2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Fuel Economy Update for July
August 6, 2014
In the month of July, our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe added nearly 1,500 miles to its odometer while consuming a tick more than 108 gallons of 91-octane swill. All up, it registered 13.4 miles per gallon for the month.
This result is woefully short of its EPA combined rating of 18 mpg, but perhaps not surprising given how satisfying it is to dip deep into the travel of the Jag's right pedal. We did manage one fill that surpassed its EPA highway rating. But not many on staff possess that level of self-restraint.
Worst Fill MPG: 8.9 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 23.7 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 13.4 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 18 Combined (16 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 200.6 miles
Current Odometer: 5458 miles
Note: Cars are sometimes refueled before their fuel tanks are nearly empty. As such, "best" and "worst" fuel economy entries above are not necessarily the result of an entire tank's worth of driving.
