I have a 2007 Camry Hybrid
I have a 2007 Camry Hybrid with 61,000 miles on it. Here's my experience:
1) Used it for several years doing 80 to 100 mile daily commutes at "rolling slowdown" freeway speeds. Average was 37-38 mpg.
2) Short use of say 3 to 5 miles per day in cold weather

Here's my experience with a 2007 Camry Hybrid (Japan build) with 61,000 miles.
1) Used on long daily commutes of 80 to 100 miles RT at less than freeway speeds on hilly terrain gets you 37-38 mpg. 2 passengers. The car performs best on longer drives in warm weather.
2) Short 3-5 mile hops in cold weather get you 25 mpg or so. Not much better than a conventional vehicle.
3) After I changed out the low rolling resistance OEM tires to Bridgestones with good wet traction mileage dropped from 37/38 to 35. Those tires definitely make a difference.
4) Mileage will always be worse with more passengers in mountainous terrain. But a conventional vehicle's performance drops as well.
5)I've had Prius owners ride in the car and they always comment on the lower noise, more comfort and space and more solid feel.
6) Absolutely zero mechanical or electrical problems of any kind to date. In that respect it's the best I've ever had-except for all of those factory recalls!

Just recently (within the last couple of tanks) I've noticed my 07 Camry Hybrid is getting terrible gas mileage. The tank average for both recent tanks has been 22.2 - 23.4 mpg. What's going on here?
