2015 Lexus RC F: Fuel Economy Update For May — City-Bound Most of the Month
June 15, 2015
May was another low-key month for our long-term 2015 Lexus RC F. We added 1,190 miles while we debated its ride quality (Brent doesn't mind, Ed says it's the tires), analyzed its manual shift mode, discovered an interior rattle, praised its audio quality and grumbled about its technology interface.
We also didn't do much better in our monthly fuel economy.
Over the course of those 1,190 miles, the RC F consumed 67.5 gallons of fuel, giving it a 17.6 mpg average for the month. That's a touch lower than March and April, and it's the likely result of the amount of time it has spent commuting in the city.
The lifetime average hasn't changed from 17.6 mpg, which we reported last month. So it's still shy of the EPA combined rating of 19 mpg. Then again, the RC F has a larger V8 that makes fun noises when you drive it hard. It's going to drink some gas in the process.
Worst Fill MPG: 9.2
Best Fill MPG: 25.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 17.6
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (16 City/25 Highway)
