Fit Charlie, can you tell how you block the grill, and maybe show a pic? Thanks.

I get that but the difference is dramatic compared to other cars I've owned with similar curb weight and engine size (all M/T). I drive about 90% freeway, have since new (it's a 2010 Sport). It's rarely driven on weekends and I use cruise 99% of the time. On roads other than freeways, I get to top gear fairly quick but I"m not flooring it. In summer I get as much as 36 but usually 34. In winter it drops to about 30-32. It gets cold in Northern Ohio but rarely single digits.

Dang it! You got to my goal! What is your speed usually on the freeway? Granted I'm doing ~80mph most of the time (33mpg). I'd be down in ~65mph if I was getting 40mpg. Oh yeah my tires are at 36psi too. That's the max.

I use my ScanGauge2 religiously and I try to keep it at/around 20 tps. Doing so will typically show the driver getting 40 mpg real time.

the throttle position matters. mph is almost never a good indicator.




but, to answer your question, on the flat.... I typically find myself going 65 mph. down hills, I can do 80+ if the conditions are right. if I am lucky enough to find a big truck/suv to draft behind, I can easily go faster and maintain same mpg (target is 40) or take the chance to raise my avg #s for as long as I can draft behind the bigger truck/suv.

TIP:
when I go down a hill and see a uphill coming ... I try to get as much speed as possible, like say .... 80+ mph .... so when I do the hill climb, I have momentum on my side and I can slowly decrease my speed via the cruise control + and - buttons, and try to find that balance between a decent climb speed and not tanking the mpg's too much. so if 79 mph shows 29 mpg real time, ill try 78 mph. if that shows a bad mpg real time figure like say 30 mpg, ill try 77 mph and that may give me 31 mpg .... so on and so forth

I usually average 36 mpg in my Fit
Took a 30 mile trip, with 55 speed limit, and 1/2 of the trip was up and down 2 mountains.
Figure it would kill mpg.
Wrong! 44 mpg.
Used no gas coasting down the mountains.

Agreed with on all your points. When doing my driving, just about all the driving is at an elevation that doesn't change. Bout the only change is going over an overpass. I think the one thing that really makes a difference is that you're rolling on 16" tires right? I'm on 15"s.
