I'm just on the 4th tank of gas on my '10 Fit Sport AT and so far the average is 36.1. Hope it stays that good.

Over the 18 months I have had the Fit I have kept track of each tank and the average is 33.57 mpg. Im happy with that I would say.

I love it on my civic hybrid. Is your jazz a 1.3l also?

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.

can you guys post your speed. is this average? 35-45 mpg is pretty high to me.
it'll be nice if my car can average that high. my car has 1,500 + miles as of this moment.
around my area, (chino hills, ca.) I only get 27-28 mpg due to hilly terrrain.
plus, i'm pretty much always 5 miles above the speed limit within the city.
I do get an average of 30 - 32 mpg @ 70-80 mph, this is nothing to complain about since this is very good compare to my evo.

I agree, 35-45 strains credibility for an AT unless driving is nothing but flat farm country without traffic. Your mileage sounds just about spot on.

I started logging fuel consumption religiously after getting the mileage meter software upgraded in December. Over 13 tanks of gas, 80/20 city/highway, I'm averaging 28.25 mpg; high 33.6, low 24.71 (cold weather, 100% city, playing with full throttle shifts). This includes a fair amount of coasting in neutral and shutting the engine off at stoplights that last more than 30 seconds, as well as a (generally) light foot on the throttle and lots of hills. Over 13 tanks, the average discrepancy between calculated and displayed mileage is 0.6 mpg after the software upgrade.

Filled up 3 times in my 2010 Fit Sport with auto. Mostly highway driving...have had the car 2 weeks. I did not use the car computer to calculate...I did it the old fashioned way

1st tank: 35.5 mpg
2nd tank: 37.2 mpg
3rd tank: 38.4 mpg

I drive conservatively...60 -65MPH...not too spirited. Hoping as the weather (eventually) warms up I can hit 40 mpg.

selden, i've been doing the same thing except shutting it down at the stop lights. at least now i know i'm not alone.

crash001, thanks for the suggestion bro. I keep mine @ 36 (cold) max. At 40 psi, i think it's already too high. although, my tires always looks low at 36, I have to consider 8 to 10 psi increase - depending on the temperature of road. you're looking at 44 to 46 psi (hot) which is beyond the maximum pressure the tire can hold.
another reason is traction, low resistance tire and 185 width... not very good in my book, all of these will multiply at 44-46 psi.
don't get me wrong, the stock tires are good for their intended purpose. but, there has to be something better out there.

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.
impressive.

finally got a tank at 28mpg, and 85% of that was highway. had a high mpg of 42, but that was all highway, driving about 45mph average due to weather and traffic conditions. overall, i have been heavily disappointed with the gas mileage of the fit. on average, it's getting 24-26 mpg, whether my wife or i drive it.

i'm disappointed because though i'm not the most economical driver, this is 106hp pushing around 2700 lbs. i had an E30 M3 that got 27mpg with 70% city, 30% highway and that motor had .8L more displacement, double the max power, and was designed in the early 80's.

i also have another car that makes 5 times the power, pushes 3300 lbs, and gets 24 mpg combined when driven with civility and economy.

It really makes me wonder what is going on with the AT GD3 Fits and the big split of good and bad mpg. My Fit has the same "horrible mpg at all times" syndrome as yours no matter how carefully and slowly I drive it. I can drive my girlfriend's Scion tC and easily get better mpg without even trying to drive slow than I do driving slow in my Fit. It really is too bad that the issue is always ignored by Honda/mechanics, or is passed off as not driving properly to attain good fuel economy.

I wouldn't start comparing the tC with the Fit, it's not meant to compete with it. Although if the Fit has any direct competitor the closest thing I can think of is the Scion xD. I actually ignored the whole idea of buying the xD when I recently bought my Fit because I felt more comfortable with my Honda dealer plus it didn't come to my head at the time that the xD's specs were so close to the Fits I guess my problem there was when ever I looked at the xD and the blunt nose of it, it never gave me the feeling it was Toyota's Fit competition. I am kind of curious to take a xD on a test drive now, more or less to re-affirm my decision to buy the Fit. I know there's the Nissan Versa too, but after owning a Sentra SE-R and a 280Z, I don't want to deal with another Nissan/Datsun. My experience with Honda's & Toyota's has been better than with Nissan. The Versa cuts a lot of corners too compared to the Fit.

his point is that the AT fit has a good chance of getting worse economy than cars that are heavier and more powerful, not that the the two compete.

figured i'd chime in back in on this now. i still drive 50/50 and by that i mean usually nice half the time and like an idjit half the time

but overall i usually have averaged in my 3 years of owning this car 31-35 mpg. i have found that on the interstate my best tank averages were on 1000+ mile round trips which i usually hit something around 40 mpg for the whole thing. i wasn't exactly driving mrs. daisy either...but i also drove 'em w/o ac on except sporadically.

but from all these forums it does seem weird that some auto's aren't getting all that good of mileage

I was pushing 38 MPG til Winter. Filled up at Costco today with a Total of 9400 Miles. Worst tank 31 MPG. Best tank 43.84 MPG. The trip home from St. Louis shows 43 MPG, but the display is still a bit optimistic.
