I am very interested in this
I am very interested in this as well- it seems if the batteries can power the car for up to 20 mph rather than 12, the car will have substantially better gas mileage. Please respond to this thread if anyone has insight!
I am the owner of a 07 Camry
I am the owner of a 07 Camry Hybrid. By and large am quite satisfied with the car, however it seems to me the car could get much better milage is it were to run on the battery more of the time. For instance: when backing out of the garage the engine will start up even if I have not pushed on the gas pedal; when cruising at a speed of, 35mph, one has to very gentle with the accelerator or the engine will start up. I know that everything is controlled by the computer and have talked to Toyota about the possibility of there being a problem with the computer or if changes could be made. Their response is that if no red lights are coming on then everything is as should be and that no changes can be made. It really seems strange that parameters on the computer could not be tweaked. Does anyone have any experience with this?
well I have an 08 camry and
well I have an 08 camry and i really love it, but I seem to be asking myself that if the standard camry get 30 mpg, then why did I spend another 8k on a hybrid?!?!?!?!?
there has to be something to do to get better gas milage on these damn things....
