#1088 of 1185 Camry Mileage
Dec 19, 2010 (3:10 pm)
Hi Friends I bought 2009 Toyota camry XLE 3.5L ,V6 and it has 15000 miles on it few months ago.I recently started checking my car fuel consumption. It has given 15 miles per gallon in the city( its a mixed I drove more on the highways also). I showed it to the showroom, they checked and said nothing is wrong. I filled the tank and today i checked it again ,it dropped to 14 miles per gallon ( this time I drove 40% of my trip on highways) I don't know what to do. Please help me.

I don't think it is normal to get only 10-12 mpg on a Camry, even a 6 cyl. But we have a 4 cyl Camry (2000) that in winter only gets about 15-17 in the city...and never does better than 19 mpg in city driving, no matter what season. It's Estimated mpg for city is 23, so it is a long way from that. I think Camry must do something for their testing to boost the Estimated MPG. But others claim they do get 23 in the city and over 30 on the highway.
Are you sure you are figuring the mileage correctly? Fill up/write down mileage/drive till at least 3/4 empty and fill again. Then divide miles driven by the gallons to refill. Better yet, do this over several fill ups to compensate for overfilling or underfilling, which can happen. I would ask the dealer why they rate the car at 22-23 mpg in the city if it is normal to get only 10-12. That sounds crazy!

10-12 mpg in the city in a Camry is way extreme, to the point of unlikely, something wrong. My 94 V6 ran about 18mpg in town, my 05 4 cyl AT got 22-24 mpg, my 07 4 cyl stick got 25-26 mpg, and my 09 hybrid returns a solid 32-35mpg.
I got 13 mpg from a V8 powered Nissan Titan, can't imagine a Camry doing worse than that unless fuel is being stolen out of the tank or running out of a fuel line somewhere.

I marvel at some of the theories on how to fill your tank to check accurate mileage....lol.. .. FILL it UP.. till you can see the gas up to the top of the neck everytime... then calculate your mileage and it will be correct... I also have a 2000 Jetta tdi..after it clicks off and i can fill another 2.1 to 2.2 gas...How do you expect to get an accurate reading like that?..... I have a 2001 chevy astro (drives me crazy) that once it clicks off, i can squeeze 4.5 to 5.1 more gals.. How do you expect to get an accurate reading... YOU CANT.... Unless you top it off everytime..
Good to see you troylikesbikes.. long time no see dude... Caazguy

Actually, although your "fill it to the top" method is indeed most accurate, it's not absolutely necessary.
If you regularly use the same pump, and we assume it always automatically clicks off at the same point every time, it's only necessary to be consistent over a period of time to gete an accurate calculation of fuel mileage.
BTW, I'm still getting in the mid thirties around town and low fourtys on the interstate on my 2011 Camry 4.

346 miles of mixed driving around Venice, Fla required 15.34 gals=22.55 mpgs...It's a 2002 4 cyl, XLE with 82674..Perfect mechanical condition, lady driven, maybe sunroof was open and a/c could have been on..Car has been in Fla for 4 yrs, and always garaged, oil changed every 3k miles..Weather has been colder during the last days, so that probably cut a couple mpgs..
Filled up my 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GT w/260hp, supercharged V-6 that went 330 mi requiring 14.583 gals=22.62mpgs..Driving on this tank was 191 miles on I-75 at speeds 75-90+ and the balance of 139 miles around Venice..Indicated average MPG was 24.0..No a/c, however sunroof is open around town..
My Mustang GT averages around 20 around town and maybe 22 on the eway at 75+..
The Camry usually gets around 24 in city driving which isn't really great for a 4-banger..

All of my 4 cylinder Camrys (2005,2007,2009) could crack 33+ mpg on the highway, but thats pure highway. The 05 could get 23mpg around town, the 2007 was good for 26mpg around town, and the hybrid is good for 33 mpg. So 24 mpg in city driving for a Camry is not bad at all. But with mixed driving it should be better, considering how well these things handle highway driving.
My Mustang GT (2004) was an 18mpg around town 28mpg on the highway, 5 speed stick.
