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.
