What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Honda Civic MPG

Honda Civic Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2013 4dr Sedan 197-hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual FWD This one is odd. I travel down to Florida a lot, on a 300-400 mile trip I am between 35-40. Mixed driving I have never gone below 32.4. City driving I once saw it go down to 29.1. I am sure if I drive it like I stole it these figures would drop, but then few drive like this. I will say if you if you light up the four lights on the VTEC you will knock a couple of miles a gallon off your mileage instantly and it will take a while to get back.
2012 4dr Sedan 140-hp 1.8L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Delivers good fuel economy, even better than the old model despite having a larger displacement engine. About 27-28 mpg in mostly stop and go driving, and 33-35 mpg in highway.
2011 4dr Sedan 140-hp 1.8L I4 5-sp automatic FWD 36 MPG on highway
2010 4dr Sedan 140-hp 1.8L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Very good. Get a true 36 mpg on interstate doing a sustained 75 mph.
2010 4dr Sedan 140-hp 1.8L I4 5-sp manual FWD I consistently get between 7 and 7.5L per 100 km which is about 32.5 MPG(US). I also own a Toyota Tundra, so the savings on fuel almost pay for the civic itself.
2009 4dr Sedan 197-hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual FWD The Si still gets rather good fuel economy, even with a much beefier motor than the other models.
2009 4dr Sedan 140-hp 1.8L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Superb fuel economy. The Civic gets 1.5 liter mileage on the highway (40+ with AC in my experience) and excellent mileage in the city (30+ MPG). It does this without the anemic hybrid performance or the inconveniences of a diesel engine.
2009 4dr Sedan 197-hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual FWD I realize that the EPA rated this car as having a city mpg of 21, but even when I drive like a bat out of hell, I get at least 23mpg. Yes, it uses premium. Now, this may seem like a total disaster from Honda. 23mpg? From a Civic? On premium? Before you judge, I encourage you to research other vehicles in its class - be sure to specify Si trim. Also research other cars capable of a 0-60 time under 7 seconds. Considering those fuel economies, the Si is quite fuel efficient. Remember to compare apples to apples. The Si isn't as fuel efficient as a regular Civic, but it isn't a regular civic, either.
2009 4dr Sedan 110-hp 1.3L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD It ranks just below the Prius for MPG. My son who bought a 2008 Civic Hybrid says he is getting better than rated MPG. I am trading in a 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid because the city MPG is not anywhere near what I was led to believe.
2009 4dr Sedan 110-hp 1.3L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD Getting around 40 MPG combined 60/40 Hwy/City; more if I go easy on the gas pedal.

2007 2dr Coupe 197-hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual FWD Takes premium fuel. To really get going, you need to rev the engine high... uses gas to do so.
2006 4dr Sedan 110-hp 1.3L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD Poorer than the Prius.
2006 4dr Sedan 140-hp 1.8L I4 5-sp automatic FWD EPA was 50 MPG (IMP Gal) i have never done better than 41.3 MPG.
2006 4dr Sedan 140-hp 1.8L I4 5-sp automatic FWD Advertised as 50 MPG/Gal (Imp) best we ever got was 42 MPG, I asked when we got the car new what the "real" gas milage was and salesman swore it would get 50 MPG?!?!
2004 4dr Sedan 93-hp 1.3L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD With the things it gave up to the Prius (cargo utility, rear space), it should surpass the Prius in mileage but actually came up short (as did the Insight).
2003 4dr Sedan 140-hp 1.8L I4 5-sp automatic FWD We only get about 30 mpg compared with 42 mpg in our 2008 Prius.
