2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid – Fuel Economy MPG Review and Fill Up Costs

We test drove the Toyota Corolla Hybrid Fuel Economy. The model we drove was equipped with a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Our model had a power output of 121hp @ 5,200rpm and 105lb-ft @ 3,600rpm.

Toyota Corolla Hybrid Highway Fuel Economy

We drove the Corolla Hybrid for approximately 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) in order to test its highway fuel economy. In our highway fuel economy test, the Corolla achieved 3.6 liters per 100km or 65mpg. This means on every liter of fuel, you can get 27.6 kilometers of highway driving.

Post-Drive Calculations

In this section, we take our total mileage done throughout our test, and calculate it against our fuel fill up quantity and cost. At the end of the test, we had driven a total of 449km (279 miles). We had a half tank of fuel left. We did 40% of our driving in the city and 60% on the highway.

Fuel Cost

We spent $18.57 (CAD) to fill up 19.1 liters of fuel at a fuel cost of $0.969/liter. If we were to fill up in Detroit, we would spend $9 (USD) to fill up 5 gallons of fuel at $1.80/gallon.

Toyota Corolla Hybrid Fuel Tank Capacity

The Corolla Hybrid has a fuel tank capacity of 43 liters or 11 gallons.

Distance Per Liter/Gallon

Kilometers Per Liter: The Corolla achieved 23.5km/L, meaning every liter of fuel gives 23.5 kilometers of driving.

Miles Per Gallon: The Corolla Hybrid achieved 55MPG, which means every gallon of fuel gives 55 miles of driving.

Liters Per 100 kilometers: The Corolla Hybrid achieves 4.2L/100km, which means it takes 4.2 liters to drive 100 kilometers.

Actual Fuel Range

Actual Fuel Range is calculated by taking the aforementioned Distance Per Liter (23.5km/L) and multiplying it by the fuel tank capacity (43 liters). On a full tank of fuel, based on our driving, you can expect 1,010km or 628 miles of driving.

Cost Per Kilometer

To calculate the Cost Per Kilometer, we will divide the total fuel cost against the total distance driven. Our calculations show that every kilometer in the Corolla Hybrid costs $0.04 (CAD) in Toronto and $0.03 (USD) in Detroit.

Cost of a Full Tank

To calculate the Cost of a Full Tank, we will multiply the local fuel price against the fuel tank capacity. Our calculations show it costs $41.67 (CAD) to fill up in Toronto, and $19.80 (USD) to fill up in Detroit, USA.

2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid – Fuel Economy MPG Review and Fill Up Costs

We test drove the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Fuel Economy. The model we drove was equipped with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Our model was equipped with an all-wheel drive system, and had a power output of 219hp.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Highway Fuel Economy

We drove the RAV4 Hybrid for approximately 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) in order to test its highway fuel economy. In our highway fuel economy test, the RAV4 achieved 5.2 liters per 100km or 45mpg. This means on every liter of fuel, you can get 19.2 kilometers of highway driving.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid City Fuel Economy

We drove the RAV4 Hybrid for approximately 8 kilometers (12.4 miles) in order to test its highway fuel economy. In our highway fuel economy test, the RAV4 achieved 4.0 liters per 100km or 59mpg. This means on every liter of fuel, you can get 25 kilometers of city driving.

Post-Drive Calculations

In this section, we take our total mileage done throughout our test, and calculate it against our fuel fill up quantity and cost. At the end of the test, we had driven a total of 508km (316 miles). We had less than half tank of fuel left. We did 60% of our driving in the city and 40% on the highway.

Fuel Cost

We spent $21.35 (CAD) to fill up 22 liters of fuel at a fuel cost of $0.0969/liter. If we were to fill up in Detroit, we would spend $10.44 (USD) to fill up 5.8 gallons of fuel at $1.80/gallon.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Fuel Tank Capacity

The RAV4 Hybrid has a fuel tank capacity of 55 liters or 14.5 gallons.

Distance Per Liter/Gallon

Kilometers Per Liter: The RAV4 achieved 23km/L, meaning every liter of fuel gives 23 kilometers of driving.

Miles Per Gallon: The RAV4 Hybrid achieved 54MPG, which means every gallon of fuel gives 54 miles of driving.

Liters Per 100 kilometers: The RAV4 Hybrid achieves 4.3L/100km, which means it takes 4.3 liters to drive 100 kilometers.

Actual Fuel Range

Actual Fuel Range is calculated by taking the aforementioned Distance Per Liter (23km/L) and multiplying it by the fuel tank capacity (55 liters). On a full tank of fuel, based on our driving, you can expect 1,265km or 786 miles of driving.

Cost Per Kilometer

To calculate the Cost Per Kilometer, we will divide the total fuel cost against the total distance driven. Our calculations show that every kilometer in the RAV4 Hybrid costs $0.04 (CAD) in Toronto and$0.03 (USD) in Detroit.

Cost of a Full Tank

To calculate the Cost of a Full Tank, we will multiply the local fuel price against the fuel tank capacity. Our calculations show it costs $53.29 (CAD) to fill up in Toronto, and $26.10 (USD) to fill up in Detroit, USA.

2016 Toyota Camry – Fuel Economy Review

In this episode, we test out the all-new Toyota Camry SE. Although this model comes equipped with sporty styling cues, the engine remains the same 2.4-liter engine found in the base model.

The engine felt more than sufficient, while delivering decent fuel economy in this class. The Camry was able to do 275km on half a tank of gas and achieve a fuel economy of 10.8L/100km.

Filling up cost us $33 to refill the half tank we used, so expect to pay $66 for a full tank at a fuel cost of $1/liter. Since we were able to drive 275km for $33, the cost-per-kilometer is $0.12.
