  1. Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Hello there! I bought a 2002 echo (72,000mi) a year ago and it has always ran great but only gets 29-34mpg. I owned a 2001 echo (210,000mi) before this newer one and it has always gotten 37mpg. I have cleaned the throttle body and MAF sensor, added fuel injector cleaner to fuel, replaced spark...
  2. General Discussion
    I don’t have much knowledge about cars but this is what I understand. Whenever the engine is on, the alternator will always be generating electricity to power all components while charging the battery, because it is connected to the engine via serpentine belt. Does this mean even if you have a...
  3. Sienna 1st Generation (1998-2003)
    So my wife was just blessed with a 2000 Sienna and it's absolutely beautiful and we love it. However, as we've been driving it we have been logging the fuel mileage using an app called FillUp. According to the app the van is only getting about 14 mpg. Does this sound right or am I missing...

    I’ve noticed once I reach about a 20 mile range, my gas range goes down to zero miles within a mile or so! Now yesterday it said I had 39 miles left and I drove about a quarter mile and it went to zero! Can someone please explain this. I have a 2015 Corolla LE. Also I noticed when I first...
  5. Sequoia Forum
    I have a 2005 Toyota Sequoia with 215k miles. Over the last several months, I have been experiencing significant declines in fuel system efficiency. I used to get 360 miles on a tank and I am now down to 200 – 220 per tank. I will list all the symptoms below. Symptoms: 1) Significant drop in...
  6. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Hi All, It's my first time posting, though I always appreciate reading your input on others' questions. My 2000 Corolla CE with 130K miles has had a big drop in gas mileage over the last couple months. Before I got approx 30 city/35 highway; recently I'm getting more like 23/28. No persistent...
  7. Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    We bought a 2015 Corolla LE Plus this past Thanksgiving weekend. The tank went from full to ¾ full after 38 miles of city driving. The onboard MPG calculator said it was getting 16 MPG (it’s rated 29 city/38 highway. When we took it back to the dealer the sales consultant said that’s normal –...

  10. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I own a 2013 Camry LE that's about 7 months old and has not quite 11k miles. When I first bought the car the computer would indicate a 424 mile cruising range upon fill-up. Recently I noticed that that number seems to have dropped to around 390. I thought gas mileage was supposed to improve...

    I have a 1993 Toyota Camry V6 XLE. the head gasket blew up on it a few moths ago and I just got done replacing that. after The car is running fairly well with the exception of some minor issues I am having. First I would like to say: I have already run a compression test and all 6 cylinders...
  12. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    Trying to think of ideas to up the efficiency of the car to improve mileage. More as an experiment than anything else. I read an article about hypermiling and while some of the ideas are neat, they aren't practical. One of them suggested ripping off all badges, roof racks, spoilers, adding...
  13. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I've recently purchased my 96 corolla from a private owner. The mileage on the vehicle is still relatively low for the age of the vehicle and the car runs pretty well. Doesn't sputter, doesn't hesitate, no smoke from the tail pipe. Starts every time. Soon after purchasing the car I realized...
  14. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I come from a long line of 1980s tiny cars that got amazing gas mileage (350-400 per 10gal tank) and with my new 2011 LE I wish it did better than a max of 35mpg. I know the extra weight from all the shiny new power controls weigh down the car, but is there anything that's not ridiculously...

    Hi! I have a 1995 V6 LE that just rolled over to 64k miles yesterday! Probably one of the cleanest 95s out there and I love her to death! I have replaced both CV shafts (they were the originals and obviously 18 year old rubber is going to crack) but other than that only preventative/routine...

    :help: Hi all, I am in So Cal so gas is off-the-chart high. First off I want to thank all of TN for such an outpouring of time spent answering questions. I think the T100 Nation is the closest knit and really proud to be a part of it. I know there are several bits and pieces of advice on...

    I am thinking of buying a 1991 Toyota Camry sedan on craigslist. I have been looking for something that gets good gas mileage along with good reliability.
