#481 of 599 My disappointment with Yaris 3dr auto hatchback 07 mileage
Apr 14, 2010 (3:23 pm)
I bought a blue Yaris 2007 Automatic 3 dr hatch in 2006, only because it promised the highest mileage among non hybrid cars then, 39 mpg hwy. Even sacrificed manual window and door lock for this.
I get only 28 mixed (live in Chico, CA and there is hardly any traffic) and max 31on a day long trip of 300 miles(that's maximum it goes on a full tank on long distance trips).
I hear people getting up to 42 mpg on the same car and Toyota never cared saying its standard variation in mpg on the same model.
Anyone share the same disappointing experience with Yaris?

I wish I could help you out, but I have averaged 36.4 MPG for the 3 years I have had my 2007 Yaris automatic hatchback with 74% being in the city. I average about 3 MPG better in the summer than in the winter, so if I lived year round in CA, I would probrably get another mile or two per gallon. Keep your tires inflated to 44 PSI as stated on the tire walls, change oil every 3000 miles, and don't hot rod, you should be doing better.

I have a 2007 automatic I have never got even 30 mpg. I even had it checked at the dealership.

Glad to know that I'm not the only one that gets bad mpg from this car.
I have never broke 30 mpg. I have also noticed that the sticker mileage has went down on the 2010.

You got a lemon, thats to bad they're pretty good cars for the money. I read on this site about people getting up to 50 mpg, I think they are sniffing to many fumes. I've got a 2008 hatchback auto, live in Southern California and I get up to 38 if I baby the gas peddle but as a rule I get 34 mpg normal driving.....75% on the highway at 80 to 95 mph, I take off from the lights with my foot on the floor, it's a wonder I'm not dead, I'm the guy that pisses you off zigzaging in and out of lanes.
#486 of 599 New Personal Mileage Record
Apr 24, 2010 (7:40 am)
I just got an all time high on my 2008 manual xmission today at fill-up. 424.8 miles on 9.96 gallons for 42.6 MPG. That's normal driving -- 30 miles each way from No. Mass to So. NH, 60 MPH most of the time, up to 75 MPH, passing, "playing" on some curvy backroads, etc. In other words, just driving the car. It has just under 19K miles. The worst mileage I've gotten so far is 38 MPG average for a tank. Most tanks are 40-41 MPG.
I'm going to be trading it for a Honda Fit next weekend, I hope it does as well.

According to this link the Yaris and Fit get similar mileage
The Fit has some great internal configurations for space, but the "real world" fuel mileage seems disappointing to many of it's owners, according to the Fit forums.

Firs tank completed. Brand new engine, 11 miles on it at delivery. Same driving conditions as the Yaris for my commute -- New England "mixed" driving, little stop and go to be considered city driving -- I live in No. Central Massachusetts and my 30 mile commute is into So. NH , averaging about 50 MPH.
Normal driving, plus some "spirited" excursions down some twisty roads to check the handling, and some trips to the engine's redline a couple times to check acceleration. Results: 377.7 miles on the first tank, 9.3336 gallons to fill it. 40.46 MPG on paper, 40.7 average reported by the car's average MPG gauge.
That said, I've owned LOTS of cars, and the Yaris was amongst the best. I can tell I'll love the Fit, but there's still some things I'd like to see in it from the Toyota. They're both awesome cars, and it's about time we started getting decent small cars in the USA.
