Default 2007 Camry MPG?

Hi folks. Excuse me if this thread has been written about before but I'm
wondering what you're getting for MPG with the new model. I've got a 4
Cylinder and have gotten 30-32 on all highway driving but it appears that
the local driving is well below the 24 that's been estimated. On tanks which
are mainly highway driving with a small amount of local driving, I'm getting
around 25 overall - seems low to me.

Thanks.

We bought a new 2007Camry Hybrid about 2 months ago. I'm very pleased
with the MPGs, on trips the most we got was about 41MPG , from 35 to
40 MPG around town. It has to do with how short the trips are around
town. The longer the trips, the better the car warms up, and the
better mileage you get.
I am a seasoned Hybrid driver also - having owned a Honda Insight for
almost 3 years. It is a 5speed stick and I have got tankfulls of
70MPG + . I like the Insight a lot - much sporterier than the camry
(two entirely different cars but the same result - to save gas, and
generate almost 0 polution). I traded a 1999 Lincoln TownCar (Touring)
for the INSIGHT. I am a happy man!
My wife drives the CamryHybrid about 98% of the time - mostly around
town. She actually cut in half the amout of gas she is using. Her
previous car (2003 Nissan Murano) tipically got about 15 to 18 MPG
around town, she now getting on average of 38MPH around town.
Hybrids are the best you can do so far - I believe carmakers will be
offering more and better choices in the future.

Yeah, yeah, I know. A hybrid. They weren't too available here and I needed
to get a car quickly so I didn't go for one. BUT, I bet you knew I wasn't
asking about them! Thanks for the information (and gloating!) anyway.

AND, good luck with the car.

Driving habits affect the MPG. On the same car (4cyl 5,000+ miles) my
wife and I get a different MPG just because of driving habits. You
might be accelerating too fast and braking too hard. My wife didn't
want to believe me at first but when we got the MPG data then she now
knows its true. Try it.

We use Costco regular fuel.

Just over 2 months in my possession, 6077 miles, 215.276 gallons
purchased......28.2 mpg. Probably 90% on the highway, 73-74 mph with 70
speed limit, 65-66 mph when 60 speed limit. Just came back from a
trip cross-state, (Washington) driving Interstates (70 speed limit) and
about 150 miles on US highways (60 speed limit) that included crossing
the Cascade Mountain range, and back......29.1 mpg heading east, 29.0
coming back.......30+ mpg, let alone 33 as the EPA says is possible, is
but a dream.
SE model, 4 cylinder, auto transmission, all season tires on the 17"
rims. Tried to open it up the other day on a straight stretch.......I
was only able to get it up to 105 mph......might have gotten a little
more if I had had a longer stretch.....Gets to 90 easily, it really
works to get more. For more top end you'll want the V-6; Motor Trend
gave it raves in the latest issue-- 0-60 in 6.2 seconds! The four
can't touch that, 110 less hp is REALLY noticeable!


Love the car,

Stan

It's certainly a dream with your driving habits, anyway. Our
'95 will get in the high thirties on the highway, but that's
driving at about 58-65 mph, no top speed trials, and no really
hard acceleration.

Last Thankgiving holiday, drove from LA to Palm Springs and back, total
of 437 miles. I zeroed the odometer after filling the tank. Filled it
up again and put in 17.112 gallons. Filled it up to the brim so I can
see the level. Imagine 18.5 gallons capacity on the tank.

About 75% highway and 25% city drive. During the trip I also went to
Palm Spring Aerial Tramway which is 2,000 ft above sea level, so you
can imagine the incline. On the freeway I would cruise on 80 mph. 3
adults and 2 kids + cargo.

Not too bad for a four cylinder. By the way, I used Premium Gasoline.

You used PREMIUM gas in a FOUR cyl?? What a colossal waste of money.
