Gas Mileage: The Final Word!
By Apollo08 on


2008 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I’m an engineer and have been interested in and working on cars for years. I’ve been reading these user reviews and have been amazed at how many people claim low gas mileage. From these reviews it would appear that the Ody is a real gas pig. This however, is not the case. My Ody gets about 17-18 mpg S. Cal city driving (stop lights every 200- 500 yards). If I can get this and your getting 12 then one or more of the following apply: *low tire pressure (<28) *driving habits (ultra-short 1-5 mile trips-engine not reach operating temp) *load / number of passengers (6+ passengers) *can't properly calc mpg (many don’t do it right) bottom line: engine variation is negligible. It's the operator
