There has been some debate on another thread (see below) about pretty disappointing economy on the new 1.6 I-DTEC automatic. http://hondakarma.com/threads/fuel-economy.18432/live As an owner of the 2.0 i-VTEC automatic, I thought it would be useful to start a thread for members with any of the 4th Generation CR-V engine / transmission combinations to log their fuel economy, especially as on other threads I've seen some excellent numbers for the 'old' 2.2 I-DTEC. After 3k miles, my CR-V is showing a trip computer average of 35.6 MPG, although I would note that the first 2.5k miles were all very short, local journeys. What I've found is that, when driven within the national speed limits, the 2.0 litre petrol/auto is quite a surprising thing from an economy perspective, easily returning 40mpg on any sort of a longer run. Today, I travelled 97 miles, covering the first 30 miles on the M4, then the remainder on A and B-roads. Although I travelled outside of rush hour, I had to navigate notorious traffic 'blackspots' such as Swindon (which was fine, albeit a lot of roundabouts), Oxford (where there was the usual 3 mile queue on the A34 approaching the M40) and lastly Aylesbury. That meant that there was quite a bit of stop start during the journey, which inevitably reduced the final economy figure. The end result - driving without much thought about economy - was 42.3mpg. That seems to be pretty typical, although I've managed 44.1mpg on the same journey when really trying. At one point on the journey today, about 50 miles in and prior to the A34 traffic jam, the computer was showing an achieved MPG of 46.5mpg! I'm very, VERY, pleased with the economy which is far better than I expected. When added to the smooth and quiet drive, and the cost saving on purchase price over the diesel, you might say that I'm pretty happy with my CR-V choice... What have other owners managed for either I-DTEC or i-VTEC? - - - Updated - - - @DeviateDefiant / @staff - the gremlins are back - for some reason this thread has been posted twice! And since I'm using my iMAC I know I didn't hit the 'submit' button twice! Could you delete one of them please?
