Do Not Sell My Personal Information



Recommended Posts

Just a quick question as I'm really curious, (and looking for more justification to why I need a 2)


What mpg are your cars returning, ie standard extra urban driving. and around town etc

Cheers Guys :thumbsup:

About 20-22. :lol:

I do alot of motorway driving and alot of that is flat out in fifth (or as flat out as I can get before hitting the limiter).

And when I'm not in 5th then it's at about 6000RPM in 4th making peoples ears bleed when I fly past 'em. :unsure:

You can get good economy if you drive sensibly but MR2s just love up the revs so much you'll be hard pressed to do so. Plus the extra kick and change in engine note at around 5000 (sounds like anyway - I don't watch the rev counter too much)is addictive as hell.

From my NA, best has been 36.64mpg, worst was 26.58mpg.

Average around 31mpg - which is Toyota's 'combined' figure for a UK NA :)

Incase anyones interested, Toyota claim the NA is capable of 35mpg @ 75mph, and 45mpg @ 55mph.

So what does 30mph work out to in litre/100km? I just been for a road trip to the Mount and sucked through a tank of gas for just over 500km. Tank equals 68litres. Thats about 13 litres per 100km.

30 mpg is about 11km/l so that would be about 9 litres per 100km. I think yours works out at 21.5 mpg. Drive quite hard??? or is all your driving in heavy traffic??

Bet thats the 3S-FE though.

Nope, those figures are taken from the UK rev3 brochure - and the only engine specified in there is the 3S-GE :)

I did experiment for a week on my way to work (30 miles each way with around 20 motorway miles) driving at an indicated 60mph (that's near enough 'real' 55mph) - didn't notice any improvement in fuel economy from when I drove at 80. And I won't be doing that experiment for a long while - it's FAR too dangerous driving that slow on the motorway!!!!! :D

look in the engine bay on the passenger side and u can see the tank. it is a black plastic suitcase looking jobby.

the manual and everything i have always read states that it holds 55 litres, but ive never tried to fill it from empty (too much money in 1 go for me, and i woulda thought for jimlad too - being a scotsman and all) :P

Yea I can only put in 40ltrs max as well other wise fuel just gushes str8 out. I always always get 210-220ish mixed driving. I am not a slow driver either. Its wierd but when I granny drive I still get roughly the same mpg as when I floor it about :blink: . Deffo something to do with the unichip.

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
