So far on my second tank which is half full at the moment and my trip A odometer shows 180 miles, mostly city driving.Wizard said:How are you doing with mileage? I was worried that I might hit the EPA low of 16 MPG. But, I've just finished my first tank -- 18 MPG -- half freeway miles. I wonder if it will get better as the engine gets broken in?

Sorry, shouldn't have posted that. I reset the trip meter at every fill up so it should be 180mile/11gallons=16.36mpg for city driving. Who knows how accurate the gauge is at half full. I'll post again when I refill the tank.delphi7x10 said:Vertrkr,
If the tank was filled to the top with 22 gallons both times , that means you have used about 30 gallons, which means you are only getting 6mpg Tell me this ain't true, that you made a typo, or that you have been pulling a boat the whole time, since you got it.
No, and that pisses me off, no trip computer at all. The only readings in that display are Trip A/B odometer, total odometer and oil life, nothing else. The QuickStart guide shows a small screen shot of the nav screen with a "Trip computer" button on the screen but I guess that's a misprint as mine doesn't have it and no other manuals mention a trip computer in text or picture. I called American Honda to inquire about that but I missed their call back and I'll be damned if they'll ever call me back after I left the rep 3 voice mails and called her extension multiple times only to get her voice mail over the past weekzero said:Vertrkr, does the driver info LCD at the bottom of the speedometer give you a readout of fuel economy like in the Ody?
Nope, no range, no nothing except the odometers and oil life. No idea about adding it in, I tend to shy away from working on electronic stuff so I wouldn't do it, if it was ever offered as an accessory dealer install later I'd buy it.zero said:That is too bad. Does it give you a 'range' figure as in the Ody? Or I guess a better way to say it, a 'distance until empty' mileage number?
I really like those features of the Ody. I bet Honda adds those in for the next revision (2007 model year) if enough people squawk about it.
Come to think about it, only us Ody owners know what we are missing! I wonder how difficult it would be to add that package in? Do you think you could get a replacement part (with sending units) from an '05 Ody and put it in the Ridgeline? I really don't see why not.
I was on a business trip and I've put 572 miles on it now, with the last 50 or so in town and I used 26.359 gallons which works out to be 21.7 average. I guess because of the delay in getting mine, I'm being rewarded with great mileage.GEEK1 said:Anyone else have any real data for MPG? I just got mine Tuesday (full tank provided by the dealer) and I'm at 176miles with the odometer JUST under 1/2 tank. Is it really 16city and 21hwy?
