FUEL GUZZLING

Recommended Posts

hI I really need help working this out....my 2004 camry sportivo suddenly started using massive quantities of fuel yesterday, five eights of a tank for just 20 /30 kms around town. No obvious fuel leaks, no black exhaust or fumes, no hard driving....is intermittently running rough and surging, feels ike driving with choke fully on ( even though no manual choke) Any suggestions would really be appreciated in an effort to save the looming hundreds it will cost if I take it to Toyota etc

What does the L/100km reading say?

I still can't understand why my car reading after attaining 11.3L/100km remain so no matter where i drive and how i drive.

Very high fuel consumption and/or faulty (?) fuel consumption trip computer readouts seems relatively common complaints with Camry. Anyone have experience with other cars to comment on whether this is a common affliction with other makes too?

I bought the Camry intending it to be mechanically sound for at least 5 years, but probably 7-10 years.

Same with most cars RE: Trip computers. Look at the Top Gear tests where they drive the cars to Blackpool to switch the lights on. Traveled much further than the trip computers suggested.

My Gen5 V6 Camry, my brother's VE Senator and my mums 08 GS460 does the same thing.

Manually calculate your L/km. While not perfect, it's far more accurate than the trip computer. My last 3 tanks have been 12.9/13.2/13.1 L/100km while the trip computer gave me an average that ranged from 14.8L to 15.3L.
