I edited my post but I want to make it perfectly clear. Sorry to threadcrap, but I've called out ukrkoz before and until he justifies his data, I'll keep doing it. He somehow manages impossible gas mileage on the Highlander, and when asked how it's possible, we don't receive an answer. So until he can explain how he manages to defy the laws of combustion with this car, I'm calling liar. Take everything ukrkoz says with a massive grain of salt.

Yep. Thanks for clarifying.

I have no idea why 2012 Highlander Hybrid did that mileage after refuel, on early morning commute from Federal Way WA to Seattle, I90xAirport Way.
Vehicle is stock. No modifications, the only upgrade was high air flow filter. Yokohama LRR tires.

I simply took a picture of that mpg with my phone, as it was indeed amazing.
Also, you saw 2 years worth of Fuelly data.

Guess, I had none better to do than to cheat all those data too. And my Camry Hybrid Fuelly.

Oh, and whitesands here is another liar with his unbelievable Camry Hybrid mpg.

Feel free to examine that picture for Photoshopping.

Cool, so if I change filter and tires, drive to Seattle, I'll see greater than 20% improvement in gas mileage? No chance, but thanks for the justification as it was. I give up trying to scientifically comprehend how you achieve this.

Be frank, I never said such silliness.

It was one of those freak cases when somehow vehicle did that amazing mpg on roughly 20 plus drive. Even in my very original post then, I had no idea why it happened. But so it did. Later on, it went back to normal around 30. Things like this happen. Who knows. Federal Way overall is higher elevation than Seattle, so it was lots of rolling down. No traffic. I have very good foot control worked out after years of driving Camry Hybrid. I use B mode a lot to keep battery charged. Car was fueled at Costco right before this happened, maybe I hit some real nice gas batch.

It's likely combination of some unusual very favorable circumstances that resulted in such great outcome - and I never claimed that to be regular everyday average mpg..

So take it as you wish. If I wanted to, there are ways of taking pic of a hybrid doing 90mpg, but that's cheating. I am not interested, I value my karma.

Be well.

Non Eco mode, 28 in town, 30 highway.. It does peak better in eco mode and crawling off the light, but I feel like I am growing older just waiting to get up to speed.

Just did a 250-mile trip loaded up with kids and gear (all inside). 38 psi, hilly Pacific Northwest conditions, a mix of 65-70 mph highway and dense city driving. Reset the meter at the beginning of the trip and now it reads 28.5 mpg.

I am sure I am not the first person to hit 500 miles on a tank of gas but it is a first for me. And by hitting 500 miles range I mean the range and the distance driven added up to 500. In this case my miles on the Trip A were 467 and the range was at 34 miles, so 501 total. Mileage for the trip was 34.3 calculated.

It is unlucky to be superstitious.

Bought new in Feb 2019. Now have 6700 m miles with a average of 28.5 on every tank. This is acheived by my wife that drives it like she stole it! I have done over 500 miles on a take at 30.3 mpg (tank was topped off to the rim) and on a long trip mostly highway. I really love the Highlander and so does the wifie.

2019 Hybrid Limited, ~2200 miles, purchased first week of April.

My average is ~26-27 mpg mixed...but I'm seeing a big variance depending on the type of driving.

When I'm just going to the gym ~10mins away through suburban streets with a few hills, ~22-24mpg.
When I am on the freeway ~75-85mph, i'm getting 27-28mpg.
But when I'm stuck in traffic (which is basically my daily commute), that is where this baby shines! I was getting 40+mpg in stop and go traffic! So in the last several days of commute I was getting ~32mpg.
