Honda Civic Hybrid Has Best Gas-Mileage

This article was written by in Consumer. 4 comments.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the Honda Civic Hybrid beats out the Toyota Prius for best gas-mileage (61 mpg city/66 mpg highway versus 60/51). The non-hybrid Civic is the best gasonline-only vehicle with 36/44.

In my driving experience with my manual-transmission 2004 Honda Civic LX, I usually get between 32 and 37 mpg, and that’s mostly highway miles. Honda has information about their 2005 Civic Hybrid.

That’s excellent mileage. I’ve been counting my gas-mileage using a Palm application on my Handpsring Visor, but I’m not sure how accurate it is.

I have a 2001 Civic EX that’s a manual and I get 40 MPG (combination highway/city) on a fairly regular basis. It’s amazing because I am not in any way a conservative driver!

I get about 12 mpg on my van. :(

My 91 Honda Civic (167 000 miles) gets between 32 and 36 mpg, real drive time, not the EPA “flawed” version.
