Default Accord V6 gas mileage?



What real world gas mileage do people get with their V6 Honda Accords,
specifically the 3.0L used in the 98-02 EX Accord?

Thanks to all . .

I usually get around 28-31 mpg in town and 35-38 mpg on the highway, with my
Wife and I in the car.

Practice safe eating - always use condiments.

About 23 around town (short trips, work commute is only 5 miles one way for
me), about 31 on the highway (CA, where 70MPH on the freeway and you are a
slug).

I am guessing that Brian's 'style' includes using the imperial gallon in his
computation of mpg since he is in Canada. The imperial gallon is 20% larger
than the US gallon so getting some of his gas would certainly improve your
computed mileage. It wouldn't save you any money but it makes the number
more impressive.

That, and using cruise control as much as possible.

Why does a slight tax increase cost
you two hundred dollars and a substantial
tax cut saves you thirty cents?

Hi,
Talking about MPG and break lining/disc pad wear is moot.
Every one has different driving style.
Jack rabbit start, hurry up and brake, tail gating which needs
frequent braking, not knowing when to shift, coasting to stop light,
etc., etc.
I think female drivers are worse in general.
Tony
