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.

24 mpg? I can do better in my 2018 RAV4 LE in the city. My mom has 2015 Yaris L auto 4 door, she's getting about 29 mpg. She's 74 and only drives it in town, no highway driving at all. Her car just hit 44K miles.

Yeah check filters, maybe clean your maf sensor.

I would certainly check the maintenance records to see if everything has been serviced properly by the previous owner(s). You may wish to have a trusted Toyota dealership do a multi-point inspection and possibly a complete 70k (or by now, 75K or 80K?) service.

Hybrid 2013

My Hybrid Rav4 only gets about 28mpg... But that is in real city driving with an average speed of 20mph or less with lots of short trips.

24mpg doesn't sound right, even for stop and go. I do mixed driving, have run oversized or heavier wheels from the beginning, do not granny drive and I've never gotten below 28-29. I'm usually between 30-32. Do you carry a lot of extra weight on these short trips?

Check the spark plugs and air filter if they need replacement, additionally maybe replace the EGR? Do an engine flush/seafoam, clean throttle body?
