Default accord v6 fuel mileage

I am wondering what kind of gas mileage to expect from my 2001 accord v6.I
owned it for 8 months or so and decided to see what kind of mileage I was
getting.I did some figuring with city driving and I am getting a
"disgusting"15.5 miles per gallon.
As far as I have been reading,this seems way too low.Anyone else getting
mileage this low in city driving?My tires are up to proper psi,however I
have yet to replace the filters and plugs that may boost it up a bit.
thanks in advance!

2000 Accord EX V6. City get around 24-25 mpg. Highway, 3500 mile RT trip
going about 75-80 mph--got 27-29 mpg, can get higher, over 30, if I slow
down. Don't figure your mileage on one fill up. It will be inaccurate. Try
calculating over several tankfulls and see if that makes any difference. If
not, then you've got a problem.

I've never got any mileage that low. I'm getting
between 28 and 30 mpg in town through the winter with
my Accord (same year and engine as yours).

that brings up a good point.When they test cars for mileage per gallon,they
should refer to winter time or summer time.It makes a huge
difference,probably as huge as highway and city.

well Brian,I filled it up a week or so ago.Drove around Halifax for that
week and filled up again yesterday.It took 44.13 litres and my odometer read
227 kilometers.
Did I do the math correctly?

The EPA tests fuel economy for bureaucratic reasons - they are used for
calculating CAFE ratings. Actually, any semblance to the numbers we get are
coincidental.

Using your numbers above, I came up with 14.4 mpg. What
is the mileage on your car?
