With a growing number of owners reporting city and highway gas mileage numbers throughout the forum, keeping those numbers organized and easy to find can go a long way in benefiting the entire 10th Civic community (not just this forum).

So, use this thread to report and discuss your numbers, what possibly impacted or improved it (ex. driving habits, mileage), best practices, etc. You can even select your average MPG on the poll above.

This is the lowest number I have ever got from trip computer (99% highway, constant speed, 17" tire pressure checked)
Usually is more like 5.8L/100KM
And I do actually get 5.8 - 6L/100KM at the pump.

The worst mileage I have ever got (mostly city) is around 9L/100km

MPG in the 40's are impressive and so far are either in the lead or tied with some of the next best mileage groups. Hopefully that trend continues with the more owners that report in here.

Not bad but how bad is the city driving you have to do? a lot of stop and go? or are you able to roll slow enough while waiting for traffic to pick up again?
Usually I find little things like that go a long way.

Keep us posted on how your MPG's change if they do.

In 2300 miles of driving, mostly city (going by lifetime average speed of 26-27 mph), EX-T, I'm running 32.6 actual and 32.9 indicated. I'm OK with this considering my 2014 Sonic got 25-26 mpg under the same conditions.

I'm going to record my MPG post Flash Pro.After a 100 mile trip my MPG on I-35 north to Des Moines from southern Iowa at 70 mph is 35 MPG.Not too shabby IMO since my car has been tuned to HP/TQ numbers equal to or greater than Flash Pro plus 6 boost high octane tune.I will also include numbers at a 60 mile country Hwy trip at 55 MPH at 38 MPG.Overall though I'm not to concerned since my daily drive is less then 10 miles.I also have two tunes a 91 octane and 87 octane in which I presently am running a 87.

2017 Turbo Hatch LX

After getting gas and driving home a few miles at 40 MPH I typically show 50 MPG. On a highway trip I get 43 MPG.


It's all the cold starts this winter that's hurting what our MPG could be. I also mounted snow tires the week I bought the car, so that also cuts into the MPG I have experienced.


All things considered, quite impressive for a car with this much spunk.

Looking back at this poll well after I created it, I hope there were more votes since right now the numbers are ranging too much, 5 is the highest these are getting and there`s a lot of 4s and 5s.

The picture is an example of the increased MPG we are experiencing, which is in the process of raising our average above the poll response. We drive the legal speed limit.

2016 Civic EX sedan cvt

On a recent trip of 590 miles with mostly interstate driving using the cruise control set at a mile or two above the posted speed limit (anywhere from 55 to 70 with mostly 70) my mileage computer ranged from 46.0 to a high of 48.2.............I didn't check that versus actual gas used. Around home I get anywhere from 39.0 to 42.0 mpg. I've noticed the outside temperature significantly affects my mpg, the hotter the better. Approximately 20k miles on the car.
