2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: Fuel Economy Update for August

September 6, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

Thirty days and over 1,200 miles later, it's time for another fuel economy update on our 2013 Scion FR-S. Now with more lolz, courtesy of the Innovate Motorsports supercharger, our Scion is being driven harder than ever. How did the fuel economy fare/suffer?

It's getting the mileage I'd expect from an enthusiastically driven FR-S. As always, your mileage may vary.

Worst Fill MPG: 16.9
Best Fill MPG: 30.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 22.38
EPA MPG Rating: 25 Combined (22 City /30 Highway)
Best Range: 335.1
Current Odometer: 21,867 miles

    well, that didn't really answer the question, did it? Maybe in a roundabout way, I suppose it isn't great--but someone managed a 30mpg fill and that IS great. If you gave the average THIS month compared to the previous lifetime average, maybe that would help, or at least some other more meaningful comparison.

    This is just like the SLS August mpg update...people don't seem to realize that posting this update is going to entail telling us what mpg the car averaged during the month of August, and how that is higher or lower than the ongoing average, and whether it pulled that average up or down. You don't just say how far the car was driven that month and you're done. This gives us no information at all on how the S/C affected mileage, plus it was driven over 1,400 miles since the last update, not "over 1,200." I say give all these mpg updates back to Donna - she did them correctly.
