I had a 1998 Honda Civic LX sedan and averaged 25 MPG in the summer and 21-23 MPG in the winter. Never understood why that car got such bad gas mileage. Could have been the SI wheels, I suppose

Now with my '04 HCH, I'm averaging 48 MPG and I just started driving it...so I have a feeling this will go up with time.
