Toyota Avalon Hybrid Poor Fuel Economy FIXED
 
My 2016 Avalon Hybrid Limited averaged 32-35 mpg since I bought it. I kept taking it to the dealership complaining about poor fuel economy (my 2013 Avalon Hybrid Limited got 40 mpg always) but Toyota kept telling me there was nothing wrong with it. If I put the car in the Sport Mode rather than the ECO mode, I got substantially BETTER fuel economy! Not the expected result! The dealer even sent data to Toyota engineers with the same result, nothing wrong! Finally, after 2 years, I asked them to reset the computer that runs the hybrid synergy system. They did it and now I am getting 42 mpg in the ECO mode. Same car!

You leave out way to many meaningful factors in your posting.

1) How many miles on your car ?
2) Are you referring to Highway MPG, City MPG or Mixed driving MPGs ?

Give us details to help you.

Dealer resetting the computer sorted the problem. Post was to help others with the same problem.

I regret to report that the improvement in fuel economy was short lived. Within 5 days, my 2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited went back to 32 mpg (CITY) in the ECO mode. Sport mode is still achieving about 39 to 40 mpg (CITY). I am back contacting the dealership.

HERE IS A PHOTO OF THE AVERAGE FUEL ECONOMY SCREEN. I reset the computer last night (on my own) and drove a 5 mile roundtrip this morning. Back to 32-33 mpg (CITY) in the ECO mode.

Have you actually measured the fuel consumption properly? These on board computer readings are famously inaccurate, and can either overestimate or underestimate actual fuel economy.

Yes, i calculate the fuel economy every fill up and compare to the displayed value
