2013 Subaru BRZ Long-Term Road Test


2013 Subaru BRZ: Fuel Economy Update for June

July 3, 2013

2013 Subaru BRZ

We put 1,296 miles on our 2013 Subaru BRZ during the month of June. That's a low total for us, especially considering our 12-month long-term test ends in late July. We'll simply have to take it on a road trip to plump up its mileage. Of course, I've already volunteered. I'm driving it to Moab, the place in Utah, next week.

In the meantime, let's talk about mpg, as the BRZ continues to impress in this area.

The BRZ averaged 26.6 mpg during June (taking 48.8 gallons of 91-octane fuel). That's consistent with our lifetime average of 26.5 mpg. And it exceeds the EPA's 25 mpg combined fuel economy rating for the manual-shift BRZ.

Our best tank of the month was 28 mpg even, which doesn't even approach our lifetime best of 32.5 mpg. Our worst tank of the month came in at 23.4 mpg, but we've done worse (18.6 mpg), and of course, we're excluding any fill-ups that occurred immediately after instrumented testing.
