    Looking at buying a 2.7 4x4 auto AC. I haven't seen very many posts on what kind of mpg's people are getting with the automatic. Only reason I'm looking at the 4 cyl is for the fuel economy. Were paying $5.50 a gallon here in atlantic canada right now.

    Im in Nova Scotia so I feel your pain with the gas prices. Not sure about the 4x4 auto but my 2010 4x4 5 speed was getting 22.3 mpg. That was non highway driving and with stock tires.

    mainly because Im badass lol.
    But I do drive very easy, and use the scanguage to aid my habits. Add in that our gas doesnt have the ethanol yours probably does and thats probably why. Im still running the stock filter too!
    last fillup was with the light on and 24.8mpg. My girlfriend also drove it that tank and she blows at getting good mileage. Also ran a bit of 4x4 to keep it in use (maybe 10k)

    lol, gotta be the oil too then. Apparently the 2011's have 0w20 synthetic. Also I heard the gears are longer (not 5th)

    OK...I gotta go buy that scanguage. Did you buy yours on-line? Last fill up at 425 miles (light on) averaged 22.7 MPG. That's about normal and I'm 70% hwy and 30% town/on-base (Air Force).

    I think it's time I quit procrastinating on this scan guage! ;)

    I don't want the manual. I drive an 08 civic si 6 speed manual right now and wouldn't not consider a automatic in a car but in a truck I just want to throw it in drive and go. I'm planning on picking up a weekend car down the road. Anyone else with the 4x4 auto? If so how is it on highway inclines, can maintain your speed without putting your foot to the floor.

    NO FUCKING WAY! Thats the last car I owned too lol
    anyways, i tested the auto and in the end, I wouldnt get it. It was just too much of a truck for that little auto to overcome IMO. You would be constantly flooring it to get power. Like I say to many people who ask, I drove all 4 combos (2.7, 4, auto, standard) and the 2.7 manual feels almost as powerful as the 4L auto. If your gonna get auto I would go for the 4L myself.
    By any chance do you lease that civic?

    I have a 2011 4x4 auto w/ac 2.7L. I have been averaging about 20-21 mpg, that is mixed driving of highway/urban/4x4 in the Las Vegas, NV region. Having talked to some others with the Taco Pre-runners V6 2x4 they get about the same average mpg.

    I gave up a the extra power for the highway and the lower price tag but have about the same mpg.

    I got the manual and I haven't driven one since I was 18. I used to have a 2005 DCABLB 4.0 automatic and I haven't really noticed a decrease in power with the 2.7 l manual. Best descision I made!!
