2013 Scion FR-S: Fuel Economy Update for March

April 2, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

Our Scion FR-S had light duty for the month of March, adding just over 700 miles to its odometer. No records, good or bad, were set for its fuel economy history as the Scion stayed the course, that being providing a lot of driving fun in a car that in our environment is still averaging 24.3 mpg.

That nearly matches the EPA combined figure of 25 mpg. And by "our environment" I mean one in which the car is subject to a lot of L.A. traffic and a lot of pressure from our staff's rather enthusiastic feet.

Worst Fill MPG: 16.9
Best Fill MPG: 30.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 24.3
EPA MPG Rating (City/Highway/Combined): 22/30/25
Best Range: 335.1
Current Odometer: 14,716
