2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Fuel Economy Update for October
November 6, 2014
Our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe covered a solid 1,325 miles for the month of October. A few lead-footed Edmunds editors caused the F-Type's lifetime fuel economy to drop by nearly 9 percent. Can't say I blame them though. This car begs you to drive it hard and that doesn't do its fuel economy any favors.
We can't blame Travis and his track day for the drop in fuel economy, either. All that stuff happened in September, when he reported a lifetime mpg of 16.1. After eight fill-ups in October, the lifetime average dropped to 14.7 mpg. Having three fill-ups in the high 11 mpg range will definitely wear away at the lifetime numbers.
This puts us at roughly 3.3 mpg or 18 percent below the EPA's combined number. Time will tell if we can bring the lifetime average back up, but I won't hold my breath for it.
