We have a 2010 fit with auto and a non sport. We are getting 39 mpg on the average. Have a question I would like to remove the stock wheels and tires and install wider tires with aftermarket rims 15 or 16'' by 7 inch wide. What size rim and tires do you guys have on your fit and what kind of mpg's are you getting? Thanks for the input

Hmm. ... what am i doing wrong? 2008 AT Sport, mixed driving on 205/50/16 toyo proxes4 tires, about 60/40 city/freeway. Costco Regular (87 i think) first time got 22.5 last tank got just over 20 mpg. Not smashing to hard but do keep it at the speed limit of 65. That's worse than my Sentra! !!

From what I understand the 2008 fits were lower in hp and with that size tire on it will be heavier n more tire on the road which means more friction. My guess since its a 2008 with less hp will take more fuel n work harder to turn the 205/50/16 my guess anyway, Right now I still have the stock tires on which is 275/65/15 n mine is a 2010 fit automatic n I get an average of 39 mpg. My average speed is 65 to 75 mph here in Az. I am looking to buy a set of 4 alum 16x6 to 16x7 rims n tires will be 195/55/16. Hoping that will not kill my mpg's to much which I do not think that it will with only 2 sizes wider. I also want to install a k&n air filter to help it breathe better to help with alittle more power.

I drive a 2015 Fit EX with 15,000 miles on it and I'm getting 36 mpg running Shell Regular. I did notice a big difference if I don't run the AC. With AC I average 36-37 mpg per trip. If I cut the AC and open the windows it jumps to 39-40 mpg per trip.

My 2010 non-sport AT Fit gets about an average of 32 to 34 MPG I would say..

I don't know how accurate the Fit's mileage indicator is, but one time on a non windy day in NJ I drove the Fit for aprox 70 miles on the Garden State Parkway staying in the right lane, feathering the pedal, passing no one, never stopping, and keeping it at or below the 65 MPH speed limit. I had to ignore all the impatient drivers zooming past me at 75-80 MPH, but by carefully not accelerating much and keeping it within the limit this way I was able to coax the Fit's MPG indicator up to 52 MPGs!!

Hafta admit tho that this was just an experiment; I also am too impatient to drive like this alla time! (But if I had to? -I dunno...)

I did this experiment with my rental Ram 1500 Hemi.... since obviously it gets way worse mileage than the lil fit.


I decided for two whole tank fillups (1000miles) I would drive no more than 65mph on the expressway and always accelerate as to keep the car in ECO mode. With a 395hp hemi I was able to get a constant 26mph out of her!


driving 65 is great for fuel economy...but tough on practicality

2008 Fit Sport, last fillup was ~33 mpg on 80% highway driving.

Note: I usually set the cruise on 75 mph and the car is stock with 283,000 miles on it.

In Florida we can never turn off the AC, but we are still getting 37-38 mpg on the 2015 Fit EX

Just did a 4 hour drive on Alaska mountain roads driving on ice and hard pack snow. I was very easy on the gas pedal while climbing hills, no traffic. Made 37.4 mpg calculated and 39.3 on the dash meter. Much better than expected.

Mine is bone stock engine/exhaust-wise. Just filled up after exclusively city driving. I took it on the highway for 20 miles, and that's it. I still managed 29.4 gallons. Not too bad. My complete average is just shy of 30, because I rarely take long highway trips. Most of my driving is city and suburbs.

I own a 2013 base model (bone stock engine wise) with lowering springs, aftermarket shocks, 8lbs wheels from a mini cooper and a roof rack with Yakima cargo box which results an average of 30mpg combined. Not bad especially considering that I drive pretty aggressively on the highway and on back roads.

My new-to-me 2013 AT base has been getting around 40mpg hwy/21mpg City. Maybe next time I go for a safety inspection, I'll just have the auto shop change spark plugs and do a valve adjustment, see if that improves the City mpg any. Still a 30mpg average, but really want to up the City mpg up a few if possible.

Poor Mileage 2007 FIT Sport 5spd AT

OK, this is a mystery to me, and perhaps it might not be a mystery at all. Any and all insights would be appreciated before I have a mechanic take a crack at it.

My parents bought the car in 2006. From 2006 to 2014, the car accumulated all of 5,000 miles. The dealership in Monterey drove the car to San Francisco. This is the only time I know that the car was driven on a highway up to the end of 2014. All of the driving during this period was on the street and hills of San Francisco. I only drove the car a few times during this period. It was sluggish to accelerate, the AT hunted for gears constantly, and the mileage was only 15 to 16 mpg's in the city. When I turned on the circulation (not the AC) a compressor would kick in. Maintenance performed during this time period were a couple of service recalls and regular oil changes, mostly at Pennzoil.

When my mom passed away at the end of 2014, I replaced all the major fluids and ran fuel injector cleaner a couple of times. (When I had the fluids changed, I did not know what brands were used.) I started to drive this car on a regular basis. Mileage went up to 20 to 21 mpg's in driving around town. I was able to get the car on the highways around the Bay Area a few times, and the mileage on those trips went up to 26/27 mpg's. The driving experience improved, too. The AT didn't hunt. Acceleration off the line was smoother. The noise from the circulation and the compressor is still there.

When my dad passed away at the end of January this year, I realized that the brake fluid needed to be changed. And, since I didn't know what brands of fluid were used in the 2014 fluid change, I changed the coolant and AT as well. AT fluid is now Honda spec. Engine oil is Amsoil. I also swapped out the tires to Michelins and am happy to report a much calmer, smoother ride. The transmission is shifting smoother than previously. Overall, the car is now driving as I imagined it would and should. The noise from the circulation and the compressor is still there. The car now has 17,000 on the odometer, and less than 500 of those miles have been under highway conditions.

BUT... the mileage is still low. I am still getting only 20 mpg. Anecdotally, I see others getting mpg's under the same conditions more along the lines of 25 mpg's. What should I be checking for? Or are the conditions of SF (hills and stops signs) keeping my mpg's way down?
