Driving around the city, I am currently at half a tank of gas and 200 miles clocked on the trip meter.

Can anyone beat that??:naughty:

I beat it quite easily each and every week, and I'm driving a V6 5AT. I can routinely hit 240 miles in the city on the trip meter when the needle touches half. But then again I'm the guy who has an '05 V6 5AT sedan with 162k miles on her that gets 36 mpg at 75 mph using cruise control...see here:

So sorry to burst your "I'm getting great MPGs with my 6-6 coupe" bubble... :lmao:

200 miles at half tank is pretty much the norm for the v6. I average about 25-26mpg on a tank. Best average i got was 30mpg with AC on whole time, 6th gear long drive to DC.

17-19 mpg 60% city... Driving it like its stolen. I hit 32-33 with AC at 80mph on highway trips. Get about 23 in the 4/5at driving more conservatively about 75% city.

19.6MPG for the average workweek tank, 70% city driving.
My best tank was 41MPG, 95% open highway.
I've still never used eco mode, and I've certainly never tried to drive conservatively.

Once my Takeda CIA gets here I expect to reach all time lows. Heh.

And you're clearly posting in the wrong section because the 7th gen V6 doesn't have an eco mode...

I hit 34 MPG averaging 65-70 mph on a trip from NYC to Albany and back.
I average around 21-22 MPG with mostly city driving with a light foot.

How are you guys getting such amazing mileage? I drive a 05 Accord V6 AT and can barely get 180kms (winter heat always on/90%city) at half tank mark. What PSI do you inflate tyres to?

Ever hang out with fishermen?

No one, and I mean NO ONE, uses the "half tank" method for calculating gas mileage.

Fill up your gas tank
Zero your trip meter
Drive
Fill up your tank and divide miles driven by gallons used. Thar be your MPG.

I've never understood anyone using the fuel gauge to guess at how good their MPG is.

As I posted in MikeW's thread, I got 28.28mpg running 80+ in 35 degree weather Tuesday. No cruise, heavy throttle foot, and 20 miles of traffic lights.

Yeah our gas gauges don't really fall at the linear rate that I would like them to, with the second half of the tank "disappearing" much quicker than the first. After driving almost 100k miles in my car though I can "guesstimate" pretty close (within 1-2 MPG) to my MPGs based on where my gauge is at and the trip meter's total miles.

Yeah, true. I know if I hit 230+ at half way, there is a good chance I'll be at 30 or better. But then again, my trips are usually about 240 miles one way, so that gets thrown out the window when I beat it around town for the next 100 before I fill.
