TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Honda Accord

Honda Accord Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 We start with the downfall of the first Honda Accord Hybrid: it failed to deliver the mpg people expected from a hybrid. EPA ratings of 24 mpg city, 32 mpg highway were well above the regular V6's 18/26, but not much better than the four-cylinder's 21/31. Genius wasn't needed to discover the root cause: Honda had paired a 16-horsepower electric motor with a 240-horsepower V6 (for a combined 253--the two didn't climax together). Quite simply, the electric motor was too small--it couldn't power the car on its own--and the 3.0-liter gasoline engine was too large (if able to deactivate three cylinders while cruising). Honda hasn't made the same mistake again. The new Honda Accord Hybrid joins a far stronger, 166-horsepower electric motor with a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine for a combined 196 horsepower. For the latter, Honda modified its new, significantly more efficient "Earth Dreams" engine to run, like Ford's and Toyota's hybrids, on the Atkinson-cycle (the intake valves remain open for the first bit of the compression stroke). Honda's big idea isn't with the motor or the engine, though, but in how they are connected to the front wheels. There's no conventional stepped automatic transmission this time around. Nor is the transmission a planetary gearset CVT, as in Ford and Toyota hybrids. Nor is it a belt-and-pulleys CVT, as in the Honda Civic Hybrid. Instead, the new transmission barely warrants the term. It's a one-speed. You won't find a one-speed transmission in any car powered by a conventional engine because a single ratio would be either way too tall for performance at low speeds or way too short for efficiency at high speeds. A conventional engine is only powerful at high rpm but only efficient at low rpm. For acceptable performance and efficiency, a transmission must be able to shift gears to put the engine at whatever rpm is appropriate for the current task (accelerating or cruising). In contrast, electric cars DO tend to have single-speed transmissions, as their motors deliver acceptable efficiency and power over a much wider range. Given that the new electric motor is strong enough to accelerate the Accord on its own, Honda lets it do this up to 43 mph. At that point the fixed transmission ratio is a good match for the gasoline engine, and a clutch engages to connect it to the wheels. (At lower speeds the engine only comes on as needed to charge the battery pack.) Brilliant in its simplicity, this single-speed design dramatically reduces internal friction and weight. The payoff: the new Accord Hybrid is rated 50/45, vs. the Fusion Hybrid's 44/41, the Camry Hybrid's 40/38, and the regular Accord's 27/36. In suburban driving the trip computer reported averages from 38.5 to 54.8, and 43 overall for the week (tying the MKZ Hybrid). I found it fairly easy to crack 50, spectacular for a midsize sedan. see full Honda Accord review
Honda Accord Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
Some people used to buy cars with manual transmissions because of their superior fuel economy. The tables have turned in the past decade, and automatics now tend to be at least as efficient as manuals. Also, when paired with the manual transmission the Accord's V6 loses its fuel-saving cylinder-deactivation feature and spins faster in top gear. So while the V6 with automatic manages EPA ratings of 21 mpg city, 32 highway, the manual does much worse, just 18 city and 28 highway. The trip computer average was 21 for my week with the car (with a one mpg bump from some highway driving the last day). Not awful, but I've seen better from some larger, more powerful, all-wheel-drive cars. The Hyundai manages about the same, 18/27. People who buy either car with a manual transmission do so entirely because they're more involving and consequently more fun to drive. see full Honda Accord review

Great fuel economy. I have the V6 and I usually average between 28 and 29 mpg overall. I do mostly highway driving and some suburban roads. And I'm usually doing about 70-80 mph on the highway, so you can do even better if you were to be driving 55-60 mph. see full Honda Accord review

Given the size of the car, particularly the interior room, the 30+ highway MPG is impressive. I consider anything over 30 highway to be economical enough for me. Another benefit is that around-town mileage is still decent, 26-27 mpg. see full Honda Accord review

The Accord has gained enough weight that their engines no longer return the exceptional MPGs of the preivous model. Honda refuses has no 6 gear transmissions which should help. Fuel economy is average at best. Would never achieve 40mpg as I did before. see full Honda Accord review

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Mazda Mazda3

Mazda Mazda3 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 Ever since gas guzzling rotary engines almost put Mazda out of business in the 1970s, fuel economy has been a company weakness. The 2013 Mazda3 with a 167-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and five-speed automatic transmission managed only 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway in the EPA's tests. (The same engine with a manual transmission did even worse, 20/28.) The 2014 with a new SKYACTIV 184-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and six-speed automatic transmission fares much better, 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. A $1,600 Tech Package (on the tested car) adds a capacitor-based regenerative braking system that bumps these ratings to 28/38. Quite impressive for a large, fairly powerful four-cylinder engine. The i's 155-horsepower 2.0-liter engine does a bit better still, 30/40, but anyone who cares about driving will gladly trade a 2-3 mpg to pick up 29 horsepower. In my real-world, sub-freezing suburban driving, the trip computer reported a two-way average around 40 mpg when I drove with a feather-light right foot. Push the car harder and high-20s to mid-30s happen. The Focus also manages 27/37 in the EPA's tests, but wasn't quite as efficient as the Mazda in my real-world driving. Others including the 23/35 Dodge Dart GT and 21/29 Kia Forte SX don't come close. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

2014 4dr Hatch 184-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Even with the 2.5L 'S' Option, the Mazda SkyActiv tech gives the Mazda3 a very impressive 28/39MPG. The 2.0L standard option gives 31/42. That's pretty standard in most new cars, however the performance for that economy is well above average. Good engines, these are. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

2012 4dr Hatch 155-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I drive it on the highway at a constant speed of about 78 with the cruise control on, for my daily commute . Very little traffic on my commute, and speed limit is 70. I get about 33 mpg, or 380 miles per tank. I've found that long-range runs of an hour or more seems to burn out the gunk, and I have better fuel economy for the next week or two. I figure driving near 80 is killing the advertised 39 mpg with the Skyactiv engine. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

While reviews are mixed, the Skyactiv engine delivers as promised for me. With over 70% city/suburb driving, I've yet to average under 30mpg (odo/pump). Set the cruise control at 65-70 and > 40mpg is easy on a flat highway. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Fuel economy has been OK. I usually do a 50/50 mix and in good weather, I get in the high 7s/100km or about 30 MPG. In the cold weather, it's been closer to 9L/100km or about 26 MPG. Strangely, it's about the same economy I got with my 99 Civic w/ 4 spd auto. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
