2012 Jaguar XF: Feel The Pain

July 23, 2012

jag_xf_r34_fuel.jpg I drove our longterm 2012 Jaguar XF over the weekend, no trips out of the ordinary, staying fairly local and driving in a normal manner -- no top speed runs or canyon strafings -- over a distance totaling 88.2 miles, to be exact.

So imagine my surprise when I fueled it up on Monday (as per Edmunds' usual practice) and calculated that the fuel economy associated with this driving was 11.1 mpg. Granted this is a one-fill result and not the consequence of an extended scientific study, but even if it was off by ten percent, it's still pretty dismal fuel economy. Especially considering I wasn't mashing the throttle at every opportunity. Just a few of them.

Our monthly fuel economy roundups have the Jag at a running average of 12.4 mpg. Plus,  Jordan mentioned this, uh, trait of the XF earlier too. You've been warned...
