I purchased this car because it was advertised as a fuel efficent vehical. They advertised 31 mpg in city driving 38-42 highway. I have had the car for 4 months. Never used the air conditioner. Drove moderately and am getting 19 mpg. I guaged it by the number of gal. Pumped not from gas guage in car. I have reciepts and a log of all miles and gallons put into the car. The dealer tested it and said it was getting 26.3 driving 10-30 mph. I am unable to get even that which is a substancial amount different than the amount advertised. I am dissapointed and frustrated with the performance and would like to notify Honda.
