Honda CVR mpg

I was hoping for better than the expected: 20 mpg / 27 mpg / 23 mpg on my FWD 2009 CRV LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A). 95% of the time, I am alone w/o cargo.

I don’t blame you for being disappointed…My V8 Crown Vic routinely produces those numbers…

If you drive mainly around town 20 MPG sounds about right, especially during the winter. 20 MPG is pretty reasonable. My SUV gets about 9 MPG.
