  • 2007 GX gas mileage < 20 mpg?

    Hello fellow GXers, I purchased a 2007 GX in July, and for regular hops around town clock about 20 "mpg". The refuel light routinely comes to life at about 115

    As you said, Sam, this is a worse case scenario. Short hops don't allow the engine to warm fully, although 10 miles should do it. Probably a lot of stop and go

      Thank you, Lee, that is helpful data. Still, it does make me wonder about the EPA 30mpg City estimate! -Sam ... From: [email protected] on behalf of

        Thank you, Curtis, I have wondered whether the NGV mileage may be even more sensitive to "cold" operation than conventional ICs. - Sam ... From:

          Sam, 20MPG seems pretty low, it most be as you say worst case, I wouldn't worry about your car, if you got over 40MPG on a trip everything must be in good

            Dear Sam, I've put approx. 20K miles on my '07 GX since May -- almost all of it highway driving -- and I average about 37 mpg. Some of it is city driving and I

              I have a 07 and started out at about 20 around town and after putting a few thousand on it now get about 26 and in the 40's on a trip. sam_landsberger

                  Sam...I drive an '00 GX and easily get in the mid to high 30's city and mid to high 40's highway depending on my speed. How do I do it? I'm sort of a

                    Great advise! I can't wait until Honda finally puts a fuel computer in the Civic. I doubt we'll see it in this itteration of the car, but wouldn't be surprised

                      If you look carefully, the pumps always say '100%' at the end of the cycle, regardless of pressure. There's really no way to know exactly how good a fill you

                        I typically get about 30 MPG and fill up at 180 miles. You must have a leak as 20 MPG seems way low. Alan ... From: [email protected]

                          I haven't seen the '08 GX mileage ratings yet, but I know they rolled down the regular Civic to 26mpg under the new EPA rating standard. I imagine that the new

                            I don't think you can make a Civic get only 20mpg no matter how badly you drive it. If there's nothing wrong with the car, then I would suspect a problem in

                              FYI...Maybe not in CA, but here in AZ we have pressure gauges on the pumps. The only one that doesn't is CE, and I quit using them a long time ago. So it is
