Any Honda Civic 1.8 i-VTEC owners here? – mpg question?
Just wondering if there are any Honda owners on here who can give me an idea of what mpg they get?
The car I am looking at is a 06 5dr 1.8 i-tec Honda Civic EX.
The MPG on paper seems to vary enormously. from 33-54mpg 😯
Will mostly be doing short runs, B roads and town driving, no motorway, sensible driving.Posted 4 years ago
So someone with a 1.6 and someone else with a 2.0…? 🙂
1.8 ivtec here (well wife has, not for me <shudder> 🙂 ). We get low 40’s mixed driving which can rise to mid 40’s on a run.
Apparently the vtec in this instance is for economy as, despite claiming 140bhp, it feels gutless.Posted 4 years agoRichPennyMember
I’ve got one, an 07 1.8 ES. Exclusively on the work run, which is about 3 miles of b road, and a mixed 1.5 miles of 30/40 and traffic, I get 35 without being careful. Mix in longer A-road runs and I got low 40s, a big motorway run mixed in would maybe see 45. That’s all on the onboard computer though, so probably as accurate as DRS 😉
Nice car though, in my experience.Posted 4 years agopeterichMember
06 1.8 here – on board says around 35 but that’s nearly all round town always with roof rack on I remember getting it and getting a claimed 56 on the screen for a 70mile a road and dual carrage way journey but I was really trying to eek it outPosted 4 years ago
great car though I love it
read the civic forums for common faults to look for
I had a temp sensor on the rad corrode and was told it needed a new wiring loom at around £3500 after hours of research I found they have produced a fix for it and it cost £100 thank godDangerboyMember
I’ve got a 56 plate 1.8 sport. Was reading an indicated 43 mpg over 8000 miles, mainly a road commuting.Posted 4 years ago
Mpg seems noticeably lower in the winter, higher in the summer for me, possibly down to types though?
Averaged 49 mpg over 1000 miles on holiday last week (sensible motorway/A road driving mostly).
As others have said, much thirstier above about 4000 rpm but that is where the most fun is.
Awesome car for lugging stuff about, the magic rear seats are fantastic.
Civinfo forum is quite a helpful place if you need more information!nigelb001Member
I find rear view OK but not brilliant. 3/4 view is not so good but its liveable with, I’ve driven worse, I’ve driven better. Bonus is that when driving at night the headlights of a car following at a reasonable distance behind is mostly blocked by the spoiler bar so no dazzle even though you know its there.Posted 4 years ago
