I have made no modifications, yet get 40mpg tank after tank. 2013 HB LE, stickshift. Mostly it is driving style. Coast as much as you can. Downshift to brake, because when engine braking the fuel is shut off. I accelerate like a rabbit, working to get to 5th gear. I usually go from 3rd to 5th. Once in 5th I then drive with a light touch on the pedal.
If I am doing 100% highway speeds (+70mph) my mileage will not be as good. The Yaris loves country roads that go through hills, as long as you don't have to slow too much for curves.
I'm at 190K miles. No repairs. Just changed the rear brake shoes, the front pads are still fine.

Hi All. In reading the OP, and him saying he never goes over 2000rpm, my 2014 YRS at 65mph, the maximum speed limit in Australia is revving at 3100rpm. Is this normal or has my Yaris got a mechanical issue? I would suspect at 55 the revs won’t drop much and definitely not to 2000rpm? So downhill under brakes my Yaris downshifts (auto). Also have a 2012 Camry at the same speed is doing 2200rpm..
