Arrow rafa rav4 07

Hi to everybody!
This site is definately a blessing!!
I got the rav4 for thinking the epa 24 city, 30 highway, was true. When I started to pay attetion to it, I was doing 16 to 18 MPG. I felt ripped off and lied to. Anyway I started to work on it;

-Never go over 2000RPM, (only a couple of times)
-Coast to lights. Light on breaks and acceleration.
-Inflate tires to 36PSI,

And so far, it's helped up to 26 MPG. I fell a bit better But what else could I do without having to spend more money to improve FE??

Pretty good improvements so far...I'd say you should get a scanguage, which will pay for itself, instant feedback

Welcome to GS! I'm going to assume you have this Rav 4 because you said 24/30 EPA MPG :

2007 Toyota RAV4 2WD / Automatic (4 speed) / 4 Cylinders / 2.4 Liters
Attachment 1002

Based on the above, your are already moving your Rav 4 into "old school" EPA, which is pretty good.
