Again, I have no explanation why, but just filled up our V6 this morning. The wife did a week of commuting five miles each way to work, either uphill or downhill all the way, with more than a dozen traffic lights and lots of traffic. Our weather has hovered in the 30's all day, and it takes her 20 minutes or more to make the commute home. We got just over 20 MPG, and my wife is usually leading the pack out of the blocks.
It really would be interesting to get a couple of Ravs together, one that gets good mileage and one that gets bad mileage, and see if there are any differences.
I just went out to look at the average MPG meter. After filling up, I took three people and luggage on a 50 mile round trip to the airport, then did another 40 mile round trip mostly freeway to see my mom. Right now, it says 28.9 MPG.
Anyone in the Seattle/Bellevue/Redmond area with a V6 and get what they would consider poor mileage?
