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.

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?

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.

2013 Scion FR-S

For the month of January, we only filled our 2013 Scion FR-S twice but in December because editor JayKav took the car up on a road trip to Laguna Seca and then to Oregon it logged a lot of highway miles. In case you were curious, it got 11.2 and 12.2 mpg during the track days.

On the Oregon roadtrip, the best mpg he got was 30 mpg and the trip to and from Oregon averaged 28.2 mpg.

For January, the FR-S was driven for 560.9 miles and drank 23.2 gallons of 91 octane fuel, averaging 24.2 mpg, a bit shy of the EPA's combined 25 mpg.
