Are you Sure your gas gauge is working? Looked underneath for leaks? The top or sides of the tank could have holes (rust) with gas evaporating?

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

First have you checked the gas cap? is it on correctly ( 2 clicks at tight) is it a recent replacement? could be incorrect for your Rav. Second: Could some body be stealing the gas just to drive her nuts- thinking it was funny to see her struggle to get her mileage under control If all else (including docjkg's advice above); I would try an authorized Toyota mechanic, more costly perhaps, but they should know how to find and fix the problem which would be more economical in the end .

Hi did you ever fix your problem? My daughter has a 2004 Toyota Rav 4, and it is doing the same thing.
