My New Yaris after 1st service mpg Is less by 3 miles per gallon anyone notice this

There are a myriad of reasons for different mpg. How it is driven, colder temperatures, different journeys etc. But having it’s first service is not one of them.

Really? 3mpg?? It's probably just gotten colder or something! 3 mpg is nothing - I reset my average every fillup and there is a 5-6mpg variance across the tank depending on conditions, traffic, driving style etc.!

That said, if you aren't resetting the average, and this 3mpg drop is from your since-new average, it's probably dropped just from the dealer leaving the car on during servicing and it being stationary. According to my dash cam, they took mine for a spin round the block (Presumably to warm the engine up for the oil change because it was stone cold), and then after that it was sat for approx 1 and a half hours 'running' in the service bay before being driven to the cleaning booth.

I can change my car's fuel consumption by shorter journeys, driving faster/slower, driving in snow/rain/ice/sun etc. Or driving on different routes.

 

So the answer is variable and depends upon driving, let alone using the correct procedure to measure mpg.

As people have said, would suspect time running for service.

Our new Cross shows 76.2 l/100km or 3.7mpg for the day we collected it.

I drive exactly the same and it’s all in town I drive always with active cruise control set to road speed limits this has happened gradually since service and I don’t reset the average mpg

I noticed a big difference in fuel consumption, not after a service, but after a recall job.

It went down from "an indicated" 67mpg to the low 50's. This did coincide with  a big change

in the weather though.  Now it's not quite so cold, and I've put some air in the tyres, it's  gone

back up to about 60mpg.  Checking accurately on fuel fill up, Between the 19th Jan and 12th Feb

it's doing 55 mpg.  This is with all local stop start driving and no long runs.

Sounds about right. Wind, rain and cold affect the efficiency a lot. Sometimes when the averages consumption indicator has not been reset for a while it may show an old figure from earlier driving especially if the car been used on short trips, if the mileage counter has been reset for some reason like Battery disconnect when in service or recall may reset the dashboard counter too and then you get more accurate figures. 👍

We got our new Yaris in September and have since done 4719 miles recorded on fill to fill.

Up to the end of October we were averaging around 62mpg with a best tank of 66mpg, we now have a cumulative average of 58.7mpg with a lowest figure of 50.2mpg.  MyToyota is claiming 64.2mpg since new so that is about 10% optimistic.

In November we fitted Michelin Cross Climate 2 tyres to replace the Continental Eco factory tyres, granted that will have made a little difference, but year round grip overtook ultimate economy for us!!

The mileage over the last four fill ups seems to be pretty consistent at about 57mpg.

Although the indicate figure is  fairly steady at 61mpg.   We haven't taken it for any long

runs for a while.  Mostly local shopping trips.

    • 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.
