2008 Honda Accord EX-L V6: Fuel Economy Update

April 28, 2008

Three months and 4,200 miles have passed since we last updated our long-term Honda Accord's fuel log. High time we gave you the digits, no?

Our lifetime average is 21.1 mpg, so we're still not quite hitting the EPA's estimate of 22 mpg for combined driving, despite my husband';s determination to keep the green ECO dash light lit during a stint behind the wheel this weekend.

Our best tanks are generally in the mid 20s, worst tanks drop into the 16-17 range.

We've used 436.1 gallons of fuel and have driven it more than 9,000 miles since we took ownership of the Accord last fall.
