For those posting mileage, you have to fill up. Set trip odometer to zero. Then the next time you fill, you list the litres used, along with what your trip odometer says.

It's pointless to say things like "200+ kms on half full 40l tank".

That's about 7.8L/100km. I'm get that in my RSX. I would have expected the 1.8L to be more fuel efficient than that...

Perhaps your O2 sensor needs replacing.

2002 Honda Civic Sedan, 40L - 400km-450km. I usually fill up before the light goes off, so there could be fluctuation. All estimates anyways.

^ you should record the amount you fill up with along with the distance travelled. then, calculate the numbers.

i have a month new 2009 civic sport and we barely, just barley get 380-400km for a full tank, which is about 50L tank. is this okay for a new car? it's automatic transmission, and we drove it during cold cold weathers which might take more fuel for engine to warm up, and with all the heating it's doing. any input? also, pretty much 95% city driving and i can only think of knight street bridge guzzling the gas away as that freeway seems to eat gas. is this normal? thanks.


I also have an 09 Civic, LX-SR coupe automatic and I just barely get 350=170 KMS to a 50 L tank of 100% city driving. My car has 2300 kms. Is this normal?
About how many kms do you need on your car before you pass the "break-in" point?

has anyone re-calculated their fuel economy now that chevron has up to 10% ethanol in their regular gas?

so far i've had inconsistent numbers from 7.0L-7.99L/100km. before, it was as low as 6.54L/100km.

my latest calculations were with the new gas.. 10-12L per 100k..which is definitely worse

btw it's not chevron specific..

every station I've been to in the city is displaying the "may contain up to 10% ethanol" sign

it depends on each car... my car took ~8500 km. It was a bit after the second oil change that I started to notice better fuel economy.

i know it's not chevron specific, but chevron is the most recent one to switch over

ethanol is killing my EF's fuel economy.
