My 2008 RX AWD got 28 mpg at 45 mph around Yellowstone NP. Realistically, it consistently gets 17 mpg. It all depends on driving habits. If you have to worry about mpg maybe a different car would be in order.

P.S. That is about what my 2010 Tundra gets as well.

in FL, I use AC rarely as it's pretty cool just having front window freeze = I get 20-22 in mixed driving now. Not a hybrid of course.

I have had my 2010 RX350 for a little over a month now. Approx. 60% of my driving is highway. Overall I am averaging 19 mpg with 22-23 mpg on my trips at 70 mph.

Today i got 24.5 mpg in my 2010AWD RX 350 from Victorville to Bishop, 202 miles and 8.4 Gal gas. Just over 1000 miles on it total.

Here's a couple more data points. We got 27 mpg on a recent trip from IL to MA on premium, driving about 70 mph(15000 miles on 2010 RX350 AWD). On the way back we tried 87 octane and got 24 mpg. The RX's mpg calculator did a good job of matching our manual calculations of miles/gallons. This amounted to roughly a 10% difference in mpg and roughly 10% difference in the cost of fuel. Our conclusion: Might as well use premium!
