Smile Hypermiling a 2001 Toyota Camry (Generation 4)

Hello everyone,

It has been quite some time since my last post on hereand I'm glad to be back for now.

My question is simple but complex at the same time...

How do I properly hypermile my 2001 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder???

Some important facts to aid others in providing accurate information...

-Automatic transmission with Overdrive
-18.5 gallon fuel tank
-Cruise control
-Generic air filter
-Castrol GTX 5w-30 oil every 4,000 miles
-A/C during 100 degree summers

A few things I am curious about for my particular Toyota...

1.) Does my Camry have DFCO?

2.) What is the most efficient speed on the highway?

3.) Coast in neutral or drive for better fuel economy?

I've already checked out the 100 hypermiling tips as well as numerous other sites, but I'm curious from those who own and/or hypermile Toyota Camrys or have experience with Toyotas in general...

I own an UltraGauge EM, have for several months but never installed and calibrated it. The calibration is holding me back, as the nearby highway with mile markers is a bit scary and has slight rolling hills and curves here and there.

If someone could provide me with tips and advice specifically for my vehicle that may not work so well for others, then that would be welcomed as well.
My first goal is to reach an average of 40 MPG...but I'm patient and willing to take baby steps. I don't want to become burnt out on this, I want to receive better mileage then I am now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you everyone
