Yes, you need to edit your 2nd fuel up, as you input over 1000 miles using just a few litre of fuel, showing as 160 UK MPG here. Are you using trip reading or odometer to track?

I deleted ALL the fill-ups and will be starting over from 'scratch'.

There are two obviously incorrect vehicles that currently are responsible for more than 1/4 of the 2017 Honda CR-V miles in the system, yet show fuelups for several years. It seems the users involved have reclassified some older car as a 2017 CR-V. They are dropping the reported mileage in a significant way:

Does anyone from Fuelly actually read this forum?

Take a look at the 2017 CR-V fuel-up statistics:
2017 Honda CR-V MPG - Actual MPG from 73 2017 Honda CR-V owners

You will see 2 bell-shaped curves side by side; the one on the left from the 2 cars that aren't 2017 CR-Vs, and the one on the right from cars that are.

If manual intervention isn't allowed, at least you could filter out fuel-ups from prior to the model year (or even 2 years prior to the model year) as an algorithmic way of removing bad data.

I agree with Larryd. I was researching the 2017 CRV and noticed the obviously misplaced rogue vehicles. Can the moderators not clean up the CRV entries so the average MPG can be compared to other years?

S report buttons on vehicle's profile page would be helpful.

I agree, I found this "BMW" just now and was looking for a way to report it just so the data could be more trustworthy:

Goes both ways. I got an honest high mileage in my Civic, but as an outlier the algorithm tosses mine out as most are getting significantly less that I am, working for the mileage. Is what it is, I know I'm honest but there are folks who would fluff up their mileage or not pay attention to the numbers they're inputting.

Then there are the people who get horrible mileage simply because of their regular driving cycle. A short commute in which the car can never fully warm up will drag down the efficiency of even the best hybrids.

There low fuel efficiency isn't do to the car. So that data is also tossed in order to not give the impression the car model is that bad.

When you drill down while researching a car model, you will eventually get an option to view the outliers.
