If you drive on the highway a lot, the MPG rating is just an average rating.My girlfriend has a Toyota Camry Solara that does the same thing. We will be driving on the highway for 15-20 minutes and the average mpg reads 33.7 mpg.Then we will start driving in the city for 20 minutes and it reads 33.4 mpg. If her big car gets 33 mpg in the city then Toyota is better than we thought!!Needless to say it does not get 33 mpg in the city, if someone were to do the math (which a lot of people for some reason dont!!) you will see she averaged 28.1 mpg with both city and highway driving. 5 mpg lower than what it said.Its funny how people don't do the math...I got 41 mpg in my Buick Lacross!!!!No you didn't, you are just retarded. It's backwords, you really got 14 mpg...

It's just an average. If you want to know what you are getting right then you need an Instant Economy mode. Or you can reset your average economy when you switch from highway to city and city to highway driving.

get a grip and have a thought...averages are what the car's get...not what YOU get...some people have heavy feet and sometimes the heat of summer traffic will eat your gas...

The average MPG rating is what you achieve over time, so try resetting it and it should calculate your most current fuel economy. Hope that helps
