Once you start cruising and you don't have a heavy foot like me....honda's efficiency is mind-blowing. I've gotten up to 35 mpg...but 37? That's awesome!

35-40 MPH with a average speed of over 85 MPH on a 1200 mile trip... Our weaker Vtec alows for amazing gas mileage... if we had a smaller displacement it would be over 40 easily

I've gotten as high as 39 while moving my daughter to/from her co-op job. It'scloser to 30 during normal day-to-day driving.

Nothing magic, just one time driving that trip, the weather was nice, and there wasplenty of speed traps(cops wereEVERYWHERE). So a nice constant 65mph for 500 miles without stopping. Switch off the testosterone, sit back & relax even when the traffic goes down to 60 or 55.

If there wasn't 400 pounds of my daughter's junk in the car I bet it would have broke 40mpg.

Mine's a 5-speed, which should do better than an auto. Don't know which type you have...
