I just recently bought a 2018 Accord sport 1.5t and just driving around in the city with a/c on it says I’m averaging 19.5 mpg. The car only has 60 miles on it and I don’t take it past 2000rpms. Barely even touching the pedal. Also this is while in economy mode. Haven’t even put in sport mode yet.

If you're in the city, you're probably lugging the engine quite a bit in Economy (watch the tach). Not sure if that's the most economical way. I would try turning it off in the city. I drive in Normal or Sport in the city.

BTW, I initially thought there were only two modes, Eco and Sport, did not realize Normal was a third setting until I noticed my wife was driving with both buttons off (DUH).

How do you get/put it in normal mode... I wasn't aware of that either.

Unclick both Eco and Sport buttons. It does seem counter intuitive because they kinda behave like radio buttons. You click one, the other turns off, but if you click the button again then both are off!

Gotcha, thanks... I'll try it.
