Tracking the Fuel Economy of Cars.com's 2013 Honda Civic, 2013 Subaru BRZ

IMG_2837

Finally, after 7,000 miles, a staffer took the 2013 Honda Civic long-term tester on an extended highway drive and proved, yes, we can hit its 39 mpg highway rating. A calculated fill-up average of 42.2 mpg on a tank crushed the previous 35.94 mpg; the record fill-up's trip computer mileage read 41.1 mpg.

The highest average tank was backed up by a 39.01 mpg tank. Our 2013 Civic's primarily urban and suburban driving has kept the compact sedan from showcasing what type of fuel economy it can return on the highway — until now.

Meanwhile, our 2013 Subaru BRZ logged 2,600 miles this month and sees no change in maximum and minimum averages since our previous update.

Said months ago that the Civic would get over 40MPG once you get it on the open highway!!!!

I got 44MPG on a 80 mile drive.

I drive 100+ miles every workday because of where I live and where I work. I drive highway speeds (75 MPH) for most of the drive.

I routinely get 41 or 42 MPG using regular unleaded gas. I tried using the ethanol blend of gas but was never able to get over 38 MPG.

I love my car. I pay less for gas and have a great car to drive.
