Any chance of changing your route to be more rpm friendly until you can swap it?

Filled up the Yaris this morning and I was very pleased with my tank average of 5.1l/100km or 46mpg US.
I've just been coasting when I can and about a quarter of the way into the tank, I inflated the tires to 40psi.
Next week I'm gonna change to AMS oil synthetic.
Ordered my Scangauge last week, but the shipping takes forever to get through Canadian customs.
Next goal is to break into the 4's ( litres per 100km that is...)
hey Frink, i'd really wish i could get such great numbers with my yaris, i just filled the tank yesterday and only got 35.5 mpg, although that is mostly city driving.
it was a bit discouraging because my mileage went down from my last tank, despite using the same driving style.
the best numbers i have ever achieved with the yaris was this past summer, about 42 mpg on tanks that were almost completely highway driving.

are you driving mostly highway?

Unfortunately, I'm already staying on rural county roads at least 90% of the time. I just got back from a practice run that was about 5.3 miles long and pulled off a 64.8 mpg with the new car. This was the first run with the EFIE hooked up. The EFIE is currently set at about .325 volts. If I go any higher the idle starts to get a bit rough. For my pulse and glide(engine off on the glide portion) I stayed in 5th and went between 25 and 35. The gearing is so low that I can cruise in 5th at 20 mph when the road is level and can even accelerate lightly. Even though the head was milled .050", with the grooves and Power Lynz in the intake ports, I have absolutely no pinging on 87 octane gas when accelerating under heavy loads.

Got to do a little more driving today. 62.5 miles with a 67.71 average. Best segment was 82.3 MPG for 18.6 miles. I don't know how these guy are turning over 100 MPG segments . I know it can be done so it gives me something to work for

Went over to visit my brother in Durham, NC. Drove I-26 to Asheville, I-40 to Durham and returned via I-84 to Greenville. Drove at the speed limit for the most part (60 and 65mph on I-26, 65 and 70mph on I-40, 60,65, and 70mph on I-85). When I gassed up (at $1.98/gal), I calculated 66 mpg for the trip, not bad for interstate driving.

Got to drive around in my friend Prius today and when I went over the Newport Bridge and regened down the back side to the toll booth the battery got full and the regen braking stopped working resulting in the car no longer decelerating just as I was tossing the token in the basket. Talk about a weird feeling. Definately a weird driving gas pedal.

Best segment was 67.1mpg - 54.0 - 59.4 Oil change made a difference plus I added some Slick50 to the oil - couldn't get the freeking oil filter off need a wrench - can't get my fingers around the filter where they mounted it to turn it - what a pain! Have to get a really small wrench and get it next time.

I've also done my best to try and pick a route with the fewest stops.
Mine is a 5sp with around 23,000km. Tires are at 40psi cold.
I found the milelage really improved after 10,000km or so...

yeah, mines at about 16,000km and i have noticed a gradual overall improvement as well,
mine is a 5spd too, but my tires are not at 40 psi. i've been a bit hesitant to add more pressure than what the car manufacturer recommends for this vehicle.
it is probably the fact that most of my driving is short trips in the city, i can't avoid stops and lights-they surround my house in every direction, i do plan the easiest route, but the difference would be negligable.

Well I took another step towards my goal. I just made my weekly fillup; I drove 223.5 miles on 5.87 gallons, all congested city driving to work and school and back home. I cant believe I broke 38 mpg this fast; the first two times I took this car on the highway I got a hair under 37.
