2020 Toyota Corolla you wonít believe the mpg!

This weekend I drove to upstate New York from Philadelphia and back about 500 miles total. On the way up I got 46.7 miles per gallon on cruise control. In New Jersey itís pretty flat but in New York itís up and downhill especially over the Catskills. The CVT transmission acted really weird sometimes it would river up to 4000 RPMs when going downhill after going uphill. Weird. I set the cruise control on 60 mile an hour I was the slowest thing on the road. It mightíve took 15 minutes more than normal going 75 about 4 1/2 hours.

So on the way back I didnít use cruise control. On a flat surface the RPMs were about 1700. On a hill it might go up to 2000. I tried to go 60 miles an hour but it was very from 55 to 65. But when I got home and fill the tank is average out to 51.1 mpg.

Made another trip to upstate New York this weekend from Philadelphia. 48 miles per gallon on the way up 54 miles per gallon on the return trip. All verified at the pump.

The car has the old 1.8 L fuel injection on the intake manifold only engine. Again the CVT transmission acted weird trying to maintain speed in hilly terrain. The mpg is great but I hope it will last as long as the good old fashion automatics. I’ve heard they sometimes don’t.

That's pretty impressive I don't think I have ever beaten the factory numbers in any car while driving anywhere besides the NYS thruway maybe.

All you have to do is go 60 miles an hour. On route 145 which runs from Saugerties to Cobleskill I had to pass a car on a 2 Lane road CVT gave impressive acceleration Much better than I could do with a manual transmission. I don’t know how long it will last, but the performance is impressive
