  1. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I was expecting the fuel economy to be quite good buying this CRV used from the Honda dealership at 43,000kms. however with a mix use of city and highway, im getting about 13.2L/100km. we are currently experiencing cold weather here in toronto and i could see that being an issue since heating is...

    After 2500 miles very disappointed in the fuel economy to date. I realize I probably need to take a longer trip, but so far the average MPG I'm getting is about 25.5 and 5 MPG worse than the 15 year old car I traded to buy the CR-V. Really?

    A couple weeks ago, my CR-V was at the dealer a second time for the dreaded gas in oil. The first time it was deemed overfilled, so they changed the oil. This time they acknowledged gasoline in the engine oil and deemed it bad fuel injectors. After they replaced the fuel injectors, my fuel...

    Hey. First time poster here . I'm wondering what's a reasonable real world mpg for their crvs . Im currently driving a 2014 ex. I always use the econ mode. I am getting 20.8 mpg. I heard some people as high as 28. What can I do to improve the mpg other then driving habits.

    For many months, the instant fuel economy gauge has worked as expected: when I press the accelerator, the bar moves up to indicate higher fuel usage (poorer economy) and when I let go of the accelerator or press the brake, lower fuel usage (better economy). However, recently I noticed that when...

    Hi, I own 2017 Cr-V Ex-L AWD which was bought in mid March. I live in Camp Hill PA, and usually commute for about a mile for work in the city. I've been gathering data from the last trip economy in trip computer and I seem to be averaging about 20 mpg in City. I suspect this could be due to...

    Whats the best fuel economy have you achieved between fill-ups with your 1.5? This must be an average on a tank of fuel, not for a short distance going down hill for example. Please specify AWD or FWD, driving conditions and average speeds during that tank of fuel used. I wonder if an AWD...

    Background: bought 2016 EX on May 13th. As of 12/14/16, I have 18,200 miles on it. I drive almost all highway miles, between 65 - 72 mph. Tire pressure is 35 as it will drop a little in cold weather and also over time as I may not check it again until March. Observations - - Going over 70...
  9. Diesel CR-V
    I tried a little experiment to see what would be the most economy I could achieve from my 2006 Honda CRV Diesel. I achieved an amazing 50 mpg over 484 miles. Please see photo of my dashboard at a trip mileage of 484 miles . I achieved this by doing the following:- • Keeping my foot off the...

    Running 70 in a 70 zone, 60 - 65 in appropriate zones. (Normally go about 5 over.) Fuel economy is 31.8. But got 34.6 on that segment. Haven't had much of a chance to see about city driving. Drive to work sites is usually 1 hour on highways. 5700 miles since May 13th.

    I can reasonably rely on my new 2015 CRV to pull 35 mpg combined with Eco on. Happy happy happy! For those who complain about such mileage on their CRV, take it from me, you don't realize what you have. My previous SUV same size could only pull about 20-25 combined and in winter, lucky to see...

    Hello, These are data - fuel consumption for my CRV 2.0 AVT (EU model), 150 HP. http://www.spritmonitor.de/en/detail/648273.html After 10,000 km or 6200 miles, consumption is 26 MPG. I'm pleased.

    Hi my 2009 CRV has 83 000 miles on it, at the beginning of this winter I noticed a serious drop in fuel economy i went from getting close to 300 per tank to around 185 per tank. This seems to have happened overnight, I do not have a check engine light and the engine seems to be running normally...

    After reading so many of you complaining that your mpg's are low, I have finally come to the conclusion as to why: You are doing it wrong. If you drive using quick acceleration and breaking at the last second you will not have great mpg's. If you drive 70+ mph on the highway you will not...

    Hello CRV Owners... I just bought a 2014 AWD LX with Twilight Blue color. I love driving it on freeways and even inside the city. But, I am suffering from a bad fuel economy. I bought this vehicle 2 days ago. It has so far driven only about 50 miles. The salesman at the the dealership sold me...

    Drove from Akron OH to Columbus OH this afternoon in my 2010 CR-V EXL. 55 mph at 1750 RPM. 5 speed Automatic/AWD with A/C running set to 70F.

    This post is mostly for CRV drivers who live in cooler climates - anything north of the 41st should work. I'm in Toronto where we're hitting -4c to -10c these days, and I've noticed the fuel economy on my 2010 CRV take something of a nose dive. I've had an oil change and general inspection and...

    Hi, I recently purchased a 2012 crv awd ex-l and am getting 16 mpg 100% city. The sticker states 22 mpg city. is something wrong with the vehicle and how do i improve the fuel economy. i do admit there are alot of traffic lights and stopping/going and sometimes short trips but should this...
  20. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I was planning on purchasing a 2012 CR-V EX-L AWD in the next few weeks. I am now concerned about reports of 15-16 mpg in city driving. We have an 07 RAV-4 4 cylinder AWD which does 20-21 in mostly city driving. Forgetting the usual break-in period, winter gas, cold weather, etc. excuses which...
