2013 Scion FR-S: Fuel Economy Update for June
July 3, 2013
Our 2013 Scion FR-S's time with us is drawing to a close. That's sad news, given that this fun-loving little car has managed to put a smile on the face of pretty much everyone who's had the good fortune to take it out for a spin.
We put 2,019 miles on our FR-S during the month of June, and it consumed just over 87 gallons of 91-octane fuel. Our goal is to put at least 20,000 miles on our long-term test cars during their year with us. We're not quite there yet with our Scion, though it's been with us for a full year now.
Chalk it up to the fact that while this is an enjoyable car to drive, its compact size didn't exactly make it a practical choice when editors were planning the sort of lengthy road trips that can quickly log miles on the odometer.
