#15 of 17 How many Miles Per Gallon on 2007 LX470
Jan 08, 2012 (6:57 pm)
What MPG is every one getting on LX-470 & what models do you have:
1. In town
2. On the rural highway interstate
I have a 1996 LS 400 that gets:
-27 going 70 MPH
-26 going 80 MPG
-22 all around gas mileage
It has 182,000+ miles on the odometer.
#16 of 17 My Lexus GX470 is only getting 13.3 MPG - Any Suggestions on the problem?

I recently bought a used (pre-owned) 2005 Lexus GX470 with 83Kmi. Most people are saying they get from 16-20 MPG highway using Premium 91 Fuel driving their GX 470's. After driving like a grandma through a full tank of gas I am getting 13.3 MPG highway driving in North Texas (with the AC on). I have been putting regular fuel in the tank and calculate Miles Driven since last fill up divided by what it just took in gallons to fill the tank. Does the Premium really make that big of a difference or is my vehicle in need of something like a tune up? Just one other note... The computer says the average MPG is 16.1 and I have brand new tires....
#17 of 17 2008 GX470 calculated mileage
Jul 01, 2012 (4:28 pm)
We just completed a round-trip from our home near Grand Junction, CO to Denver & back. This is mostly freeway driving on I-70, but we have to cross Vail Pass (over 10K ft.) and The lower part of Loveland Pass where the Eisenhower/Johnson Tunnel is (must be close to 10K ft. too). It's about 250 miles each way.
We averaged 18.8 on the way over to Denver and 19.9 on the way back home. I suppose if we drove a bit slower than 75 where posted (about 100 miles each way) that we might get a bit better mileage. This mileage was calculated, and the on-board display stated about 1.0 more mpg than we actually got. However, I'm pleased with the mileage as it is actually an improvement over our previous ride, a 2010 Honda Ridgeline, that only got 17-18 mpg with a V6 on the same trip.
