I have a 08 honda fit sport. tracked mpg religiously my first year.
I am replacing my tires presently and read reviews on tire rack about oem tires dunlop sp37 i believe. it said they excel in gas economy. so I am expecting lower economy on my new tires which are not on yet.
That said, I found about 4 mpg decrease over the winter with the same tires. Approximately 35 mpg down to 31 mpg.

One word to explain unexpected high mpg on the highway. Tailwind. It makes a huge difference. I can get 33 mpg in my minivan with a nice tailwind, and close to 50 mpg in my Accord (this is at about 62-3 mph). Of course with a a headwind the reverse is true.

Apr 03, 2010 (10:14 am)
I've had my new 2010 fit sport auto for less than a month and a couple tanks of gas, but I'm pleased so far with the mileage. I'm averaging 32-33mpg with 40%city/60%highway mix and 33 is the EPA rated highway mileage. On congestion free highways I notice 37~39mpg is easily achievable... that's awesome in my book. The mileage computer in the 2010 is pretty accurate too.. it said 32.7mpg and when I refueled and did the math I computed 32.9.. AWESOME!
I am driving it mellow but would guess aggressive mixed driving would put you in the 29mpg area. Not bad.

I have a 2008 Sport fit. When I bought the car I was getting 34 road 30 city. I am now getting 25MPG city. Have 36000 miles on it What could have happened to drop 5MPG. Bill

Air in the tires,Dirty Air Filter,bad gas,could be lots of things

Did you install new tires? That can drastically drop mpg if the new tires are not as efficient. Especially since a tire is most efficient when it is about worn out.

Installed 195 60 15 and thought that was the problem. Took them off and installed 195 55 15 General Tires (original size) back on the car. Using my trip odometer to calculate miles traveled.
#2451 of 2554 New 2010 Fit, first tank
May 08, 2010 (5:47 am)
I recently traded my 2008 Yaris for a 2010 Fit Base with manual transmission. First tank completed. Brand new engine, 11 miles on it at delivery. Same driving conditions as the Yaris for my commute -- New England "mixed" driving, little stop and go to be considered city driving -- I live in No. Central Massachusetts and my 30 mile commute is into So. NH , averaging about 50 MPH.
Normal driving, plus some "spirited" excursions down some twisty roads to check the handling. Pretty much normal driving. Results: 377.7 miles on the first tank, 9.3336 gallons to fill it. 40.46 MPG on paper, 40.7 average reported by the car's average MPG gauge.

This is consistent with my results, on Fit now approaching 26,000 miles. Mileage got better for me after the first thousand miles.
My measured mileage at 50 with cruise control is 40-43 mpg. At 70, the best I can get is 34-37. The dash indicator is consistently above that, I mentally slice off 10-15% any time I look at it.
