Poor MPG for Yaris Hybrid


Recommended Posts

Often get 40odd mpg with ours.

Nothing much to do with aircon or style of driving, but HILLS, and here's lots of them here.

Longer journeys we get 50odd or even 60 ish as roads open out. Locally, any car would suffer in the economy stakes.

Hybrids are most economical in town driving and A & B roads where speeds are not excessive and acceleration can be smooth., however as any car with ICE these need to be driven 30+ or even 60 minutes at a time to get most out of it. If you drive them short town trips like 10-15min then even hybrids are not suitable, only full ev can be efficient in that type of journeys. My Auris fully loaded with passengers and luggage speeds over 75mph on motorways and air con on as outside temperatures were hot around 40c° and consumption was unbelievable low. , talking about hours of driving like that. Another example, now in colder weather I still get 50+ mpg, and I can get even more but because when not driving I keep the car ON for heating and electricity supply sometimes for many hours during the night. All in all more you drive your car more mpg you will get. Back in the days when was a cabbie in London driving in the night I very often got close or even better than the official figures for Prius .

Short 5 mile trip around town this time of year 40 to 45 mpg. 20 mile commute to work on 50 50 motorway town driving 55 to 60 mpg.

Thats in normal driving mode with climate set to 22 c in auto with aircon on.

I can add 5 to 10 mpg in summer

Yes 19 plate yaris icon tech hybrid new in October 19 serviced at 8000 miles in October 20 currently on 9000 miles. I don’t particularly drive it with economy in mind just drive normally  and let the car take care of itself.

On a long run in October I got 60.09mpg driving on motorway and A roads and with my right foot a little bit heavier than I normally drive. However in December driving as I usually drive which is using everything I know to get as much mpg as possible I only got 41.04mpg. Cold weather short hilly runs all those things contribute to low mpg.

This sounds convincing to me and making me believe that i am alone who gets low mpg in this time of the year

I have a 2015 Yaris Hybrid and have experienced the temperature related mpg variation but your figures still seem very low. The highest average I hit was 71.9, in the last 4-6 weeks since the weather turned it has been slowly dropping but I still show 70.7. 

Mainly local journeys with gentle driving. Very uncommon to exceed 60mph as there are no motorways in my region (Suffolk). I try to keep within the ECO sector on the ‘Rev counter’ and use ECO mode. AC use is fairly consistent, in summer to cool the car and in winter to demist. 

Double check your tyre pressures. I had my fronts replaced about three months ago (Continental EcoContacts) and my avg MPG started dropping almost immediately. I checked and the tyres were about 5psi below the Eco values I previously used. It really makes a big difference.

I follow the 1 year or 10,000 mile service intervals and use my local Toyota dealer. I intend to run the car to the end of its life so this will end up benefitting me. Their prices aren’t unreasonable either.

Superjohn,

Bring your Yaris Hybrid down to Devon and Cornwall ............. after the lock-down, that is! ................. and check your MPG after you've had a drive here.

We live in a valley and our house is at 200ft elevation.  Go west out of the valley and we climb to 1,000ft in a couple of miles.  Go east, and we climb to 500ft in a couple of miles.  Even after climbing out of the valley, the ups and downs of the hills are relentless.

Mick.

Drove to the local hospital this morning in temperatures below freezing so drove very carefully and checked MPG indicated on the in car display and it indicated 62 mpg. The journey 15 miles or so. I know this will not be as accurate as “full tank to full tank” but it’s an indication. Car is 2019 Yaris Hybrid Exel.

Surely this is just repeating your original query. 

You said previously that the car was last serviced 18months ago at 4,500 miles, and you were advised the car is overdue it's second service by 6 months. This service (due at either 2 years of age or 20,000 miles, whichever occurred first) would have been a Full service, and may help with your consumption issue.

So has the car been serviced recently??

8500 miles the engine isn't even run in, its still very tight, as above an Oil change is a must

12-15K miles the mpg will improve, As before mid 50's this time of year 90% being local short trips

Fuel economy is always low at this time of year.

Town driving (30-40 MPH) I get 45-55 computer MPG.

Last week I did 100 mile round-trip (yes, legal in the current situation!) and computer reported 61 MPG despite heater use and OAT of +3 deg. C.

Get it serviced!! Oil change AT A MINIMUM if you don't care about warranty (but I'd have it serviced properly if you want to ensure reliability).

What are the new LiIon Yaris seeing?? I want a test drive, but not at the moment!
