  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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.
  2. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...
  3. Problems & Issues
    Hi all, My father is having problems with his crv recently. When motorway driving the engine can cut out leaving the engine management light on. After a couple of minutes the engine can be restarted and all is well again. He took it in to a specialist who found and 'unknown' code. In addition...
  4. Problems & Issues
    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...
  5. 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...
  6. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    A friend of mine recently put 0W-20 into his Si to get a little better fuel economy. No word yet on if it's worked, but I wonder, has anyone tried that on their CRV, did it have any impact on fuel economy or other things, and are there any potential pitfals from doing so? Not up for an oil...
  7. Diesel CR-V
    After having a full service on my 2.2 diesel (2006 plate) a couple of months ago I got the feeling that I was filling up a lot more regular than usual. Last weekend on a full tank I drove 250 miles on a motorway and since then 75 urban before needing to refill The readout in my crv is showing...
  8. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi, I'm awaiting delivery of my 2011 XL AWD. I'm already dreading the curse of the Bridgestone Duelers mine will probably have, especially since I live a snowy, icy area. :eek: That aside, I'm wondering about the effects of the 10.1 compression ration on performance and economy. Normally, a...
  9. Diesel CR-V
    Age old one this, but it's a bit heavy on the juice. 30 mpg is my lot. Admittedly the driving has featured a lot of short runs, so I'm not overly concerned given that, the CRV's relative size, aerodynamics (lack thereof) etc. etc. However I just wondered if these engines have any other...
  10. Diesel CR-V
    Bit of a weird one this. The current fuel economy gauge in the LCD display, the little bar that moves backwards and forwards and indicates the actual real time fuel economy has disappeared from the LCD display on my 2005 diesel CRV. The other displays are fine but the bar has completely...
  11. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    What's the HIGHEST mpg you've ever experienced on a tank of gas? Seems like a simple question but there are some qualifiers, mostly for people with the new fuel economy displays. 1) Do not give an "instant" mpg; obviously you can get ~100mpg downhill with no throttle. Give for one tank...
  12. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Took a trip this weekend with some interesting results. Round trip was about 750 miles. On the first half of the trip, was traveling westward - 65mph average, two adults, a 90lb lab, luggage and two bikes on a hitch mounted rack. Averaged 28.1mpg. On the return trip - everything was exactly...
  13. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    My goal is to get this CRV up to a consistent 30mpg on the highway. I love getting good fuel economy, and the 2nd-gen CRV is a frustratingly blocky shape which works against that! In this thread, I'll be chronicling the efforts to improve my car's highway economy. Lots of aerodynamic tweaks for...
  14. Problems & Issues
    I was told that the Gen 3 uses more fuel around town since it is heavier. On the highway, I was told they have about the same mileage. What have those that have owned both actually found - what is your experience?
  15. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hey all I've just upgraded from my OEMs 17"s to 19" wheels, running 265/50/19 Perelli Nero all-seasons on all four corners. I noticed that my fuel economy has gone down TREMENDOUSLY! I've just gotten back from a test drive from a trip that would usually take only 3 bars, has taken a total of...
  16. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello, Could the owners of manual (or auto) 2.0 i-VTEC Gen3 CR-V's let me know how's the fuel economy ... especially on the highway? Cheers.
  17. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My CR-V trip computer seems to only look at the last 100 to 200 miles of data for average fuel economy. I am still gathering info on this, but I was trying to keep my Trip A as a lifetime average fuel economy, and I reset Trip B when I filled up. So far, the two values converge after 100 to...
  18. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Does anybody have fuel economy figures for a 2.0 Auto Exec. I am only getting around 20mpg urban and 30.2mpg extra urban (30.2mpg based on a round trip of 80 miles of motorway driving on a dry Sunday afternoon with cruise control set at 70mph) . Compared with the figures published in the sales...
  19. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hi, When comparing the specs of the EX with the SE: SE SE It shows 22/27 for the SE trim and 21/26 for the SE. Is there that difference? Could it be the difference in the axle ratio: SE: 4.438:1 EX: 4.765:1 Thanks for your answers!
  20. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I bought 07 CR-V last year and considering of installing a roof rack on it, perhaps a bike rack eventually. I'm wondering if that can cause dragging and perhaps affect the gas mileage (just roof rack itself). I know once I install this, it would be permanent. Anyone who have a thought on this?
