After a year of seeing a range of 350 miles or so in the summer dropping to 300 in the winter for some reason this summer I am seeing a range available of 400+. I thought maybe this was not accurate but I went on a long trip last week and decided to see if I could go the displayed distance, which was 435 miles. At 400 miles the low fuel light came on and I refueled at the next station. It took 6.2 gals. One of my complaints with my clarity is the small gas tank, so being able to go this far on a tank is great, at least in the summer. I drive 65 mph so that helps a lot.

Don't know why the picture isn't clear, the origional was fine . tried to remove it but doesn't seem to be any way.

From the factory all cars are preset with the EPA efficiency numbers. As you drive they learn and adapt. Each manufacturer uses a different rolling efficiency period to update the GOM range display (Guess-O-Meter). Chevy uses 50 miles or 100 KM (depending on the country). I don't know what Honda uses but I suspect it's similar - too long and it's useless to handle changing conditions and too short and it's all over the place.
