Default Getting 22ish mpg on 2010 Honda Civic LX 5spd Auto?

Hi, I just got a 2010 Honda Civic LX with an automatic transmission with EPA MPG ratings at 26 city and 36 highway. Combined is around 29 MPG.I'm getting 22MPG! its terrible! I'm driving mostly expressways and not making frequent stops so i thought I would land at around the low end which is 26. I use hypermiling techniques but i'm not getting good mileage! I coast a lot and try to time my way when approaching stop lights. I would consider myself a very conservative drive. WHAT'S GOING ON?? Do I have to break the engine in? HELP! My friend got 25 out of a BMW 3 series. Getting 22 off a Honda Civic LX with a 1.8litre engine (ultra small...seriously) is just terrible.

Check the pressure on all four tires. Depending on how many miles you have, you can also check the air filter. As far as break in, I don't know if that is the case with today's cars

That's what I get in my '99 Accord with 145,000 miles on it. I agree that you should also get more out of a new Civic. Ultimatley, it's the driver that makes a big difference as well as where the car is driven (city/highway).
