  1. Fuel Economy on 2016 CRV SE AWD not as expected

    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...
  2. 2018 Touring AWD fuel economy (or lack thereof!)

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    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?
  3. Replaced fuel injectors = instant fuel economy drop?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    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...
  4. Real world fuel economy

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    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.
  5. Escalating problems: instant fuel economy gauge, engine temperature, BSI

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    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...
  6. Weird Fuel Economy - 20 MPG in City and 39 MPG on Highway.

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    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...
  7. 2010 CRV Odometer Fuel Economy Display LCD Issue

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, I would like to share a couple pictures with you regarding my odometer display. On a cold day, I lose my odometer display. On a warm day, the odometer returns. I undid my negative battery terminal to reset the ECU, but it did not work. Any other ideas are welcome. I know it's not the...
  8. Post your best 1.5T fuel economy numbers on one tank.

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    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...
  9. Fuelly vs. CR-V Doesn't match and economy is dropping

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    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...
  10. Diesel Fuel economy

    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...
  11. 2016 Fuel Economy / Gas Mileage

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    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.
  12. Poor local Fuel Economy

    Problems & Issues
    I own a 2010 Honda CRV EX 2WD with 44K miles. I can only get 16.5 MPG local driving, and 24 on Freeway. I am very proactive with the maintenance, tire pressure. What should I be averaging locally?
  13. What's not to love?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    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...

  15. 2010 CRV Acceleration and fuel economy issues

    Problems & Issues
    First post here. My 2010 AWD EX has been having serious issues with acceleration and fuel economy the last two months. I'm on my third shop trying to get it fixed and am honestly getting ready to trade it in altogether. At slow speeds the car is really dragging, like I'm getting less punch at an...
  16. 2009 AWD - Sudden drop in fuel economy

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...
  17. 4th Gen Fuel Economy

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    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...

I bought this vehicle 2 days ago. It has so far driven only about 50 miles. The salesman at the the dealership sold me...
