Since our previous update a month ago,’s long-term 2013 Subaru BRZ tester accumulated nearly 1,100 miles. The BRZ is rotated among our editors who use the BRZ as a daily driver for commuting, running errands and taking road trips as if it were their own car. One editor took the sports car from Chicago to the Quad Cities on a 300-plus-mile road trip, accounting for a third of the miles racked up in the past 28 days.

The BRZ continues to bulls-eye its combined rating of 25 mpg. Our manual-transmission BRZ has EPA ratings of 22/30 mpg city/highway. We’ve observed 25.58 mpg after 11 fill-ups so far, with many more to come in its yearlong evaluation.
