We pushed the Honda Accord Hybrid to its limit during our week long test. Each day friends and I took the Accord on treks around Charlotte. These treks stressed the Accords hybrid system and pushed it to its efficiency limits. We attended the live Breathe Inked Uprising, spoken-word poetry performance in the Knight Gallery in Spirit Square and enjoyed some tasty food at Brixx Pizza, Maverick Rock Taco, Azteca Mexican Restaurant and Buffalo Wild Wings. The Honda Accord hybrid achieved a world record on its way to 800 miles driven on one tank of fuel.

      I'm not sure how you guys are getting these numbers, I purchased one 3 months ago and I'm getting ~ 450 miles per tank, the max average MPG I've gotten so far was 39 MPG, I'l have to see how results look like in the summer

      Ammar Khawam same I live in the mountains and this winter the best I’ve gotten over a whole tank average was 38 mpg. Or getting around 520 miles per tanks. Hopefully this summer it’s even better or else maybe my battery may need work

      PLEASE DONT BUY THIS TRASH*****
      my accord almost killed me, braking system failed multiple times. Honda couldn't fix the problem. It has been 2 months and they are on their 4th part replacement. In my opinion dont buy honda and especially their HYBRIDS. I'm WARNING you. costumer serives is terrible, no one gets back to you, I have went back and forth with the head office and dealer ship. This is not how I imagined my new car Experience. I wish I went with the Toyota my second option at the time. Honda has no reliability***
      I want to help as many people now.

      Sorry to read this Bro. I can't say for certain that your experience is common or uncommon. All I know, is practically everyone else I know, seen, heard of or read about love their Hondas. I'm not saying there are not others with similar experiences to yours, but I can only imagine that they are fewer than you think. Toyotas are good cars as well...

      The trick is when you are on the engine mode. You have to control your pedal on one or two strips on power gauge and when the battery get enough charge. You have to use only one strip of power gauge on EV mode, but the speed will reduce as the power is limited. The battery can be charged more efficiently on cruise mode on level ground. You can have up to 6 strips of battery gauge. I am still wonder how much the fuel efficiency it can extend.

      I hate to say this but a lot has changed since my last post.  I purchased my Accord from Crown Honda in Greensboro NC.  2 Months ago I took my Accord Hybrid Touring in for its first oil change and tire rotation..  As soon as I left the dealership I noticed a definite difference in the way the car was driving.  I quickly saw my MPG go from 55 to 65 in local driving to 35 to 45.  Highway driving went from 60+ to 35 to 40 MPG.  I repeatedly took the car back to the dealership but they keep saying that it is working as it should.  I contacted HONDA and they will not respond.  I again went to the dealership to try to get some satisfaction but I was told just to take the car on a endless tour of other Honda dealerships.  So very disappointed.

      Michael Phillips you are correct. I have the 2018 Accord hybrid. At constant cruise controlled highway speeds 65 or 70mph or above you would be lucky to get 39-40mpg. It appears to me that Honda took a play from the VW playbook and figured out how to deceive the EPA. However, in town one can easily get over the EPA ratings.

      Problem is that expensive battery keeps failing too soon and notorious in all their ev/hybrids. Just look at the reviews and ads for sale for their hybrids.

      I would love it if people would get their facts straight with this car.... I don't know how many times I've seen the whole "this is how the 'motors' work" and almost every review says something different about it... ranging from what you've said, to both the electric and gas engines working together to combine their power... sure would be nice if someone could actually say EXACTLY how the car works lol.

      Also, should change your title.... ~740ish miles on a tank, is NOT 800... clickbait for the win.

      The point of the comment wasn't that "I" didn't know how it worked. But rather that it would be nice if the people taking the time to put out 'information' about a particular topic, actually KNEW about the topic they are trying to talk about, instead of bullshitting their way through things or purposely dumbing things down to the point where it becomes completely false information.

      If you watch all the reviews on this car, each one that talks about 'how the engine works' will tell you something completely different from eachother. One will say its just a gas engine with an electric motor. One will say its two electric motors delivering power to the wheels, then switches to a gas engine. One will say it has a CVT transmission and its perfectly timed so you can't even tell when its 'shifting' 'gears'. You may only find 2-3 videos out of the 20+ that ACTUALLY say the REAL thing that is going on with the engine in this vehicle....

      Hikari, I you haven't found out exactly how the car works than I would recommend you try Engineering Explained. He is a mechanical engineer that does phenomenal white board explanations. He explains this topic really well and compares it to the final drive ration on the Koenigsegg Agera. He is basically saying that its the same tech that's in a 2 million dollar car. I hope this helps.

