Recent reviews are showing that many new owners of 2018 and 2019 Honda Accord Hybrids are not getting the fuel economy they expected when they bought their Honda Accord Hybrids. Honda advertises that the 2018 model gets 47 city/47 highway MPG, and the 2019 model gets 48city/48 highway MPG.
Some reviewers have even given five stars, but still complain about the low MPG:

“Beautiful, smooth, powerful Hybrid
I used to have a 2011 Honda Civic so this car is definitely an upgrade! I love my new Honda Accord Hybrid EX-L so far (1 week in). The mpg so far is about 40 miles to the gallon and I’m still trying to figure out how to drive to maximize my fuel efficiency…” (https://www.edmunds.com/honda/accord-hybrid/2019/consumer-reviews/?sorting=created%3Adesc)

“Great car, but not going to get 47mpg
I really like the way the car rides and handles…It is quick and I usually drive it in eco mode where it gets the best fuel economy (39mpg average over 2600 miles that I’ve kept track of). I use the sport mode here and there just for fun, the car is louder and throttle noticeably more responsive…Now, for the main selling point of this car, the fuel economy – like many others have said you are not going to get 47mpg unless you drive like a snail I guess (I’ve tried to drive very, very gently and still can’t get more than 42mpg), so that part is a bit disappointing for sure as 40mpg (which I think I’ll get my average up to, as it is 39mpg now) is way off the 47mpg mark.” (https://www.edmunds.com/honda/accord-hybrid/2018/consumer-reviews/?sorting=created%3Adesc)

“Great car… major Mileage disappointment
Love this car, except for one major thing. I bought a touring model in Nov of 2018. Car typically gets 37-38 mpg, Best so far is 40.6 over a tankful. And I baby this car trying to get the best mileage out of it. Dealer cannot figure out why a car that’s supposed to get 47 is doing that poorly. Honda??? You have any thoughts? Other than that it’s a magnificent vehicle. Just a bit frustrated about mileage.” (https://www.edmunds.com/honda/accord-hybrid/2019/consumer-reviews/?sorting=created%3Adesc)
