KM Per Tank?

How many Kilometers per tank are people getting on their Camry Hybrids? I am looking at purchasing a 2008 Camry Hybrid. I would like to know roughly how many KM everyone is getting in all the years. Thank you

Miles per tank is a little inaccurate because the low fuel light comes on with about 3-4 gallons remaining in the tank. The tank capacity is 17 gallons, but I can only fit in 13-14 gallons when I fill it up from "empty".

But with those 13-14 gallons I am getting about 450 miles. I do a lot of highway and suburban driving.

I've been getting about 550-600 miles (885-965km) per tank, from full to about 10 miles after the "driving range" hits 0.

I recently found a new route to work however which boosts my mpg by around 5. I'm at 350 miles so far and it's not even at 1/2 empty yet, so it's looking like this newest route is going to pump my tank range up over 700 miles (1125km).


Caveat: there's one 4-mile stretch of road that's 45mph speed limit, but I drive at 40mph to keep it in electric. Since it's a 2-lane road I stick to the right and let people pass me, but I mention it because it may not be something that many people are willing to do just to increase their gas mileage, so more typical driving methods will probably see far lower tank ranges.

700 miles between refills sounds a little bit steep, but hey, if it's true - good for you. besides, temperatures went up, winter gas is going away, and everyone's mpg is climbing up.

anyhow, average around 500 miles before light comes up here. depends on road inclinations, but i think, it is better gauge than between refills. some really push it into almost empty tanks. so - light comes up - check my mileage. was much worse winter time, 478 or so, but slowly climbs up as it warms outside.

800 kms.

it will be much better in about 3 mths, summer heat and no school traffic.

i just did a quick math.

700 miles at 14 gallons refill, safe zone, will make it 50 mpg. even in its wildest dreams, Toyota never marketed anything close to this range. 600 miles at 14 gall refill i can believe, as it makes it 42.5 mpg, and mine did this summer time last year. but 50 mpg - yeah..... unless one drives tank bone dry, then it becomes reasonable. or straight level hwy drive somewhere in plains...

Winter, city only with a 10k each way commute = ~600 km/tank
Summer, mixed driving including the commute = ~900 km/tank

(I fill up at my convenience after it hits just below 1/4 tank, so sometimes it can take a week )

2008 TCH purchased 8/2010.

Total miles driven = 8610
Total gallons = 239.4
MPG = 36


Low = 32.7 MPG
High = 38.9 MPG

Display usually reports 1.3 to 2.4 MPG too high compared to actual.

Are you absolutely positive that the tank holds 17 gallons? If so then you are saying that I can drive another 100+ miles when the display says 0 crusing range? This makes no sense to me at all. Why isn't the gas gauge showing empty when the tank is ACTUALLY very near empty? 3 gallons left seems way to much and needs to be more accurate.

Positive.

Look up the Camry Hybrid Specs/Capacities and you'll see it lists the fuel tank as 17.2 gallons. The manual says the same as well.

I think with nature of the vehicle being a hybrid, some drivers are more likely to try to get the most out of each tank before refueling (for whatever reason) and so they try to cut it as close as possible to empty. It's risky business and if the gas tank is truly empty, the vehicle will not start and drive in EV mode either. Gotta have gas regardless.

Most vehicles only have about 1 gallon of gas left when the needle is right on or just below the empty mark, that's plenty. Toyota shows "empty" when actually there is 1/5 of a tank left or about 20% left. Thank you Toyota for trying to be my Dad, but I am fully capable of managing my own life.

What I would really like to see is another gauge showing actual gallons in the actual tank at any given actual time. Thank You!
