I don't know as I see much difference in mpg yet with ECO mode turned on now, however the NAV "energy display" seems to indicate that the car is running on the battery more often.

I was inadvertently driving without the eco mode turned on for a long time and averaging better than 28 mpg, per Fuelly. Last week I realized this and turned it on. I'm interested to see if it makes...

The RX 450h does best mpg-wise after the ICE warms up. At which point, ironically sort of, it will shut down more readily at slow speeds and let the EV take over. Short trips are hell on mpg in a...

In other words, intelligent design, such as it might be in cars, is no substitute for intelligent driving.:agreed:

Bert,
Thanks for devoting so much time to replying to me. Coincidentally, I will be at the dealer this afternoon for a NAV update and I'll ask them about it then.

How smart is my Lexus?

I have seen references here to the RX 450h's ability to adjust to your personal driving style, to help you maximize your MPG. Can anybody explain it that's true and, if so, how the car does it?

StillLine, Can you get the Fuelly banners working right on this site? They're supposed to update on their own. Or do you just post a new link to your banner each time you add a "fuel-up"?

If you're getting 29 with ups and downs, you're doing very well. That's a big improvement over your 350's mpg. The dealer probably filled your tank with premium gas, which is what the owner's manual...

OK, how do you do it? I am averaging 28+ mpg and I can hit 30 mpg occasionally, but 36? Never. I now live in coastal California but I grew up in Chicago. I've always figured I could get better fuel...

Among other things, they performed a brake flush and refilled with new brake fluid and replaced the rear differential oil. Since the leak is at the rear, I'm guessing it's differential fluid.

My RX is leaking

I took my RX450h in for its 30K service last Wednesday. This morning, I noticed a big wet spot in our driveway as I was returning from an errand. It turns out I have a leak somewhere in the rear axle...

I am averaging 28.4 mpg after putting a bit over 14,000 miles on our 2010 RX450h since we bought it a year ago this past November (with under 15K on it). You're right; if you didn't try to keep up...

The "click" is gone!

As I've mentioned before, I'd planned to wait for the NX300h before upgrading from my '07 RAV4. But then I found this CPO RX450h with only 15,000 miles on it at a very fair price. It was just too...

I am presently averaging better than 28 mpg (measured at the pump) with our 2010 RX450h. I got 30.8 mpg on my last tank of gas -- with around 85% highway miles at 62-65 mph. I would probably be...

It happens after I've been driving at residential-street speeds for awhile, when I brake and when I accelerate away from lights or stop signs (starting from 0 mph). I'm guessing this has something to...
