The worst I can get is in city traffic with lots of stop & go traffic, poor traffic light sequences & heavy congestion yields sub 5 MPG. Avg overall is mid 20s mpg.

Not sure what I can do to net gains. I inflate my tires 1-2 psi above the door jam 35 PSI recommendation. Sidewall max PSI is 51. I hope to not induce premature tire wear by exceeding the manufacturers PSI rating. .

How accurate is the Toyota MPG screen?
Honestly it's very dangerous to run a 51 max psi tire at 33psi
it's under inflated

you can have a blow out

as you can see on this tire it's at 32psi Riding the side wall it wore the corners of the tire.

about 40% side wall compression Hot PSI was 36
I put it to 45PSI HOT PSI is 45 0% fuel lost to heat
