2008 Toyota RAV4 Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2009 4dr SUV 179-horsepower 2.5L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
Amazing for an SUV - First 2 weeks we had it, went on 2 trips over 200 miles each mostly highway. Got over 27 MPG. There are some 4 cyl CARS that do not get that, let alone an SUV. We are saving $50/month just on gas compared to the minivan we traded in see full Toyota RAV4 review

Previously owned a 1997 6 cyl Toyota 4 Runner Limited. That was a vehicle which I was proud and happy to drive but because gas prices started to rise, I wanted something that gave more than 17 mpg. My 6 cyl RAV gives 22 mpg. see full Toyota RAV4 review
