Our 4 cyl. front driver has gotten several tankfulls just over 27 mpg, one 29, and one with a Thule cargo box driving a lot at 70 - 75 mph when we got 26 mpg!
The on board computer is spot on, within a tenth when we check. Not so for our former ride, an '06 Highlander Hybrid; it was always 1 - 2 mpg lower than the display.

Thanks for your input... lots of people don't know how much fuel rating affects any car performance.
I'm a heavy foot in HWY and light in the city, some air condition as require in New England summer.
My V6 AWD Venza does avg. of 19.5 MPG. I had a 2009 Prius package #3 and that thing did 41 with the Heater/AC on 90% of the time, and I drove it hard... I mean HARD in the city. We do miss the fuel economy (the MPG) but NOT the car.
I love this baby just would like Smaller rims for once like an 18" rims with fat tires so that I can treat it like an SUV and go on country off roads trails (not the very tough ones).
This 20" rims are too bouncy, jumpy and busy ride. For the few first days I drove it, I almost felt sick to my stomach of so much bounciness. This rims size should be an option.
Also, the FIT AND FINISH quality is more like a FORD type inside than TOYOTA or Lexus. The Price is somewhat expensive and the driving it has like a .5sec lag. It does feel a bit disconnected from the road but I think is because its 8.1" of ground clearance.
19.5 MPG for Me!

In Canada, this car is rated about 7 l/100km highway and 10 l/100km city. For my first tank of gas in my new Venza I got...14.7 l/100km all city driving, hvac on the lowest setting the whole time. That's 50% more than rated. I'm not impressed.

2011 FWD, I4
I am close to empty on my second tankful of gas and am looking at 25.2mpg according to the built-in calculator.
I am also somewhat disappointed so far as I had hopes of seeing above 27mpg due to my daily commute of 80 miles 65mph.

2009 I-4 AWD.
One more thing - it takes about 10 miles for the car to "warm up" and while it does it consumes lots of fuel (especially in winter). Even if you drive highway expect:
trip: 3 miles - 15 MPG average
trip: 15 miles - 22 MPG average
trip: 60 miles - 26 MPG average
trip: 100 miles - 29 MPG average
But after about 10 miles it starts to get really good MPG. So if you take a really long trip (more than 100 miles) you can get 30 MPG.

Installed a K&N air filter, not sure what cone refers to...anyway it seems to have a small impact to gas savings but it is there.

And you may have gotten that much or more impact with a new paper air filter.
