Hi Guys ,

I have a 2018 Accord EXL 2T ( ~12000 miles ). On the dash it said 15 miles to empty ( avg mileage ~ 24 mpg ) & when i filled the tank - it only took - 12.7 gallons . Isn't it a 15 gallon gas tank ? Am I missing something here ?


Thanks

It's actually a 14.8 gallon tank. My guess is Honda has that miles to empty setting to show lower miles than the car will actually go. Probably some legal person advised them to do that vs. having it set to the actual miles left to prevent someone running out of gas trying to go the actual miles.... IE: lawsuit. :unsure:
