Despite having the keys to our 2013 Subaru BRZ three months before we picked up a 2013 Honda Civic long-term tester, the Civic's odometer is quickly catching that of the BRZ. Summer road trips in the Civic helped rack up 12,217 miles in seven months, while the BRZ sits at 13,061 miles after 10 months of ownership.

The Civic is delivering great gas mileage on long highway drives: We've recorded a best tank of 42.83 mpg, exceeding its 39 mpg highway rating. The BRZ is also able to exceed its highway mileage estimates but hasn't had a chance to stretch its legs on the highway much during the last month; its best tank rating remains 35.94 mpg.

I just got 42MPG too after a 450 mile road trip. Even got 50MPG for some stretches. I was driving 70-80MPH.

My lowest ever was 32MPG which coincidentally happened when I had the ECON button pressed. Otherwise I have gotten 37-42MPG. I don't use it any longer.

This is an awesome car!!!!!!

Hi Joe. What is the speed you or anyone of the editor recommend driving a car to achieve the MPG?
