#930 of 1185 You will do 2-3 mpg better

You will get your best mpg and slickest running engine in the 40-100 thousand mile range. But even at 120,000, my 1999 4cyl auto still gets a sweet 35-37 at a 72 mph cruise.
I drove a Toyota Versa at a 72 mph cruise and got 41 mpg. The 5 mpg edge was not worth the roomier and more luxurious Camry IMO. I absolutely believe that the 1999 is a much better car than my 2004. I hope to rent a new 2010 soon and give it a spin...

I have a 4 cyl automatic 2010 I bought 2 months ago. I'm only getting 27 mpg with almost all highway driving. I am a very gentle driver and try to squeeze as much from the car as I can. I used to get 29 mpg on my 1992 4 cyl auto Camry that I recently stopped driving. I now have about 2000 miles on the new one. I haven't had anything done like an oil change. Suggestions?

I have to agree that older Camry's are more fuel efficient than those produced since 2000. We have a 4 cyl 2000 Camry and rarely get more than 27-28 on the highway and never better than 19 in the city. It's often less than that in the winter. But it is a comfy car that I enjoy driving. And has had no real repair problems so has been inexpensive to own despite not getting great mileage. You probably will get better mileage once the car is broken in.

People who seem to get 35 - 40 mpg - any hints?
It sounds too good to be true!

I get 32.5 mpg on my commute to work, which is 70% 2 lane highway with some traffic lights and 30% light city traffic. Don't idle, don't mash the gas, make sure you are doing the math properly, and try a tank at 65 mph all highway. I bet you will get into the 30+ range easily.

mcdawgg - what tire inflation do you use? Mine are what the dealer set - I haven't tried to measure yet. I drive 5 - 10 minutes across town - (5 miles) then 15 on the interstate (light traffic at 65 mph) then 3 minutes in a small town. I've done the math 3 times with 26, 27 and 27 as the results. I've been using my '92 Camry for trips around town. I'll keep measuring but it's a puzzle. I should be getting more like yours. It sounds like you're from the South saying "mash."

Tire inflation = 34 lbs, per the inside door jamb. I'm from the snowy North

I just leased a brand new 2010 Camry LE and I want to get the "most" and the "maximum" fuel economy out of my car. I drive very conservatively and I do NOT race or abuse the car while driving it. This will be my point A to point B car for the next 3 years until my lease is up in December of 2013.
I am looking to try to get an average of 30 to 31 MPG fuel economy on my Camry LE. I see that a lot of people do not get that type of mileage and that they get in the mid or upper 20's in MPG fuel economy in their new 2010 Camrys.
When I received my new 2010 Camry LE on the 15th of December it came with a full tank of gas in it, but the needle on the gas gauge was "exactly" on the "F" LINE.
Well, I just filled the tank in my brand new 2010 Camry LE for the 1st time today with regular 87 octane fuel and when I did the mileage per gallon (MPG) calculation it showed that my Camry LE only got 18.17 MPG on its very first tank of gas. I had exactly 4 gallons left in the tank before filling up the car with gas again today.
I went 264 miles and I put 14.53 gallons of gasoline in the tank (264 miles/14.53 Gallons = 18.17 MPG).
I have driven the car on the highway 2/3 of the time since I've owned it and I haven't gone over 65 and 68 MPH. I have also been varying my speed to below 60 MPH while on the highway. I have been driving the car "very gently".
WHY am I getting only 18 MPG on my very first tank of gas? Is anything wrong with my car? Does my new 2010 Camry LE need to be broken in more before I see decent gas mileage on it? Why am I getting such low gas mileage on my car? Does anybody here know? I live up here in the Northeast and I want to try to get 30 MPG fuel economy on my new Camry if I can. Why did my new 2010 Camry only get 18 MPG on its first tank of gas? What's wrong?

I have the 2.5L, 4 cylinder automatic in my 2010 Camry LE by the way.
