  1. Fuel Economy (lack of mpg)

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    First, I love my new 2019 RTL AWD. I have 200 miles on it. My problem is the computer says I’m only averaging 13.5 mpg. I am not an aggressive driver and I am not gunning it around town. I took it out for a 30 mile trip on the freeway and kept it between 65-70 and still 13.5 mpg. I don’t smell...
  2. Intermittent Starting Issue & Horrible Mileage

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I have a 2006 Honda Ridgeline RTS with 176,XXX miles on it. I bought the truck in May and noticed it took just a touch longer to start than most vehicles I had driven but didn't think anything of it. Recently I have noticed not only a dramatic decrease in mileage (used to get 15-17 around town...

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    Hi all, I've read through most of the threads here to try and figure out what's going on with my 2011 Ridgeline RT. I live in Boston and drive about 6 miles a day to my job through the city. Stop and go, all the way. I consistently get about 11 mpg, then on the highway (driving 60 MPH for...
  4. Towing Camper with v. without Cap - Gas Mileage?

    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...

    1G Mods, Installs and How-To's
    Just got my '06 RT a few weeks ago. The previous owner replaced the original muffler with Flowmaster, suggesting that it would help improve fuel efficiency for the truck. Has anyone done this and seen improvements in MPG? Are there potential problems with using the Flowmaster? Just curious how...

  14. What would you pay for a Ridgeline Diesel?

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    If Honda were to fulfill our wildest dreams (well, for at least some of us) and introduce a diesel model for, say, the 2011 model year, how much of a premium would you be willing to pay for this option?
  15. 09 RTL 15-16mpg around town

    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...
