Default MPG Honha Accord Hybrid

I have a 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring with about 2500 miles on it. I am consistently getting about 33-35mpg. I calculate it when I fill up the tank. These numbers are similar to what the display sates. Is anyone else getting lower than the advertised 47mpg? I drive in econ mode and am a very casual driver to obtain the best mileage possible. I drive equal city and hwy which should not be different from what Honda advertises.

There are many scenarios where getting anywhere near the EPA rated mileage is impossible.

1) lots of very short trips like a soccer mom running errands.
2) extreme cold and/or climate control use (gas engine is only source of heat, if running to keep the cabin warm, it burns more fuel)
3) remote start and warm-up at idle - essentially, neither of these things should be done.
4) terrain - hills kill mileage. Period.
5) Cold battery - cold hybrid batteries can't be utilized fully, so the hybrid system is less effective overall.

Check out the individual estimates:


Average is 39.1mpg for users reporting mileage. The bottom 2 at 35mpg are in relatively cold areas.

Test as follows:
Warm up car
Set cruise for 60mph on a 5 mile stretch of flat road.
Reset your mpg meter.
At end of 5 miles, record mpg reading.
Do a U-turn
Set cruise for 60mph on a 5 mile stretch of flat road.
Reset your mpg meter.
At end of 5 miles, record mpg reading.

Average the two mpg readings, and you'll have a good idea what your car is capable of.
