I'm assuming the 384 miles you are referring to is the range, or estimated miles to empty. That range is calculated using the average mpg. Since your car is new, it doesn't have your personal mpg to use for calculation so Honda probably programmed it so it uses the combined mpg rating for our Pilot. I have 5,000 miles and my last tank showed 340 miles range since my commute is all local and I average around 17 mpg.hey guys,
my car is at 816 miles, when i bought the car, it has full tank with 384x gas mile on it. i pumped 2x times and each time it said 384x gas miles..that being said..384 x 3 = 1152 miles total.. but how come my car milage is at 816?
the general consensus is that the mileage computer in the car is generous. and usually 2-3 mpg less than actual. and people have proven this by doing their own calculationI'm just two months or so into my "new" 2018 Touring Pilot and am amazed at (1) how the car's own mileage computer differs with my own (very basic) math to calculate my mileage -- and of course the car tells me I'm getting about 3 more MPGs than my own math is telling me. And. (2), how the reports on this forum from many users are also all over the board with their mileage reports -- as well as how the Econ mode seems to work for some and not at all for others. How can all this data be so inconsistent and all over the place????
Aside from this, and thinking I'd be getting at least 2-3 actual MPGs better than I do, I'm loving this car....
is this with 2wd or awd?In my case, I drive 650 miles per week, 80% of which is at 72-73 mph on an interstate, 17% at roughly 60 mph on a state highway, and about 3% locally. I check my mpg at every fill which is every three round trips of 130 miles each. Here in NJ, they switch over to an oxygenated fuel from November to April, at which point I only get about 22 mpg. When they switch over to the"summer formula" in April, it goes up to about 23.5-24.5 mpg.
The car's mpg calculator is very generous, as it will show that I am getting about 26.5 - 27.5 mpg. I wish.
