I should note the trip computer said 33.8 mpg so there's a pretty decent difference - it will be interesting to see how accurate it is going forward. I drove 521 miles and put in just over 14 gallons of gas. I drove 90% of the time with the econ button on - very conservatively. Nice, eh?

Its impressive if the exact same fill level was used for the sample period and the math is correct. Our 2011 Odyssey has a fuel consumption computer and I've compared it to my numbers when filling to the exact same level in the tank and it is always within .2 L/100 km.

The math is correct however I can't speak for the fill level - though I can't imagine it's off by more than a quarter of a gallon. I'll find out more when I fill it up again in a couple weeks.

Please disregard my previous post - it dawned on me that I didn't reset the trip odometer when I drove the car off the lot. The dealer filled the car up after driving it from one dealer to the other - so the numbers posted are innacurate.

Just signed on as well. Too bad there's no iPhone app, but the mobile site isn't bad.

First fill up today. Computer reads 28.4 over 355 miles. This is a first, most computer mpg is optimistic. Measured fuel economy is 29.37 mpg. 60% city. Very impressive.

Yeah, I just created a homepage link, don't even think about that it's not an app.

Hey, everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster. Just picked up a Modern Steel EX CVT last weekend and loving it so far. Attatched is my first fuelly fill-up. Was actually a little disappointed, as the trip A summary showed 35.3 mpg. I guess it's reading a bit optimistic for me, but I'll have to see if that's a continuing trend.
This is a great community, by the way. I've found it very helpful for research while considering what car to get. I was actually considering a used 7th gen, but the features offered on the 9th (and the seemingly high resale market prices on the 7th) made my decision for me.

I'm pretty sure I saw the answer to this on another thread. A car has to have 3 fill-ups before it will show on the site. However, you can see all of them if you look at the details for your car in your fuelly garage (assuming you have a 2013), then follow the hyperlink at the bottom by clicking "2013" under "Browse Similar Cars."

Interesting to see the price differance is gas. $4.56 in CA US and only $3.50 in AL US.
Since I assume you're referencing my fill-up...

It's gotten outta hand pretty fast here. I filled up in a smallish coastal town, which certainly didn't do me any favors on price. In general, I've heard the coasts pay the most due to distance from refineries and things. Also, California gas is (I believe) formulated a bit different due to heightened state emissions standards.
