I've been known to be aggressive at times and my worse with the car has been 27mpg......my wife generally pulls down 30mpg easily

Strange question, but is there anyone out there like myself who does 90%+ of their driving in stop and go traffic with speeds of only 35mph max? Curious to know what you are getting in the 2.4L. My 6MT K20 gets about 22mpg.

Thanks.

Does anyone else have the Hybrid model? I bought my ILX back in the beginning of September and was initially quite pleased with the gas mileage it was getting (+40MPG). The past few months have been a different story with each tank only averaging between 21-24 MPG. I've tried just about everything... modifying my driving, warming the car in the mornings and nothing has really influenced the efficiency. Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm curious what others have experienced with their Hybrid. The car has just under 2,500 miles on it, I only use Premium gasoline and I have not yet had the oil changed.

2 scenarios:
1) Cold weather playing a major factor
2) Your batteries are not working for some reason

Take the car in, even if #1 is having a factor that's way too low.

Yeah that is weird. I have almost 4 k and have been getting around 40 mpg. However my last fill up was only 36 mpg. I drove aggressively the last tank but I am suspicious of the gas I put in it. What brand of premium of gas do you put in it? I think the owners manual suggest only top tier gas. Has your battery been discharging quickly? I agree it would be good to take it into a dealer to check it out.

UPDATE... I got Shell has instead of Sunoco this time an I've been getting 40+ mpg's ever since. Perhaps gas from different companies make a difference?
