2015 Yaris Hatchback 24mpg

Bought a used 2015 Yaris Hatchback, about 70k miles, brand new tires, getting 24mpg consistently driving in stop and go traffic for short distances. Is this normal, and what should I have checked out on the car? Air filters?

Thanks!

yes. its is normal. stop and go traffic is extremely bad for a car and will get the worst millage due to constant start and go.

I would tend to get new spark plugs and filters buying a used car. Also, if you leave it on defrost or foot+windshield setting on the HVAC knob, you might be constantly driving with AC on, so 24mpg isn't so surprising.

I get about 33mpg summer and 26mpg in the winter. I drive about 3 miles each way from/to work, twice a day. No traffic, just a bunch stop signs.
