    I'm one of the owners with disappointing fuel efficiency. I'd kind of resigned myself to best at 24mpg around town and 30mpg average for highway trips (as calculated at the pump). :( Am I the only one here who bought this car expecting closer to 28/34 mpg? Checking... Honda still shows 28/34...

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
