2013 Lexus GS 350 Long Term Road Test

2013 Lexus GS 350: Road Trip Fuel Economy

September 7, 2012

2013 Lexus GS 350

I just completed my very first road trip in our long-term 2013 Lexus GS 350. On Wednesday I drove the car from Los Angeles to Palo Alto, CA and on Thursday I drove it back. A total trip of 727 nearly all interstate miles. 

By the way, here's a photo of the sedan parked at my Silicon Valley hotel just to prove I was there. 

Now that you believe me, I'm ready to report that the GS averaged exactly 25.0 mpg during the trip running on its required premium fuel (91 octane). The EPA rates it at 28 mpg on the highway.
