PLEASE RECORD YOUR AVERAGE FUEL ECONOMY IN THE ABOVE POLL.

USE THE AVERAGE OF AT LEAST 3 FILL UPS

NOT YOUR BEST EVER, NOT YOUR WORST, BUT YOUR OVERALL AVERAGE

(FOR THOSE WHO VOTED BEFORE, PLEASE NOTE THE POLL HAS BEEEN REVISED AND RESTARTED, SO PLEASE VOTE AGAIN)


Fuel economy is a big part of the CRZs feature set. The US EPA estimates of 31/37 MPG for the 6 speed are a bit disappointing for a hybrid and the fuel economy achieved by media testing so far has been even a bit worse.

But the question yet to be answered is what is the real world fuel economy from actual owners?

Please post your results here. Whether it is MPG or in kilometers per liter or mile per imperial gallon, please post what you find your results are and we will do the conversions so we can compare results from around the world.

Tell us how you drive your CRZ. Do you spend time in city traffic, highway cruising, are you a lead foot or a hypermiler? Tell us if you have a manual or a CVT.

It is clear that the CRZ isn't going to challenge the Prius as a fuel mileage champ, but I really would like to see if anyone can consistently achieve 40 MPG or more and are there others who will struggle to get 30 MPG?

Thanks for the link to the fuel economy site.

I see that there are already 3 CRZ owners who have posted their actual fuel economy there.

The first has driven 1471 km on 93 liters of fuel. This calculates to 6.32L/100km or 37.2 MPG (US)

The second has driven 3203 km on 203 liters of fuel. This also calculates to 6.32L/100 km or 37.2 MPG (US)
The third has driven 1848 kilometers on 131 liters of fuel. This calculates to 7.09L/100km or 33.2 MPG (US)

In my own CR-Z, all the information is right there.

The average fuel consumption is 16.1 km/l for the 2800 km the car has been driven so far. Each day I am told the average fuel consumption for the previous day when I drove the car. Yesterday, it was 19.8 km/l. I drove from home to the expressway and then a few km on narrow urban roads with relatively few traffic lights. I used Sports Mode because I was in a hurry. I used Econ Mode for the drive home, which followed precisely the same route. So, there was some lead-footing on the way there, but much hyper-miling on the way home, and the 19.8 was not much less than the 20.5 stated in the catalogue for the car.

Thank you for posting your results

For conversion of km/l to MPG (US) multiply by 2.35
For conversion of km/l to MPG (UK) multiply by 2.82
For conversion of km/l to l/100 km divide 100 by km/l result

So Hirotaro's overall average is 37.9 MPG (US) or 45.5 MPG (UK) or 6.21 l/100 km
His hyper-miling run delivered 46.5 MPG (US) or 55.9 MPG (UK) or 5.05 l/100km

Good information for real world expectations.

In case you don't know...

if you have an account on spritmonitor.de you may view all results in MPG (US or UK) or l/100 km or km/l, no matter what units they have been posted. You may also change the currency. Unit settings can be altered at any time.
