Today the temp was 40 degrees and my Prius got about 44.5 mpg and my wife's TCH is getting great mpg too! But tomorrow the temp is supposed to be about -45 degrees with the wind chill so her mpg in the TCH will be about 24mpg and my mileage in the Prius will be 34-38mpg. The TCH has an AstroStart and I believe that is knocking the mpg down considerably.

Last week I picked up my new Camry Hybrid.
I admit I was skeptical about the mileage,since I commute 70 each day.
Today I hit the 1/2 tank mark and have driven 350 miles. Here's the math.
What do I attribute to this?
1) Everything I read on the Edmunds board taught me how to drive this car diffently than my past cars.
2) I drive around town doing my errands on only electric mode.
3) How do I achieve this? When under 30 mph, every time I see the gas-engine-in -use display come on, I every so slightly back off the gas petal. Gas engine goes of, electric comes on. Life is good.
Tank of gas is 17.5 gallons
half tank used /2
Half tank of gas is 8.75 gallons
Miles driven 350 miles
Miles per gallon 40

Does the Toyota rear spoiler impact the mileage of the 2008 Camry hybrid.
I recently purchased a 2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid. The dealer threw in the rear spoiler. It had to be ordered. I am getting 40+ mpg on the highway and averaging about 33m mpg in the city. Does the rear spoiler impact the miles per gallon on the car?

I've had it installed since day one ... so I wouldn't know the difference. My wife's mileage has been the same or a little better than your's though. Also ... my dealer wanted $400 for it ... so I'd say you did well.

I have had the car for less than a week. Still learning the ins & outs of the TCH. Are you pleased with how the spoiler looks?

I love the way the spoiler looks, especially from the side. The one's I see without it look like something is missing. We've only had the car a little over a month, and it's my wife's car. I've driven it plenty though. Someone has to explain how to work all the gadgets, and since I read all the manuals cover to cover ... I was doing the explaining .. LOL

Is your computer calculating 40mpg or is this just "the math"? The tank at the half way mark is no where near half way empty. You have about 3 gallomns of gas left when the car hits the "E".

No bigger than the spoiler is I can't imagine it having significant impact on FE. If you like the looks of it, go for it.
#697 of 1005 Question Please TCH
Feb 11, 2008 (7:59 pm)
I am looking into buying a 09 TCH, no one from any Toyota Dealer has been able to answer this question.
I drive between Sedona, AZ & Burbank, CA 4 to 6 times a year. AZ speed 75, CA speed 65 to 70. I am guessing 30% hills and 70% flat.
Can some one give me a ball park answer for MPG?
Just an FYI, I have rented a number of Prius's from Flagstaff and have come to terms with the gliding. I think I have that down.
Thanks for your time with my question.

Ballpark? 38. Maybe a tad more with smart driving, albeit a tad less depending on the size of the hills. More is possible, but less is too, albeit unlikely to be lower than 35.
