That's the nice thing about Fuelly.On my 07 TCH, I counted SEVEN way sto check on mpg.
So you need to be real particular about which mpg you are looking at.
Rolling mpg can vary widely from poor to stellar.
It's the long term average one that I only look at.
The rest is fluctuation like bull peeing when he walks. All over everywhere.
I've had my Camry for a yr now and I have yet to get 40mpg. The highest I've gotten is 39mpg and it continues to lower. I live in southern california where the weather can get as hot as 115 and as low as 30. This last tank I got 25mpg. That is absolutely HORRIBLE. There are other issues as well but I feel we totally wasted our money.
Agreed on the computer mileage. Mine can be off as much as 2mpg.its the overall I'm looking at. I fill the tank, take the mileage and divide by the the gallons that went into the car. I don't much pay attention to the computer mileage due to it being wrong most of the time.
A guy I work with saw this on his Prius.My commute is short ~5mi so the cold start just eats away at my mileage I hover around 40mpg. If I go visiting friends across town I get 55-65 mpg. so the car is capable of these consumption numbers. Big but coming... If my wife is driving, take 10+mpg off my numbers! And she says she does try to drive economically.
Just filled up after first tank of gas since purchase. Only took 12.01 gallons. MPGs on the display are very accurate. 95% city in normal mode only 50 odd miles on freeway.A guy I work with saw this on his Prius.
They bought "twins"... wife was getting 10mpg worse than he was.
He's a mechanic, so before complaining to the dealer, they swapped cars for 2 months.
His mileage didn't change, and she was still down 10.
My wife complains about the 22mpg in her Rav4, but she also seems to feel that the shortest distance between two points is to zig-zag at every intersection, thinking she's spending less time waiting at red lights, but all she's doing is ensuring she will never get a green because every time she turns she's taking herself out of the coordination platoon. Then she complains about her tires and brakes not lasting ?
