2011 Honda Odyssey: Best Fuel Range In Its Segment
January 06, 2012
Ed wrote a similar post back in August, but having just done a lot of road trip highway driving, it's worth mentioning again: the Odyssey's fuel range is quite good. Biggest fuel tank (21 gallons) of the four heavies (Odyssey, Sienna, Quest and Chrysler vans) plus the best V6 highway fuel economy (28 mpg) equals less stopping for gas.
I looked at our fuel logs for the Odyssey and Sienna. The Odyssey's average of miles on a tank is 310.7 miles. The Sienna posts an average of 262.8 miles between fill ups. The Honda's also had fewer fills overall. It hasn't quite hit 20,000 miles yet, but I'm estimating it will be about 60 fills to reach 20K. The Sienna took 73.
It's just a little thing, but when cresting 450 miles from a tank, it's a nice feeling nonetheless.
