Honda Pilot: Gas Mileage

The Honda Pilot has a lot to offer with its high-quality EPA-estimated gas mileage:

2022 Pilot Trims with 2WD

2022 Pilot Trims with AWD

EPA-estimated City MPG

20 MPG1

19 MPG1

EPA-estimated Highway MPG

27 MPG1

26 MPG1

EPA-estimated Combined MPG

23 MPG1

22 MPG1

Fuel Tank Capacity



With the Honda Pilot’s EPA-estimated MPG and sizable gas tank, you’ll go far on the road. As we can see, the 2-wheel drivetrain offers better figures overall except for the city estimates, where all that stop-and-go is improved by all-wheel drivetrain.

This is in part thanks to the Pilot’s high-quality engine:

Engine 3.5L V6
Horsepower 280 HP
Torque 262 lb-ft

Coming in both 2-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive on most trims—except for the Elite and Black trims, which come with standard AWD—the Honda Pilot packs a punch.

How to Conserve Gas

2021 Honda Pilot White Irvine CAThe Honda Pilot’s EPA-estimated MPG is impressive, of course. However, you have the power to make those numbers go as high as they can with conservation tactics.

One of the top tips to conserve gas is to avoid idling whenever possible. Excess idling can burn through your gas unnecessarily. Avoid heavy traffic with lots of starts and stops and running the engine while not in motion.

Aside from idling, running the air conditioner can use up gas more quickly. Avoid running the air colder than it needs to be. Especially avoid idling the car with the air conditioner running.

Finally, when your tires are under-inflated, your gas mileage decreases, trying to make up for extra work. Make sure you keep your tires full

Fuel Efficiency is the Name of the Game

2021 Honda Pilot Gray Irvine CAHow does the Pilot maintain its EPA-estimated MPG? When it comes to preserving gas, the Pilot offers:

  • The Eco Assist™ System helps the driver maximize their fuel efficiency. The driver feedback system notifies the driver via a light on the dashboard, notifying the driver of its gas conversation rating. The ECON mode automatically limits some engine performance to conserve fuel.
  • Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) limits the use of six cylinders to three when driving on even terrains where less fuel is needed, maximizing fuel efficiency.
  • The Idle-stop system eliminates the need to worry about excess idling; when stopped for more than two seconds, the engine turns off automatically to avoid wasting gasoline.
  • Its 9-speed automatic transmission avoids unnecessary gas consumption compared to a manual transmission.

With the help of these gas-efficient features, the 2022 Honda Pilot was able to earn the California Air Resource Board (CARB) rating of Ultra Low Emission Vehicle, showcasing its efforts to conserve gas and the environment.
