    ""about 27 at 80" can't quit chuckling "

    Glad I could be of service. That was August of 2011 during a trip to New Mexico. Obviously, the 80 was only on the Interstate portions... sure is nice to have those higher speeds in NM and AZ.

    I rarely get it that fast here on the LA freeways.

    Actually, that is about what I've gotten on my last three cars. My 2003 CR-V had a similar engine, so that isn't surprising. But my 2006 Freestyle had a 3.0 V6, and it returned about the same (maybe a half MPG less).

    The '04 V6 4WD averages a little over 19 mpg, the '09 V6 AWD averages about 22, and the '13 2.0 I4 AWD my wife just brought home, not sure yet. :)
  • AWD is where you can lose mileage. Depends on how you drive. The computer runs the car/truck. Any vehicle in the city, mileage stinks. Real world? lower than advertised, always will.

    Houston, we have a problem. There is no such thing as a 2012 with Ecoboost.
