#1123 of 1185 2006 camry v6 34.6 mpg. my new high
Apr 20, 2011 (6:54 pm)
ok. I have 2006 Toyota Camry V6. My Previous best avg was 33.9... I was using castrol synthetic.
My new high is 34.6 mpg.. I am using chevron supreme API SN/ GF5.
So I will not be using synthetic.. Dino oil will do the job, it is only $2 a quart, get better mileage.
So if you guys doing oil change DIY, Make sure you get the oil that have API SN/GF5.

I use Motorcraft Synthetic Blend 5w-20 with no issues ever and am getting 31 mpg in mixed driving now that the temps in the DC metro have warmed up. Straight highway I got 35.9 for a jaunt up to NJ and back. I Buy it at Walmart $14 for the 5 qt jug. I also use Purolator Pure One filters at $5 so the whole deal costs about $20. Most name brand oils willl carry the correct API SN designation and are ok for most vehicles in the US except for VW. VW specs for either Castrol or Mobil 1 full synthetic.

I am consistently getting between 22 and 24 mpg on a 2010 Camry XLE, 4 cylinder. While unhappy with that low number ( though it is for 50% city driving in a large metro), my bigger issue is the in-dash mileage meter. This meter reports the mileage as 26 or 26.5 and yet when I check the mileage manually, it is much lower.
Can Toyota re-calibrate the meter? Has anybody had that done? Or do I just take its readings with a pinch of salt?

I've used Motorcraft semi synthetic 5w-20 in my 05,07, and 09 Camrys and they all loved the stuff. I plan on trying the new Mobil 5000 Super (SN) next and see how that goes.

I just completed 3/4 of my semi-annual sojourn from FL to NH. Naples, FL to Walterboro, SC, to Winchester, VA to Stamford, CT. Each day my trip computer showed just above 41 mpg in my 2011, heavily loaded XLE Camry I4.
As an example, from Walterboro, SC to Winchester, VA, my GPS says the distance was 326.2 miles, time traveled 5:24, average fuel economy 40.1 mpg and fuel cost of $29.24 using a $3.77 per gallon price. I have approximately 6800 miles and will change my synth oil for the first time in September. I am thoroughly pleased.
BTW. I'm getting sick and tired of all the whining and belly-aching about fuel prices from the public and lame-stream media. I set my cruise control on 60 and from FL to CT the complainers were flying by me doing 70-80 mph. If they want to *itch about fuel prices do something about conserving fuel!
OK, off my soapbox.

You probably forgot to count in manifold pressure to atmospheric pressure ratio. It is roughly 1/8 - hence result will be 8 times less.
If lunch will be guaranteed I will check tomorrow manifold pressure on my Camry when it warms up Note that RPM and manifold pressure changes when engine warms up. Best would be to integrate fuel burned via OBD-II scanner and then normalize counting fuel pumped on the gas station versus ODB-II integral number between two fill-ups. Could do latter as well...

I let my car settle down, let the tach come down to under 1,000 rpms before I drive it, just so it won't jerk when I put it in gear. 30 sec? First tank on my 2011 2.5l AT 32.09mpg.

GPS MPG is not accurate.. in your case, the actual mpg is probably around 38.

I recommend you should check the tire pressure PSI. I bought one from sears. it is craftsman digital tire pressure guage. cost around $20. It is very useful.
I am not sure what PSI recommend for 2010 camry.. I think 32 PSI.
