2013 Scion FR-S: Fuel Economy Update for December

January 6, 2014

2013 Scion FR-S

With the Innovate Motorsports supercharger stripped off, as well as the other fun bits, our 2013 Scion FR-S was a little unwanted through the month of December. I'll blame our editors' finicky obsession with power and their secret love of aftermarket exhaust for their lack of interest.

That being said, it still covered a little less than a thousand miles. Click through to see how it did in December.

While the major numbers stayed the same, the month saw us average 22.3 mpg. That's a bit below our year-long average, but I have a theory behind that difference. Sure, the supercharger used its fair share of fuel, but now that it's gone, we're having to tach the little motor out more often to make up for the loss in urgency. Whatever it is, this car is still a lot of fun.

Worst Fill MPG: 14.4
Best Fill MPG: 30.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 23.6
EPA MPG Rating: 25 Combined (22 city/30 Highway)
Best Range: 335.1
Current Odometer: 24,838 miles

    Supercharger stripped off? I guess it's time to sell the car...

    Did I miss a post saying you guys started removing the modifications? Reason? You didn't strip the Wrangler of all its mods before selling it.
