Hi all, I am hoping some (or one) of you can help me out. I purchased a 2008 CRV in December 08 after trading in an 06 Odyssey - wanted a smaller vehicle with better gas mileage. Well, during the 5 months I have owned it (in the frigid arctic that is SE Wisconsin), it is averaging 15-17 mpg city and 18-21 mpg in mixed driving. I do not slam on brakes to stop nor do jackrabbit starts - I get dusted out of the gate by elderly Buicks.
So, I have noticed during internet searches that those of us with 2008s seem to have the poor mileage issues. Is there a reason for this? is there anything that can be done to correct it? I seriously got better mileage with the V6 minivan!! I love the CRV, but am very unhappy with the mileage I am getting. Am thinking about trading it back in for something else. So, any help?!! TIA!
