You have 39 MPG as a towing figure. Are you sure of this?

 

John.

Never ask a man if he comes from Yorkshire. If he does, he'll tell you. If he doesn't, why humiliate him?

I have a 2007 model, and agree they are great towcars. I don't find that I get the same mpg as you though. Towing, a very respectable 29 mpg and solo around the 40 mpg. Never been near the 50 mark. Has yours been re-engined ? or like me are you keeping those fingers crossed that yours won't suffer from the dreaded issues this model had 2006-2009. I really love mine, had it 4 years now, even better with retro fit cruise control great when towing abroad on motorways.

love our xtr tows our little freedom no bother as you would expect, just home after a 200mile tow each way, brim to brim top up worked out at 34 mpg both ways, solo often well into the 40mpg, ours is a 2008 model wich we bought in 2012 with 16000 miles on clock, @ 21000 it was using excess oil, found out it had had a rebuild @11000 now with toyota 3/4 engine fitted we have covered 37000, but I still keep an eye on coolant and oil levels, our car was a Chelsea trackter, short cold trips before we got it, not ideal for a diesel.

Love my Rav4 but only hit over 40mpg on long runs not towing. Days to day driving I get 39mpg.

Not sure how anyone gets over 45mpg.

Haven't towed with it yet.

I echo what the others have said, I love this car. If looking at a 2006 to 2009 model then you must check that the engine has had the 3/4 engine change done under warranty. Had mine done at 45,000 miles and has done another 60,000 since done and has been faultless. I did a solo run to Eastbourne about 80 mile round trip and the OBC showed 50. 2 MPG. When towing my caravan the OBC shows between 28-32 MPG depending on the wind. I have been to France every year I have owned this car and that has been 7 years now and it has been faultless. (OBC on board computer.)
