2013 Scion FR-S: Fuel Economy Update for June

July 3, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

Our 2013 Scion FR-S's time with us is drawing to a close. That's sad news, given that this fun-loving little car has managed to put a smile on the face of pretty much everyone who's had the good fortune to take it out for a spin.

We put 2,019 miles on our FR-S during the month of June, and it consumed just over 87 gallons of 91-octane fuel. Our goal is to put at least 20,000 miles on our long-term test cars during their year with us. We're not quite there yet with our Scion, though it's been with us for a full year now.

Chalk it up to the fact that while this is an enjoyable car to drive, its compact size didn't exactly make it a practical choice when editors were planning the sort of lengthy road trips that can quickly log miles on the odometer.

Worst Fill MPG: 16.9
Best Fill MPG: 30.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 24.0
EPA MPG Rating: 22/30/25
Best Range: 335.1 miles
Current Odometer: 19,213

  • 2 posts ago you say that you are finally going to get some forced induction. This post says the car is about to leave. Which one is it?

    And so I am again reminded of how pointless it has been for IL to have a manual FR-S AND and manual BRZ in its fleet at the same time. You were supposed to modify the FR-S and use the stock BRZ as a comparison. But all you did was a cosmetic change to the exhaust and a basically cosmetic change to the wheels and tires. IL's stupid obsession with manuals wasted a perfectly good opportunity to see how a dedicated sports car with an automatic performed in direct day-to-day comparison with a manual version of (essentially) the same car.
