Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I'm curious about the accuracy of the mpg readout. I just today finished a drive on the first tank of our new CRV. The trip was about 170 miles downhill to the coast and the readout was an amazing 37.6 mpg. I'm having some trouble believing that's for real. My Hyundai Elantra GT regularly reads about 2 mpg high. Is the CRV equally optimistic? Of course I'll know when I fill up, but figured someone already had a good idea about the general accuracy. Thanks.

I've been tracking my gas usage and mpg readout since December, about 5k miles. I find the readout mpg trends about 2% higher than gas purchases would indicate.

Mine, too, has been reasonably accurate. The most accurate system I've ever had was on my 2000 Volvo S80. It was spot on to my calculated numbers.
