#1126 of 1185 Camry Mileage
Apr 29, 2011 (8:22 am)
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...
#1130 of 1185 Gas milage, and warm up

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.
#1133 of 1185 Re: - warming the car interior
May 15, 2011 (5:17 pm)
Several co-workers of mine used this method of warming the interior of the car up on cold and snowy mornings in eastern Ohio. They bought small ceramic cube heaters, long extension cords, and lamp timers.
When they got home from work they placed the heater in the car, connected the heater to the timer and extension cord, set it to turn on 30 min before they left for work, then plugged the extension cord into an outlet. They usually placed the heater on some kind of heavy base to keep it steady. When it was time for them to leave for work the car was warm and glass was clear or easily scraped clean.
They used this method for years and it saved them both gas and scraping frustration.

30.25mpg. 430.4 miles, 14.228 gallons.
#1135 of 1185 Third Tank

25.95mpg. Did use ac most, or all of the time, plus ripped around, and had fun, now that the engine's broken in. Disappointed, but still liking the car.
