Gotta call BS on this.......I have a 2006 Pilot, 2wd and the best I ever got with it is 24mpg...going 65mph, flat ground and keeping the ECO kicked in at all times when possible.

Easy folks! Regarding the pervasive disbelief at my Pilot's MPG, I'll leave the math to you.
114 miles on 3.67 gallons double clicked on the fill and refill. The purpose in my comments was not to elicit belief in mileage figures, but rather to find out if anyone knew if Honda was considering putting the variable cylinder management system in the Honda Ridgeline. I'm guessing no one knows. Sorry to have ruffled feathers.
#84 of 90 12.1 MPG Re: Turbo-diesel please. [huff2]

12.1 MPG Pilot 2WD 2009
If only the reviewer's would have had huff2 to instruct them on proper driving technique they could have obtained 31 mpg instead of 12.1 mpg.

A member of the Honda Pilot forum stated -
Partial tank calculations are extremely inaccurate. you'll need at least 3 full tank calculations to get a ballpark average.
Members of the Honda Pilot forum are reporting between 13 mpg and 18 mpg city and between 17 mpg and 23 mpg highway for the 2009. 13 to 15 mpg city is common according to owners reports.

Such a small tank allows for large errors in calculations (not your fault, but rather that of the gas pump). I believe you report what you found truthfully, but it is important to note that the smaller thank, the larger the margin of error.
#88 of 90 Extended Cab Variant on the Way??

I wonder if Honda has an Extended Cab variant in the works for the 2011 redesign? I would think they could double the sales with a 6-6.5 truck bed for better "work ability and a lower price for the less content. What do you guys think?

I would be very interested in an extended truck bed, although I have successfully transported 20 sheets of 4x8 drywall in my '06 Ridge. A six and a half-foot bed would be ideal, and I think Honda would find many more buyers.
#90 of 90 2009 Ridgeline RT
Sep 13, 2009 (11:41 am)
Purchased:2009 Ridgeline RT. Tried the Cash-for Clunkers, missed the mpg by 1mpg. Old vehicle 1993 Ford Explorer XLT. Liked the truck, purchased anyway. Question: I would like to add the outside temp indicator to display. I assume the wiring is the same for all Ridgeline models! Any way of getting schematics for Free? Thanks.
