Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Fuel Economy Update for May - Many Miles, Many MPG Lulz
June 12, 2015
May was a big month for our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. Thanks to road trips by Mike Schmidt, Mike Magrath and Cameron Rogers, we added another 2,584 miles. In the process, our overall average nudged just a bit higher and Schmidt obliterated the previous range on a single tank.
He somehow squeezed 408.2 miles out of a single tank on his Arizona road trip. That's 110.4 miles further than anyone's managed. This is in stark contrast to two fuel log entries that list single-digit mpg numbers with the initials "MT" scrawled next to them. Funny, I don't remember having Marlo Thomas or Mike Tyson visit as guest editors. Oh look, a squirrel!
In order to hit our 20,000-mile target before the car goes back to Jaguar, we'll need another banner month like May (the car came to us with almost 4,000 miles on the clock). It'll be a sad day in the office when we surrender the keys, but perhaps we'll give it a proper road trip send-off.
