Current Corolla MPG

#4
Copying and Pasting my own post from another thread,

"
.... If I were to drive on the highway right after filling up, I could get into high 30s mpg, 40s if I'm going downhill, lol! But by the end of the week of driving about 40% Highway and 60% streets, it would drop into the low 30s and even high 20s if I've driven "aggressively". If I can end my week at 32 MPG, it would have been a "good week" Currently I'm at 31.5 MPG driving on the highway to work and streets for my other trips (again, at about 40% Highway and 60% streets).

Having said this, sometimes I'm disappointed at this especially thinking about how the Elantra and Civic get better mileage with a more powerful engine. I'm banking on the Rolla's rep for reliability to make me sleep better at night for passing up Elantra and Civic for my Corolla."

" .... just thinking about some of the reports I've read...saying even under real driving conditions, the Elantras and Civics still get better mileage with an overall more powerful engine. Also, Toyota says the CVTs are supposed to get better mileage but my sister's 8-9 y/o (2010), non CVT AT Corolla still gets the same mileage as mine, when I drive her car on my routes. Sigh... "

In most cases it should be easy to exceed EPA estimates for fuel economy, but it takes a bit of knowledge and practice applying some hypermiling techniques. If you're serious about getting better MPG, read up on https://ecomodder.com/forum/ and see if you can adjust the nut behind the wheel.

My last tank averaged 40.5 MPG in a 2020 manual which is rated at 29/36/32. Granted, I've been hypermiling for a while now, but I think you should be able to adjust your driving behavior to get better results than you're seeing now.

I averaged 42.6 MPG my first month of driving my 2020 Corolla SE Sedan 6-MT. Most of that was unhindered straight-shot highway driving at 65-68 MPH in 6th gear around PHX, AZ. A/C has been on auto-control 70-72 degrees during that time.

Ahhh...after reading up on Hypermiling...i do that at night on surface streets...When i see a red light ahead and no one behind me, i ease off and try to "coast" until the light turns red to avoid having to come to a stop...i've always wondered if a cop would pull me over for driving too slow and suspiciously, lol.
