I just wanted to brag just a little bit about my Honda CRV and the incredible gas mileage I am getting with it.
The Honda CRV is a "crossover" SUV that is built on the same chassis (they call it a 'platform') as the Honda Civic is. So... that gives you a bit of an idea about how nice and roomy it is inside. Enough headroom for my poofy Texas hair :)
Gas prices are coming down. I passed several gas stations today and noticed that regular is selling for $3.34 a gallon. That is like seventy cents lower than it was about a month ago. Cool !
Anyhow... on with my brag. I drive quite a bit... specializing in New Home Sales as I do. So... I can easily drive between 125 and 175 miles a day... and really not go anywhere... LOL. Just all around Tarrant County... which is the county that Fort Worth, Texas is in.
Above you will see a picture I took of my dashboard odometer today that shows my gas mileage. Notice right in the middle... towards the top. There it is... 30.0 miles per gallon. Incredible. By the way... my CRV is a 2007... and I took delivery of it on July 14, 2007. Right now I have about 27,000 miles on it. All that... and I never go anywhere... LOL.
Just for fun, I looked up on the Honda website to see what kind of mileage is being quoted on the current CRV's. It quotes 22 in the city and 27 on the open road. Somehow... with my own personal brand of non-aggressive driving... I have ended up getting 30.0 MPG. I just felt so good about it, I wanted to share it... just in case anyone on Active Rain is looking for a crossover SUV with decent gas mileage.
Happy Car Shopping !
