2015 Lexus RC F: Fuel Economy Update For April

May 8, 2015

2015 Lexus RC F

April was a quiet month for our 2015 Lexus RC F. We didn't go on any road trips or rip it up at a high-performance driving event. Instead, the RC F stayed close to our Santa Monica corporate office, filling in for commuting and date nights. As a result, we added only about 1,300 miles. Fuel economy did rise for the month, though.

For April, we averaged 18.9 mpg. That's better than our lifetime average, which has increased from 17.2 in March to 17.6 mpg last month. It seems like the RC F returned dismal fuel economy in its first couple of months with us, but there's been a noticeable uptick in the last 2,700 miles of driving.

If this keeps up, we just might align our lifetime average with the EPA estimate of 19 mpg combined. Or we could just start driving it harder.

Worst Fill MPG: 9.2
Best Fill MPG: 25.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 17.6
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (16 City/25 Highway Combined)
Best Range: 306.8 miles
Current Odometer: 8,672 miles
