Honda Odyssey Fuel Consumption

2006 Honda Odyssey Touring Fuel Consumption Data

Summary of data from purchase in September '06 to June '07:

Total distance driven: 8535 km
Total fuel consumed: 1436.9 L
Average price per liter: $1.011
Total cost of fuel: $1454.53
Average consumption: 16.6 L/100km (14.4 mpg)

I've always tried to track the fuel consumption of all my vehicles for at least the first year of ownership. Our 2006 Honda Odyssey is no different. However, I have been lax in entering data and tonight I finally decided to catch up. I thought this information would be especially useful to compare with the fuel consumption we get on our road trip this summer....

My driving habits don't really change from vehicle to vehicle. Around town, I drive with a lead foot and enjoy making the tires chirp off-the-line--yeah, I know: tsk, tsk! That doesn't lead to very good fuel economy, that's for sure. It will be interesting so see what numbers I get when I'm cruising on the highway. I'm hoping that Honda's Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) will help things.

    Comment from seo link master:

    "Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel Saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. Search engine optimization, Try to Be happy."

    My reply:

    Thanks for your comment, but the general consensus in the automotive community is that the Tornado Fuel Saver is a waste of money.
