2018 might have just started, but now is the perfect time to start planning this year’s adventures. One of the most popular travel destinations here in the United States is Yellowstone National Park, and we recommend exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site at least once in your lifetime. Most visitors prefer to drive from their home state to Yellowstone, and depending on what type of vehicle they have, costs can really add up. Luckily, the 2018 Kia Sportage offers the perfect amount of efficiency that will help you enjoy affordable adventuring.

Amount of Gas and Money Needed to Drive the 2018 Kia Sportage from Scranton to Yellowstone National Park

There are two ways to get from Scranton to Yellowstone National Park: via I-80 and I-94 (takes you through Wisconsin, central Minnesota, and North Dakota), which is 2,126 miles – or via I-80 and I-90 (takes you through Iowa, southern Minnesota, and South Dakota), which is 2,114 miles. The distances are not too different and you can’t go wrong with either route.

No matter which route you choose, you will need approximately 4.5 (with 2.4L engine) to 5 (with 2.0L engine) tanks of fuel to reach Yellowstone National Park with the 2018 Kia Sportage. If gas is $3 per gallon, you can expect to pay $221.40 to $246.00 for a one-way journey.

Please note that estimates were made using full tanks of fuel. We do not recommend operating your 2018 Kia Sportage with less than a quarter-tank of fuel. Your actual fuel economy and driving range may vary due to a variety of factors – including the upkeep of your 2018 Kia Sportage, your driving style, the addition of all-wheel drive, and trekking up steep elevations.
