2013 Scion FR-S: Fuel Economy Update for April
May 2, 2013
We put 1,212 miles on our long-term 2013 Scion FR-S during the month of April. That's a low total for us, and someone will simply have to take this car on another road trip before this long-term test is over.
The FR-S averaged 25.3 mpg over this stretch (taking 47.9 gallons of 91 octane fuel), which is higher than our lifetime average of 24.3 mpg. Twenty-five just happens to be the EPA's combined fuel economy rating on the manual-shift FR-S.
Our best tank (28.7 mpg) of the month was logged by yours truly, but that pales in comparison to the car's lifetime best of 30.0 mpg. Our worst tank of the month came in at 18.7 mpg, but we've done worse (16.7) in previous months, and of course, we're excluding any fill-ups that occurred immediately after instrumented testing or track days.
