My wife and I both drive with a lead foot (80 mph average on highway or more) and this car still averaged 24 mpg the whole time under our ownership (38,000 miles) according to the computer. Real world mpg readings by myself supported that figure as well. see full Toyota RAV4 review
2012 Toyota RAV4 Real Gas Mileage: Cons

I've only been driving in heavy traffic and urban cycle, but so far the computer calculates that the car is a complete pig - 16 MPG average with the auto temp on (so AC running). My FR-S easily handles the same in the mid-20s. Maybe less idling / crawling / jackrabbit starting and I'll get the average up. After 3 days and more "normal" driving (some highway in there), I hit low 20s (if the calculator was right - it could be 2 MPG optimistic like the one in my FR-S). see full Toyota RAV4 review
