  1. 4.3 Mechanical
    I recently acquired an 08 gen 3 with the 4cylinder/AWD from a family member, i drove the vehicle for about 10k miles and hit 200k miles. I've fixed alot of little issues including valve cover gasket, intake manifold gasket, trans fluid, coolant, water pump. Vehicle only had a fault for a misfire...
  2. 4.5 General
    When I first got my 2021 RAV4 LE it was new from the lot with only 10miles and they added a full tank of gas (maxed 400miles to empty). For a few months it's always been 405-390 in distance to empty, however this past May, I noticed that my distance to empty only maxed out to 370miles (full tank...
  3. 4.4 Mechanical
    We just bought a 2018 RAV4 Hybrid. The owner's manual says to use "...an Octane Rating of 87 (Research Octane Number 91) or higher." I don't understand what the part in the parenthesis means. Can someone explain it to me, please? The Car Care Nut said to use the same brand of fuel with the same...
  4. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    I’ve had my 2021 RAV4 Hybrid for about a week now (was built in October). A little gas has been put in twice due to trips but today was the first time I’ve filled it up. Know not to overfill due to the emission system, so stopped as soon as the pump clicked. However, when I got in my RAV, the...

  6. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    I've been hypermiling (or attempting to, anyways) since I got this car in November last year. I was averaging about 38 MPG. Last month, I reset my MPG meter and decided to stop caring about fuel economy. Hypermiling is a lot of work and I'd rather not care, even if it costs me a few MPG. So I...
  7. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    Am curious how well our fuel gauges are calibrated. The manual says that the low fuel light comes on at 2.2gal. I suspect that for many the gauge is very conservative. Ignoring the DTE or Distance to Empty, how many miles have you driven, or how many gallons have you used after the low fuel...
  8. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    Hello. I am new to the Rav4 family. I just purchased a 2014 Rav4 XSE Hybrid and love it. I am almost at 400 miles. My fuel gauge was almost at empty ( not quite for warning light to go on) until this afternoon.. When I started my car again recently , now the fuel gauge says there is a little...
