Question about 2007 Honda CR-V

2007 honda cr-v gets lousy mileage

My car is getting 10-12 mpg per gallon in city driving, well below the 22 mpg advertised on the sales sticker. the dealership said there is nothing wrong with the car and by some kind of magic during the summer returned the car showing it got 17-20 mpg. I don't believe it. Corporate ignores me. What do I do?

Hi, sounds excessive to me. For comparison my 2003 2litre petrol gives average 29mpg no matter how or where I drive it. You need to check over 4 to 5 tank re-fills (don't count the first tank-full)
Just a guess, but is the 4 wheel drive permanently engaged?

I have got a 2005 Equinox and I'm getting horrible fuel mileage ! Like 7mpg in the city and 17 to 21 mpg on the highway , I've put new tires , battery , original equipment spark plugs and wires and still...


There are many things that could conspire to rob mileage. My first thought was possible transmission slippage. Although your city rating is horrible, the highway mileage is just a little off. 23-25 hwy is correct, 23 for lousy doped California gas, and 25 elsewhere. My guess is that you have slippage but above 45 mph, you are still getting advantage once the converter lock takes effect in overdrive. Just slippage until you reach that lock point.
Start with a full diagnostic of all stored codes in the ODB II computer, both for the engine and the transmission, then an evaluation of your transmission from a good shop.
Good luck, the Equinox is a darned good car,and worth the effort.

I have a 2001 isuzu rodeo and my gas needle is broke, how much would it usually cost to get fixed, how many highway miles per gallon and city miles per gallon please?


You would need to check with a local garage for repair prices.
To find your average mileage, fill up the tank, write down the mileage, then do it again at around 200 miles. Divide the mileage traveled by the number of gallons used. I would recommend filling up after you have used about 8 or 9 gallons to prevent running out of gas. You can't go by the federal mpg numbers because everybody drives differently.

Low gas mileage city and hiway @ 4-5 MPG below MSRP sticker data of 15 and 21MPG on a NEW 2013 Silverado. 2000 miles on odometer and mileage not improving.


is this calculated mileage or what the estimated mileage is showing on the dash. Have you checked to see what you get on just the freeway?

What are your driving habits like?

How is your tire pressure?

Do you make a lot of short trips?

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003


One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

How many miles do u get for a full tank of gas on a v8


It just depends on your tank size. You probably get about 15 -18 miles per gallon. 13 gallon tank would be around 200 miles. 15 gallon tank around 232 miles.

The isuzu rodeo is supposed to make an average of 18 mpg and i´m getting 12 mpg


Driving habits can cause the average mpg to be lower.
Also, note that highway mpg are higher than the city mpg.
And, the posted average mileage is no guarantee that your car
will get that good mileage per gallon

That being said, it's a good idea to have tuneups performed
periodically, or to have an engine analysis performed at your dealer
or local auto service center so that you can determine what parts
need to be replaced to get optimal mileage per gallon.

Good luck to you.

2009 Saturn Vue Hybrid 1400 getting 18 mpg instead of avg of 28


Do you normally accelerate quickly from stopped? You can increase your cars mileage by cutting down on rapid starts and stops. A comparable Honda Accord Hybrid rated at a higher 25city 37 hwy MPG rating achieves less than 22mpg when driven HARD
