I don't know where you live, but living in Florida I too had an average of 23 mpg city driving probably until my 1st oil change at 10k miles. after the oil change where i requested mobile1 only 0w20 without running a/c all the time i average 28-30 mpg city. I also replaced original air filter with k&n (well worth the $40.00 investment) toyota filter gets dirty too quickly and engine feels sluggish and not very fuel efficient (p.s. I was my filter every oil change which i do at 7500 miles. I currently have 28k miles and average 360-400 on about 11 gallons of fuel 50/50 driving. Also keep you tires inflated to 34lb (35 is max) helps mpg a lot. A/C has a SIGNIFICANT impact on fuel economy. Hope this helps.Report it
The only way you get 17MPG with this car is if your feet are on the accelerator and brake at the same time. With mixed driving and AC use I get 28MPG.Report it
The EPA tests the car, not Toyota. The fuel tank is 13.2 gallons, not 12. We have never seen that low mpg - always at or above the EPA ratings with our type of driving.Report it
Oh, and very short trips KILL mpg on any car. If you are only putting on less than 5,000 in the next 6 months, there's another reason your mpg is low.Report it
