What mpg can I expect from an 05 corolla?

pretty base, ce, 5sp.
Light careful low rpm driving without any pulse n glide. Just basic easy eco minded driving. Low 40s?

It looks like you're getting over 40 MPG with your Saturn and Pontiac; a Toyota Corolla should get better gas mileage than those two, if similarly driven and similarly ecomodded.

Ya, those were a while ago. I come n go with eco/hyper driving. Hag nothing but a suburban for a while, never even checked. The corolla has the same exact engine and 5 speed as the vibe (same assembly line) so I expect simular results. I did break 50 once in the Saturn so I can pull the numbers if I want too bad enough.

I won't be running higher tire pressure or even trying hard until spring or summer (so cold and winter gas) with the corolla. Just will drive easy but won't be able to help myself from checking mileage.

The Corolla weighs almost 200 pounds less and has a 0.30 drag coefficient versus the 0.33 drag of the Vibe, so it should better if driven the same.

Why not inflate the tires though? Just a few PSI can increase the MPG without making that much of a difference in ride quality.

Gotcha, I totally get the inflated tires thing. Right now I'm still knee deep in snow on my long driveway so the normal tire pressure adds a little more grip. Thanks for the weight and cd numbers. Summer gas, hard tires, and warmer weather (much quicker into closed loop) should provide for much better than those epa mileage ratings.

For sure. With that and either a Scangauge or Torque app you should have no problems easily beating the EPA numbers.
