2008 Honda Civic Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 4dr Sedan 110-horsepower 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. see full Honda Civic review

The Si still gets rather good fuel economy, even with a much beefier motor than the other models. see full Honda Civic review
2009 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed 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. see full Honda Civic review
2009 4dr Sedan 110-horsepower 1.3L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Getting around 40 MPG combined 60/40 Hwy/City; more if I go easy on the gas pedal. see full Honda Civic review
2009 4dr Sedan 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
17mpg if you use all OE specification fluids and drive short trips around town. I get 32mpg with Amsoil full synthetic with cruise control at 65mph. 24mpg for mixed (normal). It *requires* premium. The K20Z3 uses multi-port fuel injection (not DI) with a static compression ratio of 11.0:1. If you put lower grade fuel in, you'll not only have missed the point of the car - you'll also make the engine eat itself from the inside out. see full Honda Civic review

CVT FWD
Driving the speed limit in mixed city suburban driving it is a gaurenteed 43 mpg. The feel and drivability are special given the torque addition of the electric assist motor. The car experience encourages a more intelligent driver. see full Honda Civic review

Takes premium fuel. To really get going, you need to rev the engine high... uses gas to do so. see full Honda Civic review
