2013 Scion FR-S Long-Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: Fuel Economy Update for October

November 5, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

For the month of October we covered 1,144 miles in our long-term 2013 Scion FR-S with an mpg average for the month of 22.0 using 91-octane fuel.

That's below our lifetime average of 23.6, but there was an extenuating circumstance in the name of one Markus von Takahashi.

Takahashi decided to give the new BF Goodrich G-Force Rivals a workout, so he took the car on his favorite back-road loop and averaged a new low fuel economy number of 14.4 mpg for the 54-mile route.

But then, especially with supercharger, that's what this car is all about.

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 miles
Current Odometer: 23,845 miles
