I wish that engine had been made available in the U.S. My 2001 Suzuki Swift (the car I had before my '07 Yaris) had 70 HP. With the 5-speed manual transmission, and low curb weight, that was more than enough.

Past weekend I made a trip long 375 miles and spent 30 litres or 7.9 US gallons. Computer shows 4.4 l/100km or 53,5 mpg but real is 47.8 mpg it was open road but freeway only 25 miles, average speed was about 42 mph but conditions of road do not allow faster driving, four of us was in car. and at freeway (fuel burning part of route) had additional 220 pounds of weight and max speed 87 mph ;)

I thought the last two tanks on my 2014 dipping slightly might be because of cold weather. I checked the tire pressure at all four corners today. I now think low tire pressure () was a factor. I wish the TPMS trip threshold PSI was higher.These tires don't seem to hold pressure as well as any I've had on my 2007. I wonder if this is because the are the crappy Goodyear Assurance OEMs that many USDM 3rd Gen owners complain about...or if it is because the dealer inflated the tires with nitrogen and included free refills from the dealer (the benefits of the PAC sticker were still included even though they took the PAC sticker off the price before listing the car on cars.com)

I had a Suzuki Swift before my '07 Yaris. I took that car on the car ferry from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland. I drove over 2,000 miles around Newfoundland. In rural areas I sometimes encountered roads where speed (irrespective of the limit) was limited re bad road conditions. Most of these roads were unpaved (no asphalt nor concrete), and some had horrible potholes. Later in the trip, while heading west on the Massachusetts Turnpike, I realized my steering rack was just about shot and I could only put about 500 more safe miles on the car (it already had 151,000 + miles on it). I plopped myself down in Chicopee and started searching dealer websites for the right Yaris. If the Cars.com site with the advanced national search function was available at that time (as it was in 2014 for my 2014 Yaris), I didn't know about it. This was in 2006 and Cars.com had only launched in 2004. I searched hundreds of dealer websites and only found 5 new Yaris cars with manual transmissions. I bought the first one that I actually found in inventory.

Why in America most cars are with automatic transmissions not manual, here in Bosnia no one doesn't even think about automatic transmissions? And I know that car with automatic transmission has lower MPG.
After my long trip I fill my tank to the top and till now I made 194 miles (124 at open road and 70 miles in city) and I spent 15,75 liters of fuel and get 45 MPG. And I am more than satisfied

That is an extremely good question. It's sad. I wish we were more like Bosnia in that respect . I think laziness and an unfortunate growing tendency toward people wanting to take the easiest (but what might not end up being the most satisfying) option. It is also harder even if kids want to learn how to drive a manual because there don't seem to be as many cars so equipped available. Within my whole family on both sides, I think every driver over age 30 knows how to drive a manual as opposed to zero under age 30.

Manual is the best. I hope to never own an automatic but since autos are more popular some cars don't even come with a manual

new '12 5dr hatch owner here.

Using pure gas here and some mild hypermiling techniques (+ or - 5 mph of the speed limit depending on momentum), I've seen highway trips between 37-43 mpg and around town trips ranging from 35-50 mpg. This car is super efficient in 4th gear and 30-40 mph speeds.

I knew gas mileage would be higher than posted, but now I'm really glad I didn't pony up the extra cash for a prius c.

2007 yaris

I bought this Yaris 2 years ago with 33k miles in it. Everything was OEM including the tires and I was getting 35 MPG city/hwy (8am-5pm M-F in the Bay Area) at 55 MPH. After owning it for a year, I changed the tires to stock OE Miata wheels+tires 14x5 with 195/60 and my MPG dropped to 34. Then I had the throttle body & injectors cleaned... That was 9 months ago. I am now getting 36 MPG and it doesn't matter how I drive it. I stay 70-75 sometimes and most of the times I don't go on the freeway because of the traffic on 880. I still get 36 MPG on my 14" wheels!! Drive from NorCal to Reno I get 39 MPG. Reno to NorCal I can get 45 MPG. That's at 65+ MPH.

I'm wondering if the repeated shutting off and starting engines at stop lights might drain the battery and wear the starter motor . When I had a paper delivery route, I did this and it caused problems .I could see doing this at known long stop lights. Also shifting an automatic to neutral at lights while running the engine may reduce a bit of consumption.

So after a few years of owning I generally averaged 41 mpg mostly a combined highway/sort of city driving. heavy traffic drops to the 30s depending on lots of conditions.

Long slow 40ish mph backroad driving gets me close to 50mpg. Usually about 49 tops both ways. Only going mostly downhill can I get over 50 ever. Some people have claimed to get over 60mph but if they're telling the truth they had to have been going downhill the whole time or did some car modifications, at least if they're driving an auto transmission, maybe sticks can get better with the extra gear but high 40s is where I top out no matter what I do, how I drive, literally no hitting of brakes till I arrive at my destination. 50 is as good as it will get for me. I might so some minor mods later. Thinking about taking off the hubcaps soon.

I am no eco driver specialist and I can only report the worst milage you can get

From experience I can tell you that for a 500km trip with an average trip speed of 140km/h my 01 Yaris TS averages 28mpg..

That trip includes steep uphill highway roads, long stretches and frequent toll stops.

You get the same milage driving like an ass in the city with a lot of traffic light drag races..
