Question How does you mileage compare to these?

Found this really interesting website called, "Fuelly" (click here) where you can track your mileage and see how it compares to others driving the same year and model. Take a look and see what you think.

21.6 mpg for a 2012 RAV4 is less than I expected, I get 24.4 but drive easy and with a light load. My dash gauge estimate is always at least 1 mpg more than actual consumption and I don't know why. I gas up mostly at the same station and always stop at the first click, then I divide the actual miles driven by the gallons pumped and it always stays around 24.4, however, it does get at least 1 mpg more in the summer months. Anyway, fuelly is a neat site, thanks for posting it!

Some of the listings don't include their engine size and I guess you sort of have to just guess, but it's hard to tell, except for city driving which I've found is quite a bit less for the V6 compared to the I4

Yes, I've used Fuelly and logged every mile since day 1 on the RAV.

Several folks here use Fuelly. I'm not one to give a damn how my mpg compares to someone else's but I do keep track of it. A big drop in mpg got me away from Valero fuel so keeping track can alert you to possible problems or poor quality fuel. I only fill up once a month so it's pretty easy to keep track of.
