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.
