Toyota Camry 1997: What is the average fuel consumption?

Asked by Shiraj

The best fuel consumption I can get out of my 280,000 km 1997 V6 Toyota Camry is 11 L/100 km, the worst is 14.5 L/100 around Canberra. Is this ok for a car of this age? I have replaced the leads, fuel filter, plugs, distributor, rotor button, high-flow cat converter, rear muffler and also have a power chip piggyback ECU.

The consumption is higher than I would expect. When new Toyota was claiming 11.0 L/100 km in city driving and 8.0 or so on the highway, but after 280,000 km you could expect it to have worn a little and the compression would be down, so you would anticipate that you wouldn't be getting close to the new figures. Even so your consumption does seem too high.
