6MT Fuel economy Poll

So which car gets better fuel economy in the Real world?

Vote in this poll if you own a CRZ with a 6MT transmission and indicate your average fuel economy from at least 3 fill ups.

Note this poll has slightly different categories than the overall fuel economy poll for greater accuracy.

If you own a CRZ with a CVT transmission you should not vote in this poll. You can vote in this poll http://www.crzforum.com/forum/honda-...nomy-poll.html. You can view the results by clicking the "view poll results" button at the bottom right of the poll.

For those voting More than 42.0 MPG or Less than 34.0 MPG,
Please post your actual fuel economy in a post to this thread.

With the first 10 votes in on each poll the CVT is averaging 3 MPG better thanr the 6MT:
40 to 37 MPG
Both averages are exactly 3 MPG better than their EPA combined estimates.

After over 100 votes in the 6MT poll the median fuel economy is 38.4 mpg
After over 75 votes in the CVT poll the median is 39.5 mpg

So it looks like the real world difference between the 6MT and the CVT is 1.1 mpg not the 3 mpg difference measured by the EPA test results.

Makes sense to me.. I have never driven automatics as hard as I do manuals.

The winter has dropped my MPG a few places from 36ish to 33.2 for my latest tank

If your fuel economy is 43 highway and 35-37 city, how can your average be more than 42?

Wouldn't your 3 tank average be around 39-40?

With 40 votes in this poll, the average for 6MT equipped cars is 38.0 mpg(US)
And With 22 votes on the other poll, the average for CVT equipped cars is now 38.5 mpg (US).
So the difference between the transmission types has narrowed to 0.5 mpg.

Wow. That's certainly unexpected. Anecdotally I only hear of the CVT CR-Zs consistently breaking the 50mpg barrier.

Another thing is that as the engine is breaking in and we're learning how to drive it optimally, everyones mpgs will be increasing over time. But there will be a drop as mentioned for respondents during the winter months.

Traded: 2013 CR-Z EX, MT, no-navi, white
New: 2016 CR-Z EX, MT, no-navi, white
(you may sense a trend here)

I've not voted yet, my mpg is not very stable (more like increasing constantly by 1mpg per tank)

All this has been in winter weather so far, the last couple of tanks with snow on the roads.
