2012 Toyota Camry SE: Highway Fuel Economy
March 26, 2012
So I went on a bit of a road trip this weekend. The trip up was 228 miles door-to-door and the Camry (despite craptacular traffic escaping L.A.) earned 33 miles/gallon, or 2 mpg shy of the official EPA estimate. While there, I logged about 35 miles around town and drove back, earning 28 mpg, or exactly the EPA combined figure. The near-500-mile drive averaged 30-miles per gallon. I was about to claim "best tank" for my 33 mpg until I glanced at the entry belonging to "JD" who managed to eke out a 36 mpg average over a piddly 174 miles.
I also found a trip screen that reminded me very much of one in the Toyota Prius.
