So, I was testing out best conditions for best fuel efficiency and I was able to get 44 mpg. Stayed in comfort mode, cruised on highway, kept AC off and drove as smooth as possible.

I normally drive in sport mode with gear shifter in S, and consistently get 27 mpg…curious what you guys are getting?

I'm in sport constantly and unfortunately only getting around 21 mph atm. Not really highway driving though. On the highway I'm seeing like 25 or so.
Yeah I feel you, it’s hard not to wanna drive the heck outta this thing. But I love that this is still capable of decent fuel efficiency if you aren’t driving spiritedly.

7.5 miles is not enough data to determine what you fuel efficiency is. You could coast down a mountain and 70 mpg over 5 miles if you wanted.
Anyway, I'm struggling to get over 33 mpg in my A-SPEC CVT with premium fuel.

I got 38.9 MPG on a 200 mi drive yesterday - overwhelmingly highway, comfort mode, loaded cabin and trunk, A/C on, 6th gear and cruise control (standard, not adaptive). This was my first out-of-town trip with the Integra. Most of my other driving is just around town for fun - literally joyrides, and I was averaging 30 MPG.

I was skeptical of some of the MPG figures folks were getting, but this is fantastic.

I am not yet an Integra owner, but I believe the 44 MPG number could be achieved on a long trip because I've almost matched that in my V6 Accord on a 150 mile trip.


I wouldn't normally do this, but I was tasked to take an elderly couple on a 150 mile trip (75 miles each way, so elevation and wind speed were not much of a factor) and figured that (rather than getting yelled at for driving too fast like I normally do) I'd see what MPG the Accord was capable of. I had gotten 35 MPG on a prior, shorter trip with this couple on board. This time, I was going for 40 MPG.

1. I drove the 2015 Accord with Econ mode on
2. the trip was 95+% highway (Garden State Parkway, NJ, close to sea level)
3. I never went above 62 MPH (100 km/h), Avg speed on the highway was 60 MPH
4. When I needed to come to a stop, I avoided using the brakes until I needed to, foot was off the gas way before any red lights, and I did get a few.
5. The tires I had, were the ones that came on the car, GoodYear Assurance Fuel Max - (terrible tires for everything except getting good MPG)
6. When I had to accelerate to highway speeds from a stop, I did so at a rate that would result in 0 - 60 in 2 to 3 minutes, whenever possible (safe)
7. The car had roughly 25,000 miles on the odometer during this trip
8. Outside temp was 55-58 degrees, cloudy, very light winds, AC was off, windows were closed.

This resulted in 41.1 MPG (car computer calculated), in a 3.5L V6 (VCM equipped, which means it was running on 3 cylinders most of the trip) Accord Sedan with 6 speed automatic transmission.

Driving like this is unrealistic, but it shows that it can be done. I would bet that had I kept speeds around 50 MPH, I would have seen 45 MPG.
