2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Long-Term Road Test


2013 Porsche 911 Carrera: Fuel Economy Update for October

November 5, 2013

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera

We added about 1,200 miles to our 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera convertible during October. It didn't make any big road trips, so that mileage was largely racked up by our typical commuting within Southern California.

For the month, we averaged 20.9 mpg. That's close to our lifetime average since we started the test back in January.

That lifetime average currently stands at 21.2 mpg, which is a little below the EPA's 23 mpg combined average.

Worst Fill MPG: 12.4
Best Fill MPG: 31.4
Average Lifetime MPG: 21.2
EPA MPG Rating: 23 Combined (20 City/28 Highway Combined)
Best Range: 511 miles
Current Odometer: 19,288 miles

Comments

  • Isn't the EPA rating based on the use of the 93 octane that the 911 engine is designed for? Perhaps using 91 is hurting your mileage slightly.
