2015 Lexus RC F: Fuel Economy Update for January
February 6, 2015
Our long-term 2015 Lexus RC F has only been in the fleet for a few weeks but it's already on track to hit its mileage goal. We've put about 1,800 miles on the odometer over the last few weeks (it arrived to us as a tester with 3,120 on the clock) and that's definitely enough for us to start tracking its fuel economy. At this rate, we'll definitely hit 10,000 miles of testing by the time six months rolls around.
Over the four weeks, it would seem we've done more driving with the use-the-big-V8-to-turn-gasoline-into-loud-noises tactic, rather than the see-if-we-can-hit-25-mpg-in-a-V8-sports-car strategy. Maybe things will get better once the RC F goes on a couple of road trips.
Here's how the numbers shake out.
Worst Fill MPG: 15.6
Best Fill MPG: 19.4
Average Lifetime MPG: 17.1
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (16 City / 25 Highway)
Best Range: 253 miles
Current Odometer: 5,000 miles
