Bro in-law says he doesn't regret not getting the BMW. Reason: you can have fun doing what the Camry does best all the time. If you do what the BMW does best all the time, you'll lose your licence.

Did about a 1000 km mostly freeway trip with my sister in her Camry.

The tank there: about 6.1 L/100 km (37.9 mpg US), maybe 25% urban / 75% freeway, into a light (<15 km/h) headwind, with A/C. Driving conservatively.

Return tank: 5.7 L/100 km (41.3 mpg US) , 95% freeway, driving conservatively, little wind, little A/C use.

Car is rated 5.7 city & 5.7 hwy by Transport Canada. Rated at 40 mpg/city and 38 mpg/highway by the EPA.

It's got about 5000 km total on the clock. Based on this trip, I'd say here's another car whose fuel consumption ratings will be nearly impossible to beat if driven "normally".

On my shifts behind the wheel, I didn't P&G, but did moderate DWL, and stuck to the right lane. Average freeway speed was probably 105 km/h (65ish mph). I passed maybe a dozen vehicles over many hundreds of kilometers. My sister drove a few km/h faster on her shifts, but still mostly right lane, below the average speed of traffic, and wasn't as steady with the pedal.

It's been a long time since I drove such a quiet car. It was an eerie sensation at first.
