Default 2006 Civic Fuel Mileage

Anyone have any real world numbers for their 2006 Civic fuel mileage?

The brochure says 8.2L/100km city and 5.7L/100km highway. I'm averaging 9.2
('06 Civic LX - A/T). I even changed my driving habits to try and conserve
fuel.

What's everyone else getting?

Steve

Just made a 7000 mile trip from Los Angeles to Michigan via I-70 and
I-80, 2006 Civic EX 5 speed manual transmission and 9000 miles on
engine at 70 -75 mph. The gas mileage was between 36 and 40 mpg. In
city driving before the trip I got 36 mpg. Wed, 31 May 2006 01:08:34

36mpg is 6.5L/100km. Maybe there is something wrong with my car.

It might also depend on where you live and how you drive. We own 3 cars and
the best one, a '97 Toyota Corolla DX 1.8 auto, gets approximately
9.5L/100km city and around 7L/100km highway (at 120-140 km/h).

Also, there is 1500km on my car. I live on the coast. Have to let it break
in first.

I have never been so disappointed in a car as I am with my brand new Civic
06 EX. I had owned two Accords prior to this one and took the chance at
going a step down to the Civic in order to try and combat the local $3.35
gas prices here in Southern California. Well, the only time I get the stated
mileage is when I am in open freeway with no air conditioning on. At that
time I get about 40mpg. Turn the air on though and my mileage drops to about
28mpg. Combine that with stop and go traffic and I am lucky to get 26. So,
essentially I am averaging about the same as I was with the Accord.

With the Accords I have owned I consistently got between 28 and 33 no matter
what kind of conditions, air on or not. Whatsmore, the air conditioning on
the Civic leaves a lot to be desired and the AM radio sounds like people are
talking into a wet rag.

I do like the design of the Civic, I do like the slightly smaller build, it
IS a rather peppy car for its engine size, and I just love the navigation
system, but I have never regretted a car purchase in all my 45 years of
driving until this one. I WISH I had my Accord back!

You have to factor in that CA has mostly changed to year-round E15.
This knocks down mileage about 10%.

Well that doesn't explain why the Civic really isn't getting any better
mileage for me than the Accord did. It does in ONLY one instance...open
freeway with no air conditioner on..something's not right!

Well, I don't know..it is so unpredictable. Today I filled up and put in 4
gallons after having gone 140 miles with the air on most of the time, so
maybe I am seeing an improvement..I sure hope so.
