I drive a Civic Hybrid so I get pretty good gas migleae (40+ MPG). I do speed though, about 9 miles over on average.My car has a readout of my MPG at all times, and I montior my MPG for each trip. Here are the main things that cause my MPG to drop:1. Heating and air conditioning. Air conditioning is obvious, but I actually get worse gas migleae in the winter than any other time. If I turn on my front windshield vents and my rear defroster, I get an automatic 10 MPG drop.2. Stop and go driving. My engine shuts off at red lights, but if I’m averaging 2 MPH in traffic my MPG goes down to around 5-10. This can kill my overall MPG if half of my 40 minute drive to work is spend going nowhere with the engine running.3. Driving over 60 MPH. Wind resistence at anything over this really hurts the car’s ability to maintain speed. Anything slower than this is fine though, I get much better gas migleae going a contant 55 MPH than if I’m driving 40 MPH on a road that has a lot of stop lights.So in general, the best way to get good gas migleae for me is to pick the route that has the least stops and to try not to use too much AC/heat. Staying under 60 MPH helps, but it is much less of a factor than the others.
