I was wondering what other people with automatics are averaging for fuel mileage. We have just finish our first tank and averaged only 25mpg.

I told my wife she needs to stop trying to race everyone from the stoplights and she promised to try since she has figured out she cant win!

How many miles can you guys go before you usually have to fill up? i the most i've gotten was about 285 when the light was on.

I drove it easy and got 32mpg on my first tank in city/freeway. (Auto)
At 2.3K miles now- average 32 mpg normal driving with AC on 50% of the time. Light goes on with 2 gallons left after about 300 miles.
I'm happy :)

there is no need to break-in your engine when you first get it, SCION(Toyota)
has already done this task for you at the factory. most people get better gas milage after a couple of tanks because they learn to drive the car better
with time. instead of trying to force the car to drive they become one with thier box and drive in hamony. this harmony then creates a zen-like ora around the car causing smooth acceleration and better gas milage...lol:D

I only get like 220 a tank, but then again I do have 18's with low pro tires and the a pretty big system in the back so that could have something to do with it, but if I do nothing but freeway I get like 245-250 miles a tank...

My Xb is a 2006 with automatic and I am on like my 6th tank in almost a month. First two where local, combined city/highway and got 32.2 mpg. Third was from Memphis to Nashville, TN with my 15 yr old son, myself and about 400 lbs of gear in the back, doing up to 85-90mph (could only acheive these speeds with the help of a downhill grade, max going up was 75 maybe) and got a little over 32 mpg. Fourth was Nashville city driving over 4 days and got 30 mpg. Fifth was coming back from Nashville with the same load as going up, but stayed at 70 mph and got 36.4 mpg and the Box is now at 1300 miles. Driving habits appear to be a big variable when it comes to gas mileage on this vehicle.

As your engine finishes its break in period, you should get more and more mpg. My first tank was about 25mpg. I was kinda dissappointed since I bought this car for its mpg. It slowly crept up after the next couple of months. After 3 months, I was averaging 34-37mpg.
