LOL, 4lbs lighter than a BRZ Premium.

2,758 vs. 2,762

So much for that advantage that everyone was boasting about.

Please leave the FRS vs BRZ nonsense out of this thread. Some like the Scion. Some prefer the Toyota, and some prefer the BRZ. They are entitled to like what they like. Move on with your lives.

Why is the 5th gear 1:1? Damn you Toyota. I dislike having to use premium on a car that will be my DD and I've resigned myself to that fact. Now the MT gets poorer MPG than the AT version because different ratios were chosen. WTF

The compression ratio and the Boxer motor itself are the reasoning. You get used to it. I've been stuck with Premium for the past 6 1/2 years with my WRX. You just only focus on the big number at the station, and ignore the little ones.

My WRX is a 2.0 with a turbo and gets 217HP and I get an average of 21 to 22. HWY is definitely higher, but only at the average for the FRS at best. It makes sense since the Boxer is not fuel efficient in any way when you want any sort of performance from it.

someone correct me if im wrong but isnt that turning circle radius of 17.7' (35.4' turning circle) is a little big on paper? That's the same as an S2000 and almost 5' bigger than the MX5. My current drive has 38 turning circle and I hate it and I remembered the FRS hugging the turn very well during my test drive in Long Beach so I was expecting something smaller.
