2008 Honda Accord: 22 MPG Average
December 03, 2007
Two words that should strike fear into your heart: house hunting. And with good reason. Despite the fact that the internet makes it easy to view and discard possibilities from the comfort of your own couch, there's still way too much driving around, driving around, driving around that takes place during the shopping period. They call it "hunting" for a reason
We logged close to 400 miles on the long-term 2008 Honda Accord while hunting for the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood with the perfect elementary school, and despite all of the low-speed drivebys followed by the stand-on-the-gas getaways, the Accord scored an even 22 mpg over 362.4 miles. Current mpg over the life of our Accord is now 22.2.
Lucky for us the house hunt is now over, and the Accord waited patiently this morning in our new driveway while Home Inspector Marc made his rounds.
