    If its your check engine light, have it scanned for free at a place like AutoZone and post the code here. Your manual will show you what a check engine light looks like, or any other symbol your can has.

Did you have the vehicle scanned for codes?
If so what were the codes?
Gas cap has to be pressure tested. Looking fine is not gonna cut it.
If you didn't have the vehicle scanned go to Autozone they will do it free. Then get back to me and we will take it from there.

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003


One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

Where is location of fuel filter on 2006 camry ?


2005 Camry fuel filter is located in the gas tank and does not require servicing. It is supposed to last the life of the car. I have 200,000 miles on my older Camry(2005) and have only replaced the thermostat and gas cap. The toyota dealer told me to replace the evap can for $600 but I checked out online and only replaced the gas cap to resolve the evap code.

Fuel gauge on 2006 camry is below empty even though I'm sure there is more than 1/2 a tank og gas in it.


It is possible that the float guage in the tank has malfunctioned or a wire has come loose. I believe you can access this by removing a plate in the floor under the rear seat.

Engine light came on, gas cap was loose


Probably nothing wrong if the gas cap was loose. Sometimes it takes an odd combination of driving modes to reset the monitor. Toyota seems to have an especially fussy drive cycle for the evap system which includes the gas cap. Just keep driving it, it should go out soon.

Check engine light on at 90500 miles 2003 toyota camry is this just a reminder light for scheduled maint.?


Your check engine light usually means there is an issue with your emissions control system. The last time mine came on, I found that my gas cap wasn't on tight enough. I turned it on tightly and the light went off after 30 miles or so. Start there.
If you've tightened the cap and the light is still on after 30 miles, you may have a bad gas cap OR maybe you just got some bad gas at your last fill-up. Try a few gallons of high-test and drive it a while. If nothing changes, a new gas cap is probably the next cheapest option. Good luck.
