Obviously mileage will vary, but the last four days of driving the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE Sedan have been nothing short of an mpg miracle. (Ok, maybe I oversell, but I really don’t like buying gasoline.)
Officially Toyota’s latest version of its venerable best seller is rated at 40 city and 38 highway, but my short repeated trips lifestyle (translation: boring) has me closer to 50 mpgs for the most part. Dropping the kids off at school is about a 4-mile rounder, the gym is about 5 miles (notice how I threw in that go to the gym), the grocery store 5 miles, etc.
I did take the blue crush metallic fuel-sipper across town soon after it arrived in my driveway and had tallied up around 80+ miles on the odometer when I clicked this photo with my cell phone yesterday. I honestly think the gauge was traveling to the right instead of the left for a while.
After another 40 miles trip yesterday it is now just to the left of the “full” mark, but not enough that I have stopped considering whether a neighbor is playing tricks on me and filling the tank while I’m asleep.
