What are you all getting? I'm about a tank and a half into existence, and getting 23.1mpg, average speed 28mph mix of Arlington suburbs and highway.

I drive pretty conservatively, 5mph over generally, maybe 10mph over on the highway if that keeps up with traffic. Im also pretty easy on the throttle. My CR-V averaged 26.5 lifetime, and was rated 20/28.

Overall, Im pretty happy so far. I wouldn't be surprised to hit 24mpg after the motor fully breaks in and I drop in 0w20 Pennzoil Ultra Platinum.

I am at 21 mpg (11.2 l per 100 km), same here - driving fairly conservatively, 50/50 mix of hw / city, 2016 MDX with ~ 1,500 miles (~ 2,500 km). The vehicle reports fuel economy very accurately, I verified at the gas station. Also I have engine idle start/stop feature which shuts the engine while stopped at the lights etc.

I do mostly city (~75% @ 55 mph) and some highway (~25% @ 80 mph). Getting around 16 mpg that way. Just finished a 400 mile trip and did 26 mpg @ 80 mph. This is with music constantly playing and about 3000 miles on the odometer currently.

that is what my car says. I didn't calculate by hand. my average MPH is like 40. I am about 75% highway. I rarely go above 3000 rpm. For longer highway drive, I switch to S mode and use 9th gear. during my last roadtrip to Yellow Stone, I think I got like 28 mpg for the trip.

I am at about 20-21mpg 50/50 mix, same as my 2014 Odyssey used to get. The only time I got 24-26mpg is when I drove from Lake Tahoe to SF mostly downhill.

Getting 26 is pretty impressive, however I too can't see that happening in a mixed driving situation.
