2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet: Fuel Economy Update for August

September 4, 2013

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

Our 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is running just below the EPA expectations for combined city/highway driving.

I've been driving it for the past few days and I can tell you I've been cranking the A/C in our 911 because of the late summer heat wave we've been having.

But I'm sure our fuel economy figures have more to do with how fun this car is to drive.

In August we added about 1,900 miles to its odometer, using 71 gallons of 91-octane fuel.

Worst Fill MPG: 12.4
Best Fill MPG: 31.4
Average Lifetime MPG: 21.6
EPA MPG Rating: 23 Combined (20 City / 28 highway)
Best Range: 511.8 miles
Current Odometer: 16,849 miles

    OK Can't decipher the initials (Mike?) but that editor topped it off with 3.636 gal on 8/16--wierd.

    @noburgers: Maybe a courtesy fill up? That way when the next editor or writer checks the car out it is full...

    Numbers don't add up at all...jumps from 15,258 to 16,327 in one fillup? >1,900 miles over 71 gallons of gas is 27MPG, which is hard to believe. Looks to me like 900 miles of fuel is missing, which brings the MPG way lower...
