2016 Honda Civic: Strong June for Miles Raises Lifetime Average Fuel Economy
by Jason Kavanagh, Engineerng Editor on July 11, 2016
Our 2016 Honda Civic was driven more than 2,500 miles in June, thanks in large part to a long road trip for which it served as steed. Along the way it notched its highest single-tank fuel economy and range yet observed.
The mile-heavy month did a lot to bolster its lifetime fuel economy performance.
The Civic again achieved the EPA Combined estimate of 35 mpg over the course of the month, just like it did during May. As a consequence, the Civic's rolling lifetime average fuel economy rose to 32.1 mpg, which is still shy of its EPA Combined number, but a big rise from last month's rolling average of 30.6 mpg.
Worst Fill MPG: 20.5
Best Fill MPG: 49.4
Average Lifetime MPG: 32.1
EPA MPG Rating: 35 Combined (31 City/42 Highway)
Best Range: 410.2 miles
Current Odometer: 7,123 miles
Note: Cars are sometimes refueled well before their fuel tanks approach empty. As such, "best" and "worst" fuel economy entries above are not necessarily the result of an entire tank's worth of driving.
