Toyota Corolla Real World MPG



  • I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla that is (really) well maintained. Has 105K miles on the Odometer and I decided to do a "Highway only" mpg test to see the theoretical max I can achieve. I limited my max speed to 60 mph, mostly drove on cruise, rarely ever used the brake (anticipatory), used the A/C about 50% of the time, and if I went up a slope, then I coasted down in neutral (only to cancel slope effect), and drove a total of 387 miles before I refilled to full tank to get the exact fuel consumption. I filled only 7.89 gal (fuel spit-back, no excess) that netted me 49 miles/gal !! Is that even possible ?

    I am going to do it again to confirm. Any insights into making my test better ?

    thx in advance.
