2012 Honda CR-V: Fuel Economy Update for February
March 4, 2013
Our long-term 2012 Honda CR-V continued to rack up mileage at a brisk pace in February. We drove 1,892 miles in our compact crossover, and with three months left in our year-long test, we might just hit 25,000 miles before all is said and done.
During February, the CR-V averaged 25.4 miles on plain old 87 octane fuel (which cost us a cool $4.30 per gallon during this last fill-up of the month). Not only is that consistent with the crossover's lifetime average, it matches the EPA's combined mpg rating for the all-wheel-drive CR-V. Not bad.
Meanwhile, our best tank of the month netted 30.2 mpg over 263.3 miles (short of our Honda's lifetime best of 31.3). February's worst tank came in at 21.3 mpg over 162.0 miles (its lifetime low is 17.1).
