Default MDX Gas Mileage

I now have approx. 8000 km. on a 2003 MDX and my Trip meter continues to
register my gas mileage at 18.5 miles per cdn. gallon. I have no reason to
dispute that number because it does seem to go thru a lot of gas.

Just wondering what other people are getting?

Thanks,

Go check out www.acuramdx.org. There, a few other owners of the same
car mention the samething. FYI, with my Pilot, it wasn't until after
about 15,000km that I started getting the claimed/advertised fuel
efficiency. I still can't believe that it took that long, but now I'm
getting about 14.5L/100KM (16.8MPG) in the city and about 10L/100KM
(22.2MPG) on highway travel. Sure would've been nice if it happened
sooner. Before that, I was getting like 17L/100KM (13.8MPG)!!!

But just wondering, how did you get your numbers? I mean, 18.5MPG for
city driving is really, really good. What's CDN gallon? How many
liters? All you have to do is, divide 235.215 by the L/100KM number
to conver from L/100KM to MPG.

You said your 'trip meter continues to register ... 18.5' after 800km. Are
you resetting (manually or automatically) the trip meter at each fill-up? I
have an '03 MDX with about 5000 miles. If our driving between fill up is
mostly city driving we get about 17 mpg. If we drive mostly highway, we get
about 21 mpg.

mpg highway with my TL.

CDN gallon = to the Imperial gallon? If so, that's terrible mileage.

I get 18.3 mpg overall. Quite good for the kind of performance this vehicle
offers.

If you are suspecting hidden any problem because of the low mileages,
don't ignore it because it could be an ECU defect. I 'd suggest you
to fuel it up full tank and drove 50 miles on freeway and head back
to this gas station to fuel up again and see what you get. If the
highway mileage isn't what it claims in the expected range, see a
dealer. oh just make sure all your tires got the appropriated pressure.
and drive at a moderate speed like at the limit... don't push hard
during the test and don't get the bad traffic jam time to test.

My friend's 02 RL had a simple ECU defect issue. The dealership
service was too dumb to figure that out too late... not until my friend
got a lawyer to send a letter to Acura USA to demand for a refund
calculated with the net loss...

We got our MDX in April and have just over 3000 miles on it. We've
been getting around 18.5 mpg city driving, average speed around 33
mph. On our first long distance trip this weekend, we got 22.5 mpg.
I think that's really great for a 260 hp, awd, 7-passenger SUV with
the ac continuously running! We love it!
