Sorry, not trying to be pedantic, but urban and city mpg will be exactly the same thing. :p

I get 42mpg on my daily commute which is through a city so I guess "urban"... and about 57mpg on longer journeys when cruising at 65 (on GPS)

MPG totally depends on your driving style, if you boot it you're not going to get anywhere near what Honda claim.

To get high MPG figures you need to drive economically - not accelerate fast, keep a steady speed, don't rev high and not to go fast!

Also remember the diesel is thirsty when cold so on short journeys before it's had time to warm up it likes to drink fuel.

My ES diesel would give 60-62 mpg on the motorway providing I kept at 70-75 mph.My Type S diesel gave approx. 8 mpg less, driven same.Both cars around town approx. 40 mpg summer, 30-33 mpg winter

38 urban never do long distance really but can hit 50mpg urban driving slowly
I used to get exactly the same as Lee, but down to mid 30's in winter. However I also found that anything above 90 and the mpg dropped massively, also if fully loaded or carrying anything on the back the cars MPG was awful.

In my experience, the civic was excellent once warm around town and on fast b roads. It wasnt good when cold for short journeys (as my commute was) and was awful at high (above 90mph) speeds.

i never had diesel before i remember my old s man diesel vauxhall ascona did need araund 60 miles on motorway to be warm and be economical but i did not know really todays diesel will still have same issue but no problem this car is too good to use it for tesco shopping wifes car is always hany for any short jounrney than.

as soon as i get the car i will take it to brighton and back lets see what my figures gonna be
do u think milage plays a big role in that as well????
will high milage cause engine to be more juicy??

I'm doing 80 miles a day mostly motorway driving with cruise control on at about 65mph. I'm getting 49 mpg average over the last 3000 miles. I average about 550 - 600 miles on afull tank.

My top tip is don't brake! ..........

I currently am averaging 42.3MPG which has involved about 300 miles of motorway driving (however 1.5 hours was crawling) and the other 200 miles in the city.

Now my trip to work is only 1 mile away so I believe it wouldn't be worth me putting the engine on and letting it warm up before moving on would it.

Hi, Ive just been on a trip to heathrow and back from Lincoln in my new 1.8 EX auto ( not I shift) and returned an average MPG of 32, so i wish I had the diesel.

Honda said that I need to reset the display regular to get a true figure as it had done short journeys before then, still dissapointed though.

Yay! ....the boss is back :D
Currently getting 40mpg town only with lights every 200 yards.
Mainly short trips of 3-4 miles.

I have had considerably more than 60 mpg motorway only....with a few minor mods :facepalm:
Best ever was 52.5 mpg before mods.
@ 1800rpm in 6th
