Can you post your fuel mileage? I just want to
know actual mileage from real owners and not test
My '99 Honda Passport averages 14 MPG. I do short
distance city driving and I find this low for my
I usually fill 10 gallons at a time and reach
about 140 miles before the gas gauge lights up.

In the office we have 98 Jimmy 4x4 and 98 Exploder 4x4. Jimmy gets about 17-18 mpg all highway (about 16 mixed), Exploder gets about 19-20 all highway (about 18 mixed). On the short city trips you will not get good milage. I drive Dodge Dakota daily commuter 6 miles to work and 6 miles back. In the summer time I average 14-15 mpg, in the winter time (especially if I have weight on the back for better traction) I average 10-12 mpg. On the highway I average about 18-20 mpg.

You must have a heavy foot or lots of city driving, my '98 Honda Passport averages 17 MPG in SOBE and 20-22 mpg in highway driving depending if I fly all out or just set it on cruise. Also I usually dont carry or drag anything and keep the back clear of any unnecersary weight. Maybe you have a few things back there adding some weight that is affecting your mpg.

I have only filled up twice...bought it new 6/24/00. 1st tank roughly 16.7 to 17.0. (not sure how full the dealership filled it up.) Second tank I got about 17.4. I drive 19.5 miles to work...half Interstate...half city streets...but not that much traffic or stop and go. Also, about 1/3 more city street other than to and from work..so 2/3 easy city street & 1/3 Interstate. Not too bad so far. (BTW, 2 wheel drive)
1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4.0, 2 wheel drive. Several thousand miles..combination city street and Interstate...computer show 18.1 MPG. Wife's vehicle.
Both include running aircon...darn hot is Memphis these days

I rented a Chevy Metro for my cousin to take his kids to Disney World and I told him to check his gas mileage to see how much better he got than the Passport. Well to my surprise, whenever we kicked up the speeds he got almost the same as the Passport, 22 mpg for the Metro vs 24 mpg for the Passport, and to add insult to injury the Metro rode like h#ll. It sounded and felt like it was stuck in 2nd gear and had no power whatsoever, and it drove like it was dragging an anchor around. When I returned it, I asked them to check it to see if it was working correctly and they said they could find nothing wrong, it was working fine...... makes you want to go hmmm...:0)

I guess I have a lead foot but it felt so inviting to drive fast. My '99 Passport has very good pick-up and I always keep up even with sports cars. I'd better calm down next time and be mindful of my fuel mileage.

I get 20 on steady freeway driving but only
15 mpg in mixed sububan use.I thought driving
more conservatively would improve it, but did not.
I like the power and and I use the A/C all the time so I'll live with it another year.Maybe the
Escape will be a tradeoff off power vs economy.

I get 19-20 mpg in the city and about 23-24 pure highway driving.

I drive two round trips (2.5-mile each trip) totalling 10 miles in a day. This is an inner city trip with 12 traffic lights each way. I average about 13-14 miles per gallon which I am disappointed. I hate those long waits at the traffic lights that badly cuts my mileage.
