2000 Honda Accord - Topped 40 mpg this week!

Honda Accord's are hardly the most economic vehicles when it comes to fuel savings, but I'm excited because after only a month of practicing hypermiling, I've managed 42.55 mpg on my last tank (630.8 miles on 14.826 gallons.) I guess I'm going to have to raise my goals. I wonder what will be possible when I finally get around to purchasing a scanguage?

That's awesome. Is it a manual or auto car?

Manual transmission. I've seen a few other 6th generation accords on here that have topped 40 but I'm still happy.

Are you hypermiling the Ridgeline too? It would be great to see what it can do as a 6-cylinder pick-up.

Re: 2000 Honda Accord - Topped 40 mpg this week!

Not on any regular basis because my wife drives that as her primary vehicle, but we are going out of town this week, so I might get a tank or two in to see what I can get. I don't know how I'll do hypermiling an AT though since I'm so used to my 5-speed. We'll have to see... I wonder if the all wheel drive will be a problem? I'll have to find out!

Great job. Again, go ahead and get the Scangauge. There's a lot more where that 42 came from.

Re: 2000 Honda Accord - Topped 40 mpg this week!

Awesome Jeffro! I just got a 2001 Accord LX yesterday and I'm excited to see what kind of potential it has. My friends laughed when I told them I wanted to try for 35 mpg on the first tank, so hearing that you got 42 has brought my spirits up!

Did you use some pretty aggressive hypermiling techniques or more basic?
