, my work schedule just does not allow me the time to detail what I want.

So, my promise is to provide monthly fuel economy updates so everyone can at least see the Mini's fuel forecast and cost of overall ownership.  This will at least provide detail for those looking to purchase one based upon fuel economy and associated maintenance costs of daily ownership.

I traveled some in February for work, so my fuel requirements were reduced as a result; however, cost of ownership per day increased slightly due to a blown left front tire I had to replace after hitting a very large pothole in the early morning drive to work.

The pothole was so large it caused several accidents later that week which resulted in emergency road repair.

I'll post my graphs and answer questions anyone has based on what they are seeing.  I find this to be the best approach based on each individuals assessment of the data I'm posting.

The first two graphs are lifetime trends from the day the car was purchased.  The next two are for the 2017 reporting year, and the last graph is also based on ownership from the day the car was purchased.

Until the next fuel update... Motor On!!
