    Hi, Should i be using the ECON mode here in Canada in the winter to get a better fuel economy ? I feel the fuel consumption if quite high in the city.

    I've been testing the system recently in the hot weather, and there is one thing that I hate

    Does anyone use the Econ button? Does it really increase mileage that much? I do know it greatly reduces "giddy-up and go" :) I read somewhere on this site that it may even be somewhat harmful to the engine. Given that there is talk of possible engine problems because of supposed oil...

    I consistently averag 29-31 mpg in normal driving - a mix of mostly around town with some highway driving. I noticed the mileage seemed to drop when I engaged ECON. Last fill-up, I turned ECON on and my mileage dropped to just over 25mpg. I do noticed much reduced throttle response in ECON, as...

    I have a love/hate relationship with ECON mode. When I have it enabled, I improve fuel efficiency and prevent myself from speeding(because it reduces power/speed), but I also hate it because sometimes I hate having to step on the accelerator so much in order to gain my desired speed. When I...

    I know our CRV is much more fun to drive in Sport instead of Drive and the econ off. Has anyone compared gas mileage in different modes? IE... in S vs D and with econ off vs. on?

    I drove my cr-v 2017 ex in Econ mode for the first two tanks. Got mileage around 31.5 from car's computer. For the third tank, I turned off Econ and immediately mileage went up to 33.5. I also notice that rpm was fixed at around 2k for Econ. In non-econ mode, it will reduce to 1.5k when slow...

    Last night I notice my engine appeared to be "lugging" at idle after a half-hour trip. I then noticed that the climate control was on "recirc", despite it being a beautiful day, and the difference between the outside and inside temps only being a few degrees. Manually cycling the A/C off...

    Hello all: New member here. I had a 2015 CRV-cvt EX. I averaged 25-26mpg combined, often got 27-28 highway. Cruising at 70-75mph, engine revs were under 2000rpm, maybe 1500rpm (hard to remember). Sadly, I had an accident and vehicle was wrecked; I am OK! I replaced it with a 2016 CRV-cvt EX. My...
  10. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    So i just did my timing belt, valve cover gasket, new tires(which are bigger), and have had a significant drop in fuel mileage and power/acceleration. Now, i understand and expected some loss of fuel mileage and power from the larger tires, but it had a very difficult time getting up the hills...

    What really happens when the ECON is engaged... meaning ON and the green leaf is on... another owner said when ECON is OFF the car is in AWD; when ECON is ON the car is in 2 W drive, which explains better fuel mileage... doesn't really sound correct, but they insist that is what Honda told them...

    I will be driving my 14 CRV EXL to Florida next month (900 miles one way) and I was wondering what you all thought of my using the ECON button for this trip? Will I benefit from this or not? This is my first post, so thank you in advance.
  13. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I'm curious about why all of the posters on this forum who never use the ECON button bought the CRV instead of a CUV with better performance? It seems like most of the comments I read about on this forum mention performance as the main reason for not using ECON. Just curious about the rational!

    Hi, I'm a new owner of a 2014 cr-v ex. I have what I'm sure is a stupid question. Say your driving down the highway at 65 mph and you push the econ button to turn it on. The leaf appears on the dash to show it is on. My question is, how can you tell it's working?
  15. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Didn't see a poll on this so curious to how many leave the econ button on all the time, some of the time or just leave it off.
  16. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Anyone else noticed this? My 2013 did not have ECON stickers in the rear glass panels, as does the 2012.

    Should I turn this button OFF when towing a 800 lb. Seadoo jet ski?