      I just finished a trip from Greensboro to Brooklyn and back. I filled up just south of Roanoke VA. I drove with the Adaptive Cruise control on almost 100% of the way. I kept the speed under 60MPH but I was rewarded with 60+MPG. I completely filled the gas tank so that gas was standing at the opening under the gas cap. The extra few gallons of gasoline in addition to the high MPG gave me a range of over 950 miles. I made it to Brooklyn and back to the same gas station on that one fill up. Clearly you gan get lower MPG but I believe it will be hard for anyone to get higher MPG than I achieved.

      I have one. Around town I have seen over 50MPG but at speeds above 70MPH I have received 35MPG. At those high speeds the gas engine is on continuously greatly affecting MPG and range.

      I have a 2017 accord hybrid and have not come any were near this milage. I drive just under 100 miles a day to work almost entirely highway in michigan. I'm averaging about 34mpg. I traded in a Civic Hybrid that averaged 39mpg for this one that was supposed to get better milage. It has not proven to be so. The dealer is saying because of the cold, but it has not been that cold this winter and the civic went through colder winters and got better mpg. I keep the car in echo mod which is supposed to give the best milage. Any tips for better mpg?

      rtheck In reply to jmahaney3

      The system will use more gas when you are on the highway bc it will be in engine mode most of the time. It will switch to EV mode every once in a while after the engine powers the vehicle as well as charging the battery. When the battery is full it will go to EV (electric only). So you won't see the advertised numbers if you don't primarily do mostly city and little highway

      How do you accelerate, and brake? Do you keep your eyes up at all times so that you can coast? Are you accelerating down hills or are you coasting? You can gain a lot more mileage with how you apply the throttle, coast and brake. I will give you a perfect example; I watched a car accelerating as it approached an intersection. The light was red and there was traffic blocking the intersection in the opposing lanes. In other words, even if the light was green, they could not go any further. So there was no reason for them to be on the throttle. They could have simply coasted to a stop. If they approach every intersection like this, they are wasting fuel every time, and all of these steps add up.

      I recently bought a 2017 Civic sedan EX-Turbo for my son. I was going to buy the 2017 Accord Hybrid. But, he either felt the Accord was too serious for him, or, he wanted to save some money for me, as such, he wanted a Civic. For our first road trip, I drove the Civic for about 100 miles from my town to Houston, mostly highway (35 minutes at the speed limit of 75 mph on one highway and 60 minutes at the speed limit of 65 mph on another highway) and some local driving. I averaged exactly 45 mpg.

      How does he like the sedan? I have not driven it, but it looks like it has lost some of its small, nimble nature because of how much larger it is over the out going generation.

      I have gotten 720 miles on mine with one tank. By one tank, meaning before the reserve kicks in. I filled up 14.1 gallons (tank size is 15.8) to be exact. Pretty sure if I had gone further would have been able to go 800 miles. The range number said I had 45 miles to go but the bars on the fuel gauge were all gone.

      Not sure though, does that range number calculate with reserve in mind? Anyone every seen it go negative?

      BryantCivica In reply to Nigel Yu

      +Nigel Yu yup its possible the range cant lie so if it says 45 miles to empty you have 45 mi left, i run my 2013 Honda CiVic to one bar with the gas light on for an additional 1 day or so till it hits 10 miles on the range then go to the station to fill up, my civic goes to 405-410 miles on one tank of gas, every time i fill it up i top off so my civic has 12.5 tank so i put 13 gal max, I have it set to automatically reset trip A upon gas door opens!!! My objective is to have the car sputter and roll into the gas station with the engine off!!! : )

    • The Nemo Productions Network
      The Nemo Productions Network In reply to Nigel Yu

      +Nigel Yu Yes. During these type of tests, I typically carry a 2 gallon "gas-can" with me so that I can run the tank completely empty. Most cars will drive 20 to 50 miles beyond the zero mileage indicator, be it analog or digital. I had to end my test with the Accord Hybrid before I got to this point because my time was up with the car. So I could have accumulated additional miles if I had the time..

I and many others have done over 1000 miles in Honda Insight and Civic hybrids. Based on my testdrive of an Accord Hybrid when I got over 70+ mpg, getting 800 miles is nothing. I or some other hypermiler could achieve 1000

      good to hear that you're achieving 800 miles a tank, can you post your driving techniques, I manage to get 40 mpg with conservative, I live in VA and had 2000 miles on the car, first tank was 720 miles, second tank 680, third tank 660. I use eco mode and seat heaters mostly, rarely use climate control.

      The key is smooth throttle application. Also come out of the throttle as early as possible and cost. Then apply brakes smooth and consistently so that they are applied over a longer stretch. Not using the climate control on high helps too. Thanks for the comment. If you have not already, please give my video a thumbs up, share it with your Peeps and subscribe to the channel.
