What is everyone getting on the highway? Just drove 200 miles on flat service (in Florida) with 38PSI in the tires all around and averaged 35MPG at 79MPH. The car is rated at 36MPG highway.

I thought it may get a little better. I recently drove a 2021 RAV 4 1000 miles on the highway and averaged 37.4MPG at apart 81MPG and I was super surprised with the MPG. I thought he small and lighter taos with the 1.5 would at least match the RAV.

Got 33 on a ~50 mile trip on pretty straight country roads with a 55mph speed limit, and a little bit in town to get there. I was probably around 57/58 most of the time. That's in a 4Motion.

33.6 mpg in 4motion @ average just under 80mph on 320 mile trips with some stop and go for construction. Same mpg doing the same trip twice.
