Hey all, I've been averaging 40mpg+ since I bought 2020 civic sedan sport 6speed mt. Is my mileage going to decrease as the vehicle gets more mileage? First new car I've ever had, I got about 3000 miles on it so far. I do shift to neutral going downhills a bunch. Then back into gear once car has decelerated below flow of traffic. So my question is, is the $ I save on gas going to add up to enough as I might be using the clutch and brakes a little bit more than leaving the car in gear.

Your mileage should remain about the same with age as long as the car is running right. I have a 2018 EX-T (1.5 L turbo, 6 speed MT) and I consistently get 42 to 45 mpg on long trips/highway driving, dropping to 37 or 38 when it's mostly city driving. I also coast at times in neutral and downshift to supplement braking to slow down. My last MT Honda had 120,000 miles when I traded it in with the original clutch and back brakes, new pads on the front brakes at about 100,000 miles. You're going to do just fine with your driving approach.

Sweet thank you for the information.

Depending on what part of the world you live in, I've found that the mileage goes down a bit in cold weather, but rebounds when it warms up again.

My first road trip in my 2017 Civic Si was in September, from Missouri to Florida and back. At more than legal speeds with over 40,000 miles on the car so far (and on the original Goodyears) I averaged 42.p mpg. Among other cars I've owned a 1979 Mustang 2.3l turbo, two 1983 VW GTIs, and 2002 Ford Thunderbird. The Si is the fastest and the most efficient car I have ever owned. So much for the "good old days."
