  1. Accord Hybrid 10th Gen
    Hello, I am quite curious about front spoiler lip which a lot people installed on their 10th Accord. My question is, will this lip improve fuel economy by improving aerodynamics? If so, by how much percent? How about other accessories e.g. side skirt, rear ducktail spoiler, underbody cover...

    I have a 2013 Accord EX-L 4cyl sedan with 139,000 miles. For my last 5,000 miles it said I was averaging 22.1mpg. While I do drive a lot of city roads, the previous 10k and the 10k before that were averaging 27.6mpg. I have changed the engine oil, transmission oil, brakes, and tires as...

    So it appears that there is a hard cap in the Accord's trip computer and other mpg calculations. I was able to go from the top of Rocky Mountain National Park at the Alpine Visitor's Center to Loveland, CO without exiting EV mode all the while the trip computer considered 199.9 mpg and would not...

    Hi, and thanks for this forum. I am the owner of a brand-new 2018 Honda Accord hybrid, purchased two months ago. While I like the ride and the safety features, the MPG average is a joke. And, it's not because of my driving habits. I drive 44 miles round trip every day. Same route. Twelve miles...

    I own a 2018 Accord Touring 2.0T. I have almost 900 miles on it currently and have had it since 12/26. I love the car as it is seems like a much more expensive car, drives smooth and quite, has lots of grunt, and to me looks amazing. I put my third tank of gas in the car today. I have been a...

    Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and am relying on everyones expert opinions to help me with my issue. Like the title says, I have a 2013 Accord V6 coupe. I have had the car for a little over a year, and, historically, have always gotten pretty great gas mileage (EPA estimate or better)...

    All of the trims above LX weight about the same. So looking at the spec sheet, the only difference that explain the mpg differences of the Sport are the 19" wheel and the rear spoiler. But EXL with 86 lb heavier than the LX gets the same MPG as the LX. Did they really tested the EXL's mpg or...

    I'm finally giving Dirty Girl the TLC she needs, and she's not AS dirty anymore! So, I figured, why not make a thread for her? :) I installed a lot of what is in this box, and more needs to get installed still. Driver side spray nozzle It's hard to see, but you can see the hyper...

    Hello Guys, I recently bought a used Accord 2011 EX-L V6 with 37k miles in mint show room condition. The car feels and rides like new. I mostly have done city driving in past two weeks and I noticed very poor MPG of 9.6 according on the trip computer. I topped the tank from reserve with 20.3...

    I just bought a used 2015 Sport with under 20,000 miles, been driving it for three weeks with the ECO on, and now for a few days with echo button off to see the difference. I get at least 3 to 4 miles per gallon better with the button off. This doesn't make sense to me. Has anybody else had a...

    Here recently I have been hearing some weird noise from my car. A 2011 accord coupe ex-l l4. It only happens when the engine is cold and I start it. Other then the annoying noise it makes for a few seconds the only other symptom I have is that my mpg has decreased by 50 miles. Does anyone else...

    Hi fellow forum members, :smile I am new here and a new proud owner of the *** 2016 Accord LX CVT HS in SoCal. So far I am very happy with my purchase but I have a question that I couldn't find the answer anywhere. What is the real difference, in terms of performance, for the 2016 Accord LX...

    So I took a trip over the Alabama to get a trunk load of fireworks this morning. The car has 2k miles on it. Drove 244.2 miles round trip and got 40.5 mpg according to the computer. Fuel used since new is ethanol free 87 octane from RaceTrac, with 7ml of Archoil 6200 additive. No A/C...

    Hi there -- I just bought my first Accord & I'm new to these forums. Anyway, something's been confusing me and I can't seem to find anything in the owners manual about this. Q: What is the difference between these two MPG numbers? They both apparently show "average" MPG, but they are never the...

    I purchased a 2014 Accord EX-L CVT sedan in late August. Apart from the drive from the dealer and maybe one other semi-long trip, the car has been city only driving since then (North Shore of MA). I commute to one of two offices four days per week - one is 3 miles away; the other is 7.5 miles...

    Hi all, new to the forum here. I'm currently thinking about buying a new 2014 accord sedan (lx) and am really getting hung up on the transmission options. My local dealer has a 6 speed for just over 20k and a CVT for 21k. My MAIN goal here would be getting better gas mileage as I'm currently...

    I have a 2007 SE with the 4 cylinder engine. I was wondering what the best way to run the A/C to maximize my MPG. When I run it I have the fan turned up to max and the temp. sent somewhere in the middle of the blue line with the recirculate turn on of coarse. Since I got the car in June I...
