2013 Honda Civic Long-Term Mileage Update


Our focus this month is solely on our 2013 Honda Civic long-term tester. The 2013 Subaru BRZ we've been driving for almost 14,000 miles is on its way out the door and will get a final wrap-up in the coming weeks. For now, let's check in on the Civic.

Continuous high mileage fill-ups over the last month have bumped the Civic's average from 31.93 mpg to 32.49 mpg — the Civic is rated at 28/39/32 mpg city/highway/combined. Our drivers and their light feet averaged 35.79 mpg in October.


In addition to the calculated fill-up numbers we list above, our tracking regimen records trip computer readouts for each fill-up. The Civic's accuracy for three consecutive fill-ups in October is surprisingly accurate, with as little as .08 mpg and as much as .59 mpg difference between our calculations and what the car displays.

Mine has 9,000 miles and I have never gotten below 32MPG on any tank. Interestingly, got the worst MPG while using the Econ button.

Also I refuel around 450 miles. I could probably go over 500 miles range as there are a little over 2 gals still left in the tank.
