#1757 of 2554 My Honda Fit Mileage Numbers
Apr 09, 2008 (5:53 pm)
I've been keeping careful track of my Fit's mileage (actually, all expenses, but that's another topic) since I bought my Blaze Orange Metallic in July, 2007. I've been quite pleased with the numbers.
For 2007 (which recall was only 6 month for the Fit), it averaged 35.75 MPG.
For 2008 (to date), it has averaged 34.42 MPG.
Highway miles are definitely better; I haven't driven a full tank exclusively on the highway but those tanks are always better, around 38 MPG. That's with highway miles totaling about 1/4 of the tank in total. I suspect that a full "highway run" with the entire tank would hit anywhere from 40 - 45 MPG; I should be able to find out for sure later this summer.
In my experience the Fit does not perform as well in colder weather; I've seen a definite drop in the colder months. This doesn't surprise me at all.
I love my Fit!

hey folks, I have been driving my Sport Fit AT in Miami, FL (flat land, A/C all the time, stop and go as well as heavy expressway traffic). I have yet to see the glorious 37-40 MPG now for almost 1.5 years of driving long distances as well as commuting to my job 8 miles doorstep to doorstep R/T. I admit that I drive the speed limit-plus in local around town and maybe 80 MPH on the highway (when the law is not around) but usually the speed limit-plus (72-75mph). I get 26 mpg in city and 32 mpg in highway. Check out the fueleconomy.gov website and you will find that this is probably the average mpg for the Fit country wide. Here are the URLs
and the old and new MPG govt figures side by side for the FIT
So if you just got a Honda Fit , dont get all uptight with the MPG just be glad because at least you can park anywhere with ease and with space on all sides which can avoid the parking lot dings. I really like my Fit !!!

On the fueleconomy.gov site, when selecting a Fit, it lists three engine and transmission choices:
- 4 cylinder, 1.5 Liter, Automatic 5-spd, Regular Gasoline, CLKUP
- 4 cylinder, 1.5 Liter, Manual 5-spd, Regular Gasoline
- 4 cylinder, 1.5 Liter, Automatic (S5), Regular Gasoline, 2MODE CLKUP
Is the latter one the AT Sport, and what is 2MODE CLKUP vs. CLKUP ?

I believe you are correct the last one is the AT sport. Here is the key below. There is a link on the bottom of the page that explains the abbreviations.
CLKUP Computer-Controlled Continuously Variable Lockup
nLKUP User-Selectable Lockup with n (2 Through 9) Lockup Ranges
nMODE Multimode, User-Selectable Transmission. n = Number of Gear Range (2 Through 9)

I've put 14,000 miles on my 2007 Fit Sport MT since August and am averaging over 36 mpg communting to work (50/50 split between country and city roads). The worst I've ever done is about 32 and the best is 39. No special gas either...usually Wawa, but sometimes Shell if it's 5-Cent-Off Tuesday.
Got no good answer for the mpg problem you guys are having. Maybe the AT just sucks. Part of why I swore off ever buying another automatic.

I have about 42000 miles on my '07 AT Sport. I must say, this is one of the most sensitive cars (gas mileage-wise) I've ever owned. It's awfully easy for me to get 26 - 28 mpg in local town driving, if I drive as I prefer, with hurried stops and starts, etc. If I really nurse the car and drive carefully and mindfully, I can get 32 - 34 mpg in town. Never better than 34 mpg, though. Highway performance is more forgiving - I typically average 39 - 40 mpg, whether I'm driving 65 or 75 mph. Since most of my driving is at freeway speeds, my overall average mpg is 35.3.

I have been looking for a gas sipper, even though I have owned Toyota pickups for the past thirty years with incredible positive results, I have decided on the Fit because I like the look verses the yaris, but looking at this post has got me questioning my decision regarding gas mileage!

If you want better mileage stick to the stick.
