Haha .. yes this is the '06 HCH.

Anyway I read into the story and I do see the point where Honda broke the rules by updating the ECU firmware which dropped the real world mpg.

The original pre-2008 mpg rating is correct but seems to have dropped 3-5mpg after the ECU reflash which Honda did not communicate to the customer base.

The reflash was to ease the battery load to prolong its life.

What Honda should have done is keep things as is and be responsible for the shortened battery life span and even recall and replace them with an improved battery which by 2010 should be available.
