Honda Accord 2014

Consumption

How good is the fuel consumption of a Honda Accord / Acura TSX 2.0 from 2014? The official numbers aren't exactly high. On the other hand - what can you expect of a car with a weight of 1500 Kg having only 1 BHP more than the previous model which only had a weight of 1300 Kg. You do not have to drive many Km before you realize that Honda / Acura has manipulated dramatically with the car. Especially the gearbox has been modified. The car takes slightly more RPM - but now has 6 shifts in stead of 5. But is that enough for a better fuel economy. Lets have a look at some facts.

Tolerences

At any time there will be fuel from various companies in the tank. Furthermore there can be fuel of various qualities in the tank at the very same time. At the end of the day this should all not have all that much to say. I can also not guarantee that the counter at the Tank is giving 100% correct values for how much fuel I've put in the tank - I simply have to trust the counters. I can also not guarantee that I've filled the tank exactly to the same lavel every time - but I've tried! This should give a max tolerance of 1/40, which I consider acceptable. Having said this, I should mean that the values I show here are fair and can be accepted as good and solid.

Way of driving

We all know that the way we drive has a lot to say about the consumption of a car. I do not see myself as an economy driver, on the other hand I'm also not the first at the next cross. I never try to set records. I consider my way of driving being fairly normal. I live in Nord Rhein Westfalen in Germany. People here do not know how to drive which results in an extremely low average speed - often the traffic doesn't move at all. In other words this is not the way to drive if you want a good fuel economy. I drive about 30% in cities, 10% on country roads and the last 60% are highway. I normally start the car twice a day - selten more than that. This way of driving is for sure not the way that is used for the values shown in the papers following the car. But it has to do it.

Lets have a look at it.

For your information: Litre fueled is the amount of gas fueled at the day. Litre consumed is what I've used till the next time I had to fuel. The last figure is the one used to calculate the fuel economy/consumption. I'm fully aware that this can be a little confusing, but I do hope this gives an understading for how I got the figures you see here.

A little statistik

The car has until now driven (Km): 112947

Total amount of Fuel used during my ownership: 7268.17
Total amount of Euro used on fuel during the time I've been the owner of the car: 9474.86
Average fuel price per Litre (Euro) during the time I've owned the car: 1.30
Average consumption during the time I've been the owner of the car (Km/liter): 15.66
