#1055 of 1184 2010 Camry LE 4 Cyl Automatic MPG
Jun 30, 2010 (2:08 pm)
Numbers on my brand new 2010 camry:
32 MPG on first fill up with mixed city and highway
30.6 MPG after 2nd fill up with mixed city and highway
most driving are highly, i'd say 60-70 percent, and I drive it pretty gently for the break in period, with a/c on low for the most time here in phoenix.. but the MPG has been amazing so far, it's almost like the number from a civic or corolla.
I hope it stays that way, do i need to use synthetic oil for the engine? does toyota came with regular or synthetic oil in the engine?

That was a fairly rude way to correct someone's error. Let's try to be polite if there's a need to comment. If that's not possible, please just skip the post.

Starting with the 2010 model, the Camry 4-cylinder requires synthetic oil.

Requires? Recommended? Is this the one with the 10K oil changes, which might certainly require synthetics for that length of drain interval?

Requires, and this is the one with the 10K mile oil change intervals.

I wonder if they changed anything in the motor, or the synthetic is just toyota going "European" in that they require the synthetic for the drain interval.

I have been quite dissatisfied with the gas mileage on my 2006 Camry V/6. The car has recently been tuned and trans. and radiator fluids changed. Air filter is new and I use 89 octane when I fill up. The owner's manual recommends 93 octane. I use cruise control whenever I can and drive modestly. No jack rabbit starts nor high speed highway driving. I have wanted to just give it up and get a Prius but I like the Camry otherwise. Any suggestions re. mpg with this car. Would synthetic oil improve mpg??

What mpg are you getting?
