2006 Honda Civic Hybrid Actual Gas Mileage

Since I bought my 2006 Civic Hybrid in January, and it is supposed to have great gas mileage, I figured I’d post my MPG results. Yes, I track my gas mileage. Don’t blame me, blame my statistics-freak father.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with the real world gas mileage. The EPA rating is for 50MPG city, and 50MPG highway. I’m mostly doing highway miles, and I’m getting a little shy of 48MPG. You can tell when I’m driving the speed limit and when I’m speeding based on the ups and downs in this chart. What I really like most about the civic is its range. I get an average of 517 miles per tank of fuel. My Accord can only go about 400 miles per tank, and the boxster gets around 275.

If you drive a Civic or Prius – post your charts too!

TOTALS 8797 $2.63 $483.54 183.84 47.85

One last note – my previous cars got 21MPG and 27MPG. If I had driven those cars for the miles I’ve put on my Civic, I would have spent an extra $592.70 and $353.53 on fuel (not including the extra per-gallon charge for premium!)

    Personally, I don’t think it’s an altogether bad looking car.
    It would probably have had more appeal if it was a hatchback…….
