Just 4 tanks since new, all city driving apart from two 100 mile freeway trips, and every tank has been 29 mpg except one (with lots of freeway miles) at 33.

By the way, Jazz owners please convert your foreign gallons to US gallons as the US gallon is smaller than an Imperial gallon.

I got 32 for my first few tanks. I was driving real easy and slow. Highway driving in ST. Louis is as bad as city in the AM. This morning and yesterday for example, stop and go took me an hour to do 25 miles, all highway. Last few tanks have been 27, 29, 30. 27 was driving like a maniac all weekend, 29 moderate and 30 moderate.

I have had 51 trips to the gas station and over 11k miles of 80% city driving. I have kept records of each and every fillup and I get 27.3 mpg life time average as of this Sunday (03/30/08)

Just got my Fit on Saturday. I'll be posting my FE as soon as my tank needs refilling... I'm anxious to see how it does. No SG, just doing the math using the tripometer. So far it looks to be ~29 and I'm down to 1/4 tank.

Has anyone here made a comparison after using synthetic oil and/or better air filter (i.e., K&N)?

I did those two things on my 97 Civic and brought my avg mpg up from 32 to 35 mpg.

Live and work in Dallas right now...

my first 5 tanks got me 38.33, 31.84, 33.22, 34.11, and 31.77 mpg. I usually pump around 8-9 gallons. I wonder if gas brands matter? For some reason, I try to stick with Shell and Chevron. Also, I made a similar trip with the first and fourth tank ( Dallas to Houston to Dallas ), and I've gotten different mileage. The first tank was with the Honda tank, and the 4th was with Shell.

Anyhow, I'm getting great mileage I would like to say. I usually have the AC on the 2nd level, moderate pressure, and I usually let my car warm up before driving in the morning and afternoon.

PS. I usually carry between 30-40 lbs. in the back.

I lug around 3 people in the '09 fit sport driving both city and highways up and down the hills of ATL and I am averaging at 30-33mpg doing about 70-80mph.

The A/T shifts before 3k so my feet is pretty light on the gas.

I posted in another thread that I have been getting on average 43 - 44 mpg but my best so far was 45.1 about 2 weeks ago. I have 5963 miles on mine to date.

I've been getting crappy gas mileage. 22 mpg overall. I bought the Fit specifically for gas mileage, so this sucks! My friend's BMW 325i gets better gas mileage!

stop revving the thing to 5K and you will see better MPG.

lots of people on here just don't understand that how you drive
tells alot.
after 12 consecutive tanks i get 39 MPG.
other people can't get above 35 others 30 you 22.
if you want better MPG accelerate slower (2500RPM MAX) and don't go over 65 MPH. simply follow these rules and you will see good MPG.
oh and don't idle to long either.

not trying to bash anyone.
it's just that no one has looked at MPG since recently.
i to myself. but as the years past i got more aware
about my MPG and i adjusted my driving style.
man i used to fill my gas tank twice a week with my 5.0
what a gas guzzler that was.
never even knew what MPG it got. gas then was
89cents a gallon. so i didn't care. but now i do.

Pretty much gets 32-33 no matter how it is driven. I have gotten a tank of 36.6mpg mixed driving, which is pretty good for no messin with the car, or hypermiling crap, just driving it, pretty decent IMO

Around town is 33-38. Two road trips were 46 and 49, but that’s because I kept the speed down to 60. The car only has 1300 miles and the mileage will go down when Winter arrives for sure. This car loves flat roads and 55-60mph.

I get 33-35 mpg on almost every tank except long distance ones.

Long distance Louisiana to Florida averaged out to 41 mpg and i was rolling at 70 the entire way.

And if I just get stupid, I get about 25-26 mpg on a tank. But that's when I wanna use my paddleshifters and act all indy car...

I wonder if different States have more or less ethanol added to the gas?
I know the more they put in the less mileage you will get.
Mine gets 30mpg on every tankful.

I think it's constant at 10% but I could be wrong. As far as different tanks mpg's in different cities, I usually stick out to 33-35 but i do a combination of city and interstate driving.

But that's here in florida. In louisiana i did about the same mileage wise except i ran a bit higher since i never used the A/C...yea....

Respectfully, I have to disagree. Throttle position is far more important than how high you rev the engine. Yea, if you floor it all the way to 5k, you'll have crappy mileage. BUT, if your throttle position never goes past 50% and you shift in the power band (4500-5000 rpm), your mileage will not suffer.

I have a 2008 AT Base. If I manually shift at higher rpms, I consistently get 36 mpg. I now have 22K miles, and the worst tank of gas I've had in the last year was 32 mpg. I don't hypermile. I commute during rush hour and drive mixed with stop and go included. I drive 75 on the highway. I run stock tire pressures. BUT, I never take my throttle past the halfway point.
