2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Fuel Economy Update for August
September 10, 2014
August was a good month for fuel economy in our 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. It turned in improved numbers across the board and one of its most efficient overall tanks so far.
Unfortunately, good mileage in this 550-horsepower beast is a relative term.
Its overall number jumped from a lowly 13.4 mpg to a still thirsty 14.4 mpg. A big jump for sure, but still well short of its EPA rating of 18 mpg in combined driving.
Turns out, when you have this much power in a car this capable, it's pretty hard to go easy on it. Credit for the overall jump goes to some longer trips when cruise control was utilized to keep the big V8 in check.
We'll see if the overall number continues to climb in the month ahead.
Don't bet on it.
