2016 Honda Civic: Edging Closer to EPA Estimates
by Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor on August 4, 2016
It's been a busy month for our long-term 2016 Honda Civic. July saw the repair of a cracked windshield, the first scheduled maintenance visit and, thanks to a stint in our Fresno offices, an increase in the overall fuel economy average.
Our best and worst fill figures remain unchanged, but our lifetime average rose from 32.1 mpg in June to 33.2 mpg in July. It's looking like we may reach the EPA combined estimate of 35 mpg. While in Brent's care, the Civic also bested its former range record on a single tank by 3 miles.
Worst Fill MPG: 20.5
Best Fill MPG: 49.4
Average Lifetime MPG: 33.2
EPA MPG Rating: 35 Combined (31 City/42 Highway)
Best Range: 413.0 miles
Current Odometer: 10,000 miles
