2012 Jaguar XF: Fuel Economy Update for March

April 2, 2013

2012 Jaguar XF

Our long-term 2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged didn't rack up that many miles in March. A steady diet of commuting in Southern California held it to 1,353 miles. Our 470-horsepower luxury sedan broke 20,000 miles this month, though, and it might surprise you to learn that its lifetime average exactly matches its EPA combined fuel economy rating.

That's right. The EPA rates our V8 sedan at 15 mpg in the city, 21 on the highway and 17 combined. And through 20,670 miles, the Jag is averaging 17.3 mpg. And that's rather impressive when you consider how much performance this car offers.

The Jag's average fuel economy for the month of March fell short of its lifetime average, however, no doubt due to stop-and-go traffic in greater L.A. The XF Supercharged averaged 15.6 mpg over those 1,353 miles.

Worst Fill MPG: 9.0 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 28.5 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 17.3 mpg
EPA MPG Rating (City/Highway Combined): 15/21/17
Best Range: 375.9 miles
Current Odometer: 20,670 miles

    Why did you guys stop the all-in-one fuel economy posts. Scrolling past them is nauseating, and comparing becomes impossible.

    so the Jag is not a good urban commuter, at least from MPG standpoint. go figure. I see a few of these a week love the styling and sound.

    @jpnpower I'm sure someone realized that separate posts = more ad views/clickthroughs...

    Just traded my 2012 XF for a new Jaguar XJ. It was hard parting with this car. It was a fine automobile. That V8 power and raw since of energy made it a fun car to drive. But alas, my hooligan days are over so I decided on a more staid vehicle. I think the reviews are fair, but miss the intangible qualities of owning a Jaguar. These cars have personality and still reflect their heritage, something lacking in the mass marketed/mass produced competitors.
