Your comparing gas mileage on a 4 cyl civic against the element? the element has the aerodynamics of a brick and it weights around 3500 lbs. what's a civic around 2800lbs?
Another important point... The Element (and 4-cyl Accord and CR-V) uses the 2.4 L VTEC; the Civic (LX / EX) use a 1.7 L, less powerful engine.
The VTEC is a really great engine, but the mileage is significantly lower than the 1.7 that the Civic uses.
