Honda Element Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2011 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Sure wish I could get 30 MPG in this thing instead of 20 (though I have gotten 26 on long trips as long as I don't let my wife drive) see full Honda Element review
2005 4dr SUV 160-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual AWD
This is my only major gripe with the vehicle... I seem to get a consistent 22mpg, whether it is city driving, long flat highways, or mountains. If I go out of my way to drive conservatively, or use a medium-to-heavy foot with the aid conditioner, the difference is completely negligible... it's pretty much always 22mpg. see full Honda Element review

Wish it got better fuel economy, but what do you expect for a brick? see full Honda Element review

It stinks! The EX is a bit heavy which drags the MPG to 21/25. see full Honda Element review
