Fueling Up for the Journey

Taking the family out on a weekend expedition? Spend less time looking for a gas station and more time on the road. Thanks to the 2018 Honda CR-V’s 14-gallon fuel tank, you can drive farther without having to stop for fuel as frequently. While the Honda CR-V does a great job protecting its fuel economy, there’s a few simple measures that you can take to ensure you’re getting the very best miles per gallon performance each time you get behind the wheel, things like:

  1. Honda CR-V ExteriorCheck Your Tire Pressure. Under-inflated tires put pressure on the engine and can account for a lowered MPG. Even 1 psi drop can have an effect. So, make it a habit to check the tire pressure and schedule regular tire rotations every six months.
  2. Oil and Filter Changes. Changing your engine oil every 3,000-5,000 miles is probably the most important way to ensure top fuel economy. Oil that isn’t regularly replaced will start to gunk up your engine, making it worker harder and dry up your fuel tank faster.
  3. Excess Cargo Weight. The 2018 CR-V has a towing capacity of 1,500 lb. Exceeding that will have an immediate effect on your vehicle’s fuel economy, so be mindful of how much you’re hauling and what you keep stored inside the cabin.
