Is anyone else noticing a 2 mpg differential between the computer and reality?
Gary Tate: is your 49.8 mpg reality or what the computer said?
My 2013 Accord is about 2 miles higher onboard versus hand calculating... it seems to always be about 1.5-2.0 miles per gallon off. So its easy to adjust... plus putting the numbers into gastracker (fuelly) corrects it quickly.

Any more mileage updates?? Are we still seeing above 34 MPG? I know mileage improves in warmer weather and also after the break in period (1000 miles or so)

Like I said in a different thread, I achieved a 43.4 mpg, mostly freeway, easy on the peddle, averaging 70 mph. Touring.

I have a Touring as well with about 1500 miles on it. Last tank I achieved 44.1 actual (computer showed 46.2 MPG). 75% highway at 65 MPH.
Now if they could just my my sound system and Apple Carplay to work (3 times at dealer and still no idea from Honda how to fix it).

2016 Honda Civic Sedan Real World MPG Testing by TFL


Company stated MPG figures aren't always representative of what happens in the real world. That's why it's good to look into testing that is done by something other than the very company that is selling you the vehicle. So TFLCar has done its own testing to see if the EPA-estimated 31/42 city/highway figures hold up.

Spend 7 minutes watching their video review to see how things go.

I watched the video. I can tell you 2 things that took the mileage just below 40.

1) 75 miles per hour on the highway test. I believe the EPA does 65MPH. That would make a HUGE difference as most cars mileage really starts dropping off after 65MPH
2) Two people in the car. Does the EPA test put two people in the car? the extra 160lbs or so would affect mileage

as for the difference in mileage between pump and civic computer, its because the GPS speed and computer speed were off by 2MPH. This is most likely due to TIRE size issues since its determined by wheel spin.

Speed I think probably makes a difference, but not so convinced by the people in the car. Usually TFL tests in Colorado. I'm not sure if the elevation would come into play at all.

Elevation should make the milage higher since the air is thinner meaning less air resistance.
Same reason airplanes fly higher-saves a tremendous amount of fuel and increases the ground speed (assuming 0 wind conditions aloft).

my lowest reading since my purchase is 6L/100km (onboard computer) while doing pure highway
and my first refill at pump gave me 8L/100km (300km highway @110km/h + 200km city @50km/h)

I took 3 actual calculations and got
1)35mpg with snow tires

2)30mpg with snow tires

3) 38mpg with factory tires and rims

Car now has about 1400km on it (about 850 miles)
