Many people are drawn to SUVs like the Honda CR-V because they want to make their journeys more comfortable by giving their families more space while on the road – but with that extra room, you may worry about Honda CR-V gas mileage. As a general rule, large vehicles’ weight tends to make them less fuel-efficient. However, Honda automakers strive to upend that stereotype.

What to Know About Honda CR-V Gas Mileage

Late-model Honda CR-V SUVs have featured a 190-horsepower turbocharged engine that makes 179 pound-feet of torque with a continuously variable transmission. Several FWD variants get an EPA-estimated 28/34/30 (City/Highway/Combined),1 while AWD versions can achieve up to 27/32/29 (City/Highway/Combined).1

In 2020, Honda automakers introduced the Honda CR-V Hybrid option, which gets even better Honda CR-V gas mileage. Back then, this vehicle was equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric drive motor, and a lithium-ion battery. Regenerative braking helped recapture energy that would otherwise be lost to supplement the SUV’s fuel economy. With standard AWD, this electrified vehicle can achieve up to an EPA-estimated 40/35/38 MPG (City/Highway/Combined).1

Older Honda CR-V Gas Mileage

That being said, while late-model SUVs often show up on our lot, many of the trade-ins we receive are for vehicles that are a bit older. Luckily, a lot of the qualities that our customers love about a Honda CR-V, such as its flexible cargo space and comfortable ride, have been part of its design from the beginning. For example, your 2005 Honda CR-V MPG rating will be a bit less impressive – 20/26/23 (City/Highway/Combined)3 with 2WD – but these vehicles tend to be very competitively priced.

A Look at the Honda CR-V Gas Tank Size

As much as we like to save money at the pump, we like saving time too. Not only can topping up add significant time to our morning or evening commutes, but it can be frustrating to be dependent upon gasoline right when prices have spiked. While this SUV still requires gas to run, its Honda CR-V gas tank size can hopefully help you push off this errand until it’s more convenient for you.

Measuring 14 gallons, you can go over 400 miles in a 2020 FWD or AWD non-hybrid version of this SUV.1 If you find a hybrid one, you can keep going 100 miles or more after that.1

How to Get the Most Out of Your Honda CR-V MPG

To get the best Honda CR-V gas mileage, you should take your SUV to a service department for maintenance at least every six months. Oil changes and tire rotations may seem like hassles, but they help your vehicle run better on less gas and extend the life span of essential components, which saves you money in multiple ways.
