I have a new 2012 Rav4 V6. Just have 3 fillups in the tank. Travelled 198 miles on 11.3 gallons = 17.5 miles; then traveled 182 miles on 12.2 gallons = 14.9 miles. I get MUCH better mileage in my 446 HP 331 stroker motor in my cobra than in the Rav4 to date. Virtuall all Miami city driving with AC. Expected a little better. My math was correct .. I simply had typed in the wrong number. So far averaging 15-18 miles. Haven't done any highway driving to check, but around town - in the cooler part of the year - it certainly isn't even approaching what my wife's CRV will do. And the V6 was reported to "be more efficient than the 4 cyl". Like the car - disappointed with the fuel economy.
