    what do u mean by 50% thermostat on ac? do u keep running ac with temperature knob in the middle? it means that hot and cold air is being mixed and compressor is running 100% of time.
    in summer always keep hot/cold selector at coldest (the most blue) point. and keep fan speed at lowest and when cooling becomes painful simply turn of fan atall

    i dont think you have any manually controlled thermostat option in ur car

    the knob with cold hot option has nothing to do with thermostat. its just hot/cold air selector

    Man you should never keep the thermostate in the middle always keep it at coldest point in summer. because compresser is on all the times it never trips and with the temperature knob in the middle you also put on the heater and the hot and cold air are being mixed. this does not save fuel rather it will make consumption even a little more worse i think you should simply turn off ac for sometime when cooling is annoying you and then turn it back on.
    and yes change the place you go for fueling that really helps too. and LIGHT FOOT is v v v important in getting a good consumption
    and yes i agree with

    Get the car properly tuned via computer and make sure they clean the plugs, service the throttle body and put in a Toyota OEM (Japan) Air Filter. If possible, go for the K&N OEM Replacement filter. Rest 12.4 KMPL is not bad an average considering the fact that the vehicle was loaded with luggage and occupants, AC used. SO relax, nothing drastically wrong here.
    Oh and by the way, you wont get 16.0 KMPL average with that model, no matter what.
