It may have taken me a year to find my Civic in the Phoenix area. I live a town of about 10,000 truck enthusiasts, next to a smaller town of truck enthusiasts, and with a few other small towns where trucks are also popular. Here is a 2002 Civic in-town with 389,000 km (far too many freedom units) for $1,000 miles:

They claim 40 MPG, but the butt says EX, and the EPA says 27/33, so I say "Shenanigans."

Fourteen people reported fuel economy between 2005 and 2015, with an average of 33.8 MPG. So, if I drive like the average owner, I would beat EPA (by 12.7%), and be in the neighborhood of my Accord--in a smaller car.

Where is the fun in that?

Edit: Where is MPG_Number_Guy's thread? I just read through this one:

However, I do not see anything of the sort here:
