    I have driven a 2009 camry and the mileage in stop and go traffic is about 8 km per litre. In a mix of city and highway you can get about 11 km per litre and in highway with cruise control you will get about 14-15 km per litre. Like stig mentioned a lot has to do based on your driving style. I started driving like an old granny with very light acceleration and cruising around highways at 90 km per hour, and I have been able to increase the mileage by about 25% compared with an earlier slightly aggressive driving style.

    @Javier M, @Emil, @Nikhil, @Pwn, @Jocreative, @Maxiben welcome to Carnity Offroad Club. For those who would be venturing into the desert for the first time, there is a nice writeup posted by one of the Carnity offroad experts on what you can expect in the desert. If you already have a Radio (walkie talkie) please charge it fully and bring it, as it will be your best friend during your offroad venture. A shovel, flag, deflator and tire gauge would also be very useful for the first drive.

    Love to listen to Eagles (Hell Freezes Over), Phill Collins and some nice melodious Hindi Songs. Never been a fan of thumping music even during an adrenaline drive. Need some nice soothing music while enjoying the tranquility of the desert.

  11. The end of the driveshaft which broke was not just having a u-joint. It was having a ball joint as well and I checked that part up in the spare part market in Sharjah, they said that they dont keep the mopar part in stock. Am i still missing something?
