Fuel Economy in General

People choose the Yaris for a variety of reasons. Many choose it for its fuel economy. This is an important area where the Yaris is believed to out perform its rivals. I think it is appropiate to start a thread for fuel economy here so that members can exchange information on this important topic. My car(see left) has been giving me about 14 kilometers per liter i.e.7.14 liters per 100km. That is about 39.5 miles per imperial gallon or 32.9 miles per US gallon. I believe my numbers are about average among fellow Yaris drivers. I look forward to seeing more postings on this subject.

I have a 2006 auto and I am driving 50/50 city and highway, up hills and on the flats also 50/50, for 100km. to work and back. I find if I drive aggresively I will get 39 mpg. If I take it easy and keep the revs under 2500 at at all times the mpg goes up to 42. I expect that will improve as the car gets more kms. on it. Right now I have 1400kms. on it. Based on the goverment testing I was hoping for, at best, about 44 when the car was broken in. I am really pleased with my Yaris, its quiet on the highway, feels really stable, is peppy, is big inside and just looks well built with quality finishing.

if my conversion is correct... then...

530km/39.33L x 0.62mi/km x 3.78L/g = 31.58 mpg
so that's the reading for american...

i got about the same result as wushu on my first tank. i find that if i drive conservatively my fuel consumption is not that high. so i try to drive conservatively, plus its still in its break-in period. current odo reading is now 975kms nearing the 1,000km first service by toyota.

Interesting! My dealer has never mentioned to me that there should be a 1,000km service. May be we don't have that in Canada, so the next, or first, service due for my car should be at 8,000km. I am now on my 4th tank and the fuel efficiency I have this far achieved is not too different from those numbers that are posted at above by fellow members.

Let me guess, if it uses premium gas, chances are it is a performance car. Can it be an Acura or a German car? Okay, okay, tell me what it is please.

no more guesses??
haha

well, it's got 60L tank plus reserves, so it's not compact performance like civic/celica/prelude or something like that..
