Default 2013 Camry Hybrid XLE low city mpg

  • Hello everyone! My name's Renee.
  • I recently bought a used 2013 Camry XLE Hybrid with 50,000 miles on it from Toyota.
  • I noticed it was getting low mpg in the city 31-32 but on roadtrips it gets 38-39 mpg. Is this normal? I thought it was supposed to be the other way around?
  • I took it in for a checkup and they said it's fine and nothing they can do. I researched and use driving techniques I learned but it only seems to be getting worse...
  • Any suggestions?

If you run AC non-stop and get stuck in heavy traffic often, that could kill your mpg. Without AC, in moving city traffic I get 38-40 in my 07 (so should you). Get stuck in massive traffic jams, run AC non stop and I'll also will struggle to get 32-33 mpg. But that's still much better than 14-16 mpg my wife gets on her Santa Fe, but that's another story. Actually 38-39 mpg on highway is not that impressive unless you drive way over 70mph. Around my place speed limit is 55, I drive around 70 max and get 41-42 mpg. Only if push 80 mph or more, would I stay in 38 mpg range. Anyway I would do the usual: change oil, make sure tire pressure little overinflated 35 PSI, maybe add injector cleaner etc.

Thank you for your reply.
It was bad before I started using the AC and even worse now that I do use it.
