How many mpg do you get?

i have been so fascinated with miles per gallon on cars for so long. my first Honda Accord V6 was starting to get low mileage after its 11 years. and my current Honda V6 gets roughly: 27 mpg mostly highway. i don't know if this sux or what. seems low for a new car, but i do love driving it anyway. i am gonna try the Econ button. not sure what it does, but want to see if it makes a difference.

Re: How many mpg do you get?

My 2012 Mazda 3 (non-skyactive) shows my average is about 23 MPG. It's a mix of mostly city and local driving, with a little bit of highway and toll.

Re: How many mpg do you get?

16-18 mpg city
26-28 mpg highway

Not too good, but my car is old as shit though. It's going on 15 years old now. I only paid $6,000 for it when I bought it. It's probably only worth a couple hundred bucks now.

2013 Sonata...right around 20 city, which is the majority of my driving. Quite a bit better on the highway, but not sure exactly what as that's not my day-to-day.

Re: How many mpg do you get?

Average around 25, can get it up to 28 or so if it's a lot of highway driving and I baby it. Plus my car can't calculate MPG for shit. It's always 1-3 miles less than what I calculate manually.

2002 Saturn SC2, 25 mpg city/highway average. If I drive a long highway trip I can get 30, I've gotten as little as 23 but typically 25.

Re: How many mpg do you get?

I've been on the internet way too long. I saw the thread title as asking about .mpg files.

Re: How many mpg do you get?

You really aren't going to learn anything here

I get anywhere from 12 to 45 depending on which vehicle I am in, how I am driving it, traffic and weather conditions.

colder weather = worse MPG
shorter trips = less mpg
more flooring the gas pedal = less mpg
really bad traffic = less MPG
excessive speeding = less mpg

warmer weather = better mpg
longer highway road trips = more mpg
gently on the gas pedal at all times = more mpg
no traffic = more mpg
not going over 55mph = more mpg

You can get real gas during the summer? Awesome!

30 mpg in the Saab, 21 mpg in the station wagon. They both dropped about 15% due to ethanol.
