The previous CR-V Hybrid MPG Master Thread has been retired.

Please use this new pinned thread.

<-------- FYI New Members - Please fully complete your profile so we know what vehicle you have (see the arrow on the left in red!).

A poll has been added above.

There are a slew of factors that affect fuel economy.

Posts proclaiming "I'm getting rid of the car" etc are not welcome here just because fuel economy doesn't match expectation(s). Such posts add no value to the discussion and will be removed without notice.

If you could, please convert to US gallons when answering the poll or it will get confused by Imperial ones.
One US gallon is 0.8326741881485 Imperial gallons.
We are talking about statute miles, not nautical ones. :)
When mentioning your mileage, some mention of your location and type of driving will help.
(If you put your location in your profile folks will see it when they hover over the flag)

Why did you start a new poll? I just started a thread that appeared to be doing just fine.

First of all welcome.

I guess a new thread is started to keep all the information in one place and make it easy for anyone new or old to the get information they need faster.

The new poll because the master thread did not had a poll till now. And hey, it says the forum is open to suggestions from everyone (you and me are the main reason here).

Yes, people here love their CRVs more and that can be the reason how you felt. Sorry from my side, if I caused any trouble for you.

It was in the wrong section and was a duplicated thread which is not permitted if you had read the Site Rules.

As @D2s noted above, the previous Master MPG thread did not have a poll. This one does.

Usually 33-34, but the vast majority of my driving since I got the car in April has been on highways. That's not my historical norm because I'm still full-time teleworking; pre-Covid I would have been commuting in DC traffic several days a week and I expect to return to that. I'm sure I'll get higher MPG on my commute because whenever I'm stuck in traffic it shoots up to 37-39. The lowest I have averaged on a tank was ~29, and that was on a road trip when I was doing 75-80 mph, with some hills. I generally keep it in Econ mode, but switch briefly to Sport for highway merges and passing.

Overall mpg stands at 44.21US (53.1 imperial) after 32 months ownership and 23k miles.

The vast majority of my driving is on highways at 50-60mph which in the main is traffic restricted. Consumption is better in town driving and less so on the occasions I get above 70mph. I live on the coast in lowland Scotland so limited number of climbs and the weather is rarely what anyone would call extreme so no exceptional ambient temperature transients.

I drive it like I’ve driven all my previous cars and it’s returned the best economy to date. No special driving techniques but I do use the paddles automatically when slowing down which quickly became second nature. In winter there’s a 15-20% drop in economy so winters not the best time to start fretting about mpg. Give the car time to ease up so I suggest you settle back and enjoy the ride.

Since we have a master thread up, with a poll, for both the ICE versions and the Hybrid versions.... the polling numbers will be good for clarifying fuel economy in the real world, not on EPA bench tests which are not real world but are consistent for comparing one brand/model to another when shopping.

So.. we see pretty clearly the ICE versions of gen5s are generally resulting in 21-30 mpg for a majority of poll respondents. AND.. not surprisingly the Hybrids are running just about 10 mpg better with most respondents reporting 31-40.

And you know what.. that reported difference in fuel economy between ICE and Hybrid fits right in nicely to the mpg curves published by EPA on a comparative basis. In other words... hybrids will on average get 25% better overall fuel economy compared to the ICE versions. In fact, reported numbers are right about where EPA states them to be, which means the hybrids track closer to formal EPA numbers then the ICE versions do... which honestly to me is not surprising.

So.. for folks who want to come to the forum and whine about their hybrid fuel economy.... learn to drive your vehicle as it is intended to be driven, and I think you will find no major surprises in hybrid fuel economy. Yes, in terms of fuel economy, there are right driving habits and wrong driving habits that you can self-optimize if fuel economy is your concern. But you cannot do anything about weather conditions, road conditions, traffic light gridlock, winter fuel blends, or any other seasonal variant that impacts fuel economy.

I wonder what the poll would be if narrowed to 31 - 35 instead of 31 - 40. I have a 2021 EXL that shows combined 32.2 since purchased with 8500 miles on it. I've driven 1200 hwy miles over last 2 weeks and it dropped from 33.5 to 32.2. My 2018 EXL averaged 29 with the same type driving. I'm using 87 octane. This is based on the digital display. I would think that would be accurate, but I haven't verified.

I have recently 'upgraded' to a 2022 CR-V Hybrid Touring (but I can't figure out how to change that in my profile!)
I find that my mileage is less than I was getting in my 2020 EX-L, but I sort of recall it took several months before I was getting 40+ MPG on city/stop and go trips. My best trips are about 32 MPG now.

One difference I've noticed is that when I refill near the end of the tank it's accepting about 12 gallons - on the EX-L it was consistently close to 10.5 gallons to fill the tank. I don't think the gas tank size changed in the intervening year, so I suspect it's a programming change.

I wonder what the poll would be if narrowed to 31 - 35 instead of 31 - 40. I have a 2021 EXL that shows combined 32.2 since purchased with 8500 miles on it. I've driven 1200 hwy miles over last 2 weeks and it dropped from 33.5 to 32.2. My 2018 EXL averaged 29 with the same type driving. I'm using 87 octane. This is based on the digital display.

I concur; ... 20-25, 25-30, 35-40, 40-45 ... would be more informative.

May I ask, Why did you upgrade with in a short period of time?
Was it due to a total loss accident or just wanted the missing features from touring trim?

I was able to trade my existing EX-L in for $3,000 more than I owed, and was able to buy the new one without any markup other than the normal stupid dealer enhancements (many dealers were adding on an additional $2,000-$4,000 premium). Even though it was a 2020, I bought it at the end of the year so it was really only one year old.
I drove a lot last year (24,000 miles) so I'd blow through the warranty in a couple of months from now. I didn't put any money down, so it was like leasing.

Since I didn't need a new car, I was able to wait out the salespeople and get them to pay more for my trade-in and come down on the price.

As for the features? There really was no compelling reason to go for the Touring model, other than that is what they had on hand. The EX-L really has all the features I want (well, my wife actually - leather seats, heated seats, backup camera) as well as some that I came to appreciate. The Touring comes with more chrome (meh), Navigation (not as up to date as Carplay), kick to open rear hatch (neat), and proximity detection whilst parking. The automatic window wipers are kind of cool, too. Oh, and the navigation directions show up on the driver's information panel which was unexpected.

Overall I like the CR-V line, other than the lame information/audio/settings unit.

If we could stick to MPG please...

By all means @BAJ-1 , feel free to start another thread in the Hybrid section over your recent swap :)
