Oddly enough I checked my mileage yesterday in my round trip from RI to NH and back. About 130 miles each way. On the way up I had the rear windows cracked and the sunroof open and I was averaging about 28 mpg. Then on the way back with the A/C on and windows closed, I was about 27 mpg. The temperature coming back was about 92 F compared to about 80 F going up.
On average for all driving (highway and city) I get around 23-24. 4WD 2.5L.
I have a 2004 XLT V6 4X4 and on highway Ive seen as much as 26-27mpg. That time I drove from Syracuse,NY to Boston, MA, 85% hwy at 65mph and 15% stop and go in the Boston area. So I get 21mpg with my everyday drive to and from work, which I would say is a mixed drive, all back roads at 40mph, and 1-3miles between stops, over a 26mile drive to work.
Either my driving style has changed or there is a significant difference in the Summer/Winter mixes. I go from ~400 mi/tank in the winter to ~425 mi/tank. I've calculated a few tanks at an average between 30-31 mpg. I have a 2.3L 5spd Manual and drive 90% highway with little to no traffic.
All hand calculated and never topping off the tank :
I'm averaging between 10 and 10.5L/100km (or about 22-24mpg US) in mixed driving with 17,000km on it. Normal driving, not feathering the gas but not blasting from lights (although this V6 goes like a bat out of Hades if you really nail it). I typically get about 500km to a tank in mixed driving and put anywhere from 50-53L in it at that mark, so it isn't even empty at 500km.
On the highway I can get it a hair below 8.0L/100km if I keep it to 110km/h, but consumption goes up quite considerably once you push past 120km/h (about 72mph) cruising speed. 09 3.0L 4WD. Doesn;t seem to make a difference if it is V6 or 4 cyl for MPGs in these things so I went for the V6. I run Petro-Can, Esso, Shell or Pioneer 87 Octane and it really doesn't seem to matter whose gas I use
FYI, it Loses about 10% in cold weather vs warm but that's probably cold starts and winter gas as my wife's Mercedes running premium fuel is about the same. AC on or off, doesn't seem to make much of a difference
All in all I am very impressed - about the same as my old 4cyl 2.0L 99 CRV AWD got and about 30% better than the Honda Odyssey this replaced.
Hello i get about 420-430KM per tank, 26Km/g (+/- 16mi/g) in the city, mostly all my driving is in the city.
I got 33km/g (+/- 21mi/g) in a trip (1000mi), almost all the time between 120-140km/h ( 75-88Mi/h), however that was with the Cargo Bag on top of the Roof Rack, so i guess is not usefull for comparison purposes..
mine is a 3.0 4wd, 6 spd
