11.9 isn't unreasonable for short winter drives. 33 is unreasonable though. but maybe it's some kind of weird glitch. reset it and keep an eye on it.

Could you have been idling for awhile? I wouldn't worry, it might take a little while so the numbers average out.

Well this shows previous drive so thats the full last tank I think? Because I dont reset it, or how does that work?

and no idling, usually just use adaptive cruise control and drive from Hamilton to Missauga on the QEW every day

Have you tried............. looking in your owner's manual?

I think you may have had a super short cold drive with some idling the last time you started this car.

'Previous drive' should literally be your previous drive, the very last time the car was on. Did you turn on the car, let it idle and/or drive for a very short distance? That will give you an extremely poor fuel economy number for that particular 'drive'.

Yes your car is broken, send it to me for proper disposal for only $199.99 disposal fee.

33 sounds right for starting an cold engine and drive only a block or two.

don't be a mean RFDer to the newbee.
OP, your car is not broken, don't listen to this guy. Neither is your fuel consumption, not broken. You might be though

I just realized that Civic no longer has the infotainment screen sticks out. It looks so much better now.

You are overpaying by $199. You missed original post, it's honda civic. Why would you spend more than a loony?

Flux capacitor is broken, hence the high gas mileage

Winter drives up fuel consumption. My 2018 Corolla went from 7l/100km to a whopping 8.4l/100km. I'm pretty happy with this gas sipper :-)
