1999 Camry V6 automatic: 33 mpg (US)

Just a note on results of driving a Camry V6 last weekend:

EPA rating (new) is 17/25/20
Model 1 Vehicle Characteristics
  • 3.0L v6
  • automatic transmission
  • 4 adults on board
  • AC on
Route: some urban driving (say 8 km), followed by 35 km of rural highways (about 75 km/h average, 85 km/h max)

I managed 33 (US) mpg with route planning, driving with load, neutral coasting, driving without brakes, and some engine off coasting (not much - unassisted steering is very heavy in this car).

Someone else drove the return trip (no urban stuff on the other end, and downhill) and got 28 mpg (US).

Interesting, shows what a difference you can make with simply adjusting your driving. I've been trying to get an idea of what I might be able to do with my car, considering I have an auto trans. and a v6, this sort of gives me an idea of what can be done. Thanks Metro.

I use to have a lexus es300 with the 3.0 1mz. At 80 mph it could get 30 mpg all day long
