What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2004 Acura TSX

2004 Acura TSX Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2005 4dr Sedan 200-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
I get about 23mpg in the city and about 30 on the highway. On long trips averaging 75 or better (yes I speed), I still get 30!
2005 4dr Sedan 200-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Getting any where from 24 MPG in rush hour commute with AC on to 31~32 MPG on roadtrips. Averaging better than 26 MPG over 80+ thousand miles in predominately city driving.

28 mpg average, 32 hwy. What more do you need?
2004 Acura TSX Real Gas Mileage: Cons

the fact you "should" use premium gas makes it expensive to run as a 4 cylinder car
2004 4dr Sedan 200-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
With my admittedly brick-like right foot, I'm lucky to get 24 MPG in mixed driving, which isn't stellar for a 6MT four-cylinder. (With California premium gas, no less.)
