Default Honda Civic Hybrid mileage - true?

What's the actual mileage? And the 2008 model is 45 mpg on highway... while the 2007 is 49/50. Slightly confused.... did EPA standards change? Or is the 2007 better than the 2008?If you don't know the answer to the EPA thing, but want to brag (or curse) about your Civic or your buddies Civics, I have this question up:http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...msgr_status=Or answer here. *shrug* I'm not fussy

Yes. when they changed they also recalculated the mpg figures for previous years. If you start athttp://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/findacar.htmand check the 2007 HCH you will see the mileage was revised to be the same as the 2008 model, 45 mpg highway, 40 mpg city, 42 combined.The same page will give you "MPG Estimates from Drivers Like You." For the 2007 HCH the average is 42.4 mpg, just what the EPA estimates.As for my experience with a 2008 HCH, in the cold and snow I have averaged less than 40 MPG, while in warmer weather (no heat or AC required) I have averaged over 45 MPG. I should note that I would not average over 45 MPG if I still drove 75 MPH on the highway, My speed on the interstates is now closer to 65 MPH most of the time, and sometimes I opt for the old two lane highways at 50 to 55 MPH instead.
