2012 Honda CR-V: No Baloney Trip Meter
September 17, 2012
As far as trip computers go, I'm just interested in knowing what my fuel economy average is and how many miles I can still drive before needing to refuel. I don't need distracting, minute video game graphics that tell me the fuel mileage every nanosecond or that act as a "coach" to promote more fuel efficient driving. Let me guess -- If I go easy on the gas I'll get more miles per gallon?
The CR-V provides all I want in large, clear font that's located up high where it's easy to see at a glance. And don't be alarmed by the 17.0 mpg average I was getting over the weekend -- the CR-V saw virtually all city driving (with plenty of traffic as seen above). The CR-V is averaging 25.7 mpg overall with us thus far.
