2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Fuel Economy Update for April — Nearly 300 Miles on Single Tank
May 12, 2015
We skipped our 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe fuel economy update last month, so we'll make up for lost time here. We've put approximately 2,250 miles on the Jag in the last two months and during that time it went in for routine maintenance and tire repair.
Our lifetime MPG, and best and worst fills remain the same, but we did manage to slightly increase our best range.
Dan Edmunds squeezed 297.8 miles out of a tank for a calculated mpg of 16.8 (Jaguar specs our coupe to achieve 296 miles in the city and 425.5 on the highway). Dan ran the tank down pretty good too, filling the 18.5-gallon capacity tank with 17.70 gallons of 91 octane.
Personally, I don't think I could ever achieve those kinds of numbers. I just spent a few days with my favorite long termer and turned in single-digit mpg results. What can I say? This car brings out my wasteful side, though my colleagues will argue that I don't have a frugal side.
Worst Fill MPG: 8.9
Best Fill MPG: 29.9
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.0
EPA MPG Rating: 18 Combined (16 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 297.8
Current Odometer: 18,880
