    overall gas mileage decreasing

    I've noticed that the gas mileage on the 2018 crv ex is decreasing. It's averaging now 24mpg - way under the average mpg noted on the sticker. Any solutions?

    have you ever reset the "A" mileage when filling w/Fuel? if you don't it keeps on going and going and I believe you won't get a fair reading from your recent drive.

    I remember reading the sticker and the Mileage is based on 100 miles and however way they test it?

    No way does it say we put in Winter gas and ran 100 mi. came out with...
    No way did it say we put in Gas with additives and ran it 100 mi , came out with...

    So there is no way of knowing what each person gets, due to Weight in car, Tempeture of the days driven, Inclime, decline, etc..

    If you gotten good mileage one day and starts decreasing, could you start telling us how your History of driving was..

    Because I see people just push the Pedal to baby the cars. with no means to save on gas....

    short drives and idles will affect the mpg's....
    I would set the Trip A setting to reset at each gas refill, and Trip B for manual (for your road trips)

    if you look at your trip history after a reset, you will notice that if you did one short trip and one long trip the two averages and mpg will be between the two readings.... the short trip will have a much lower number thus messes up the mpg numbers.

    I remember the time when we first bought our CRV last year in May. Was getting 33 mpg. Then over the winter, it went down to 28 mpg. Same driving pattern. We'll see if it gets back to 33 mpg this summer.

    I'm in a very similar situation. I'm hoping it starts to creep back up, now that we're exiting winter.

    Where I live during the winter they use a different blend of fuel that causes a reduction in fuel economy. Their are also other factors. https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/coldweather.shtml

    A couple thoughts of a general nature. Well, three thoughts.

    1) Those numbers on new car window stickers are close to fiction. Not necessarily false, but kind like the photos on a T.V. Dinner. How close the numbers (or the photo) come to your ‘reality’ is relative and subject to interpretation. For me, those numbers are for comparing one car’s fuel economy to another car’s. Therefore, I expect a Toyota Prius to get better mpg than a Chevy Suburban - but I won’t be surprised if neither actually achieves the sticker numbers. Lower your expectations and you’ll be happier.

    2) Actual mpg on any vehicle will be affected by many different things. Yeah, stop & go driving will suck the fuel a lot faster than steady highway speeds; four butts will use more than only one; a heavy foot - passing, acceleration, etc., is tougher than easing it out. Cold air is denser, as is sea level. Hot air & 5000’ elevation will bring a grin at the pump. Remember to compare similar trends & conditions.

    3) if all else fails, stop thinking about numbers and just remember that “it is what it is”.

    Enjoy the drive!
