  1. 1G Problems & Issues
    This is a bit long, but bear with me. I'm driving my second RL now, a 2012, which replaced a 2010, both purchased new. Having had a prior RL gives me a pretty good frame of reference for vehicle performance. I also drive a pretty reproducible route, mostly to and from work, and my gas mileage...
  2. 1G Exterior
    Currently, I have no cap. Getting about 22 mpg highway. When towing 15 foot, 2800 lb travel trailer (not a pop-up) I get about 9 - 10 mpg highway. The camper is not very aerodynamic and acts like a sail. The question is: has anyone else had this issue, and if so, did adding a cap noticeably...
  3. Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    I drive about 300 miles per week, mostly rural coastal Texas roads at 60-70mph with some city driving. My 08 RTL has about 130K miles. I use lowest octane for normal driving and 91 when pulling our travel trailer. I have consistently gotten high 16s low 17s mpg in normal driving. We were...
  4. 1G Problems & Issues
    So, I have an issue hat I can't resolve on my own. I did an A136 on my RTS back in Aug./ Sept. Everything went really well except I couldn't reach the trans. fill bolt. Short stubby arms. In Oct. I had new tires and new struts installed all the way around. Since then my mileage has dropped...
  5. Eastern Canada Owners
    Great to find your forum! I picked up my brand new 2010 Honda Ridgeline yesterday. I really like how it drives. I will have to get used to a bit worse gas mileage I think - I can already start to see the gauge moving. I drove a 2006 Nissan Murano before this. Two questions to begin: - When...
  6. Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    I went to honda today to have them help me figure out why I am getting such bad gas mileage on my 07 RTS. I get on average 13mpg and I mostly drive freeway. I scheduled an appointment at the dealership in Lynnwood Washington. I got there and they told me they could not find my appointment. So...
  7. Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    I heard that someone had removed their propeller shaft because it had got bent and found it improved his gas mileage by about 5 mpg (or maybe a few litres/100km). Anyone heard about this? Basically then you have a front wheel drive vehicle. I was going to do it but thought to wait until winter...
  8. Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    My RTL is less than 4 mos old, around 3,500 miles on it. I normally get no more than 15-16mpg. I drive mostly around our rural town, lots of getting on and off of big highways between towns in the area, but these are short highway stints. I expected at least 17-19mpg. I'm pretty easy on the...
  9. Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    I used to have one of those Ridgelines that always got between 18-21 mpg. I could easily get 400 miles out of a tank. These days I can barely get 300. The low fuel light goes on at about 275. I'm currently on winter tires that get a little less mileage than the originals but when I go back to...
