I got an average of 12.5L/100km on my last tank.
Well, if my conversions are correct, 12.5 litres/100km equates to ~18.8 mpg. You didn't say whether your TSX is 4 or 6 cyliner. Mine's a 4 and I am lucky enough to be able to drive to work about 75% on freeways running at 50-70 mph, with the balance on arterial city streets with lights about every mile, at 45 mph. I average ~27.5 mpg in the winter & ~26.5 in the summer. I live in Phoenix where the summer high temps are between 105 & 115 deg F (40 - 46 deg C). Those numbers are real mpg calculated at each fill. The computer always reads high, between 5 & 8%, something I've complained about earlier on this board.
You're definitely low, but perhaps not so bad if you mostly drive in stop-and-go city traffic with lights every few blocks, and you're driving the 6. On the highway you should do much better, and you'll also do significantly better once the engine is completely broken in.
Hope you enjoy your car as much as I do mine.

I just bought a 2009 Acura tsx 6 speed. I reset the computer and drove about 25 miles (mostly highway). I realize the number is a little bloated but I averaged about 37 mpg on the highway. After a few days my mixed city/hwy is about 32mpg. That number includes a few times of really punching it.
Those of you getting lower numbers... 1. you probably have an automatic (manuals typically put up much better numbers)
2. you need to learn to do some mild hyper milling. google it.

Well, I've given up on hypermilling... it was easier to drive slow when the car was new. Every stoplight I had someone in a huge suv tailgating me to the next red light.
Now my avg. is about 31 mpg (on the display). My guess is the actual mileage measured at the pump would be closer to 30mpg.
