I do little inner city driving, probably average 15%. Suburban is probably 50-60% most tanks, average speed 60kmph with sporadic stops except winter. I plan to report about 40-50% city driving based on this, sort of a "correction" to reflect what I think true city driving would be.

I had two Honda Civics from new, put 270K on the 01 and 148K on the 08. Neither one changed much for gas mileage, but I do drive them easy for the first couple tanks. I think the break in mileage increase is an anachronism that has exaggerated effects with newer engines. Hopefully my 2012 CRV will prove me wrong though, got 33mpg first tank. I do know thatthe first oil change will be different oil, less moly. The dealer says the mileage should go up after that but the civic didn't.
