what could be causing poor gas mileage in my '99 Camry LE?


Asked by Jun 06, 2012 at 04:44 PM about the 1999 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My '99 Camry LE used to get 25mpg city/ 29mpg hwy, when I first got it. About. 6 months
later, it suddenly dropped to 19mpg city/ 25 mpg hwy. No lights came on, and the car
operated just fine. I have had several mechanics look at it, including a Toyota dealer. They
cannot find anything that would contribute to this problem. I would love to know what it is so
I can fix it. At this point, I may just as well go back to an SUV with that kind of mileage.

Did you put new tires on in that 6 months?

As a matter of fact, I have. But....I had the mileage problem both before and after. New tires didn't seem to change anything.
