Gas mileage is an important factor for many when deciding what vehicle to drive. If you’re like us, you’re probably tired of spending time and money at the pump when you’d rather be driving on the open road. Switching to a more fuel-efficient vehicle will give you the freedom you want at a price you’ll love. When you visit our dealership near Normal, you’ll see that we have a variety of impressively fuel-efficient models to choose from, whether you’d prefer a car, SUV, or hybrid model. But, which ones are the most fuel-efficient? The Toyota cars with the best gas mileage are the 2022 Camry and Corolla, both available as gas or hybrid models. If you would prefer an SUV, check out the 2022 RAV4 or the first-ever Corolla Cross.
So, how exactly do these Toyota’s run so efficiently? They utilize smaller engines and innovative technology! A smaller engine needs less gas, so the sheer size of the engine makes a huge difference. Plus, the above models have engines that use direct fuel injection, a neat system that measures the fuel intake more precisely than conventional, old-school fuel-injection systems. Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (Dual VVT-i) also helps fuel efficiency by adapting to the vehicle’s real-time speed and load. Pretty cool systems!
For our overachievers, you can save even more on fuel efficiency when you shop our selection of hybrid and alternative fuel models. Can’t find the model you want? Contact us, and we’ll find it for you.
How to Be Fuel-Efficient
Here at Sam Leman Toyota Bloomington, we pride ourselves on offering the automotive guidance you need to go along with our strong selection of vehicles. From shopping tips to maintenance information, we make sure your ownership experience is smooth and enjoyable. With that aim in mind, our team is happy to offer insights on how to be more fuel-efficient behind the wheel. Adopting efficient habits is a great way to save time and money at the gas pump, even when driving a Toyota with strong mpg ratings. So, how can you be more fuel-efficient? Here are a few tips to save fuel:
- Accelerate softly: Giving your vehicle a few moments to accelerate from 0 mph to 10 mph will help conserve fuel.
- Plan ahead for traffic: Stop-and-go traffic is disastrous for your mpg. Try leaving before rush hour, or plan to take a different route.
- Avoid high speeds: On the highway, traveling between 55 mph and 65 mph is the best way to maximize efficiency.
- Coast to a stop: When stopping and starting, don’t overwork your vehicle. Use your momentum to coast to a stop.
- Minimize AC use: When you run the AC on full blast, you’ll actually increase fuel usage.
