Scion XA in PA

Just joined group. I do a 100 mile/day commute and am always trying to stretch the mileage on my 2006 Scion XA. Average mileage over the vehicle life is just over 39mpg. Last five tanks, (recently added a scangauge) is up to 42.5mpg.

I have a years worth of fuel logs I would love to import. Is there a way to do that without manually entering them?

Thanks...

There's not really a good way to get it from the paper to the fuel log without doing it manually. Just get some ice cream and get to work!

Welcome to the site. The xA is great little car and is capable of hitting over 50 mpg. Check out the 100+ ecodriving tips page and specifically look at pulse and glide technique. Good luck!

I just recently converted my paper log to Excel. So I am not excited about reentering it again manually. I will start fresh now and if I get really bored one day will back enter data from the last year.

50+ would be great, that is my target point right now. Haven't really tried the P&G yet, but I have implemented a number of the other techniques in the ecodriving tips.

It's a great little game to tweak up the mileage little by little.

I'm in the Harrisburg area, I spent about 6 years in Columbia, SC so I know that area. Only made it to Atlanta a few times.

Greetings,

It's good to hear from a fellow xA owner -- I have a 2005 RS 2.0. I have averaged just over 37mpg for the three+ years I've owned it, including winter driving. My high (so far) is 43.5mpg -- though now that I have duct taped the upper grill opening (the RS 2.0 has a unique open honeycomb grill), the current tankful is on track to beat that!

Is yours a 5-speed or the automatic? the reason I ask is, on my car the engine revs to ~2,800RPM at 55mph and ~3,400RPM at 65mph. I know people who own a 5-speed Yaris sedan (virtually the same platform) and they do ~2,500 at 65mph...

Neil,

Mine is a 5 speed and 2800 at 55 sounds about right, it rev's higher than I expected at speed, but that seems to be OK based on the mileage it gets, I will double check on the drive home and report back if I am mistaken. When I bought this I also test drove a Yaris, the dealer said it was the same power train, but the transmission felt totally different while driving it, in fact it was the main reason I went with the Scion, it may have just been that car, but I did not like the Yaris tranny at all.

Hello,

I just wish there was a sixth gear...2,000RPM at 55mph and 2,500RPM at 65mph would be great. If anybody knows if the Yaris has a different final drive ratio, or if it has a different transmission -- or both, PLEASE let us know?

At least 75% if the time I just shift from third to fifth. Fifth is perfect for 40-45mph IMO.
