8G VCM Mileage?

Just wondering what 8G J35 VCM-equipped Accords are doing for mileage, because I have to think they can do better than the 7G that runs all six pots 100% of the time (Hybrid notwithstanding).

Gotta be around mid 30s easily huh?

I know my 6-6 doesnt have VCM, I was just telling him what I got as a comparison factor. & VCM is wack. Its a marketing gimick if you ask me. Lower power with notso great mpg.

While the 8th V6 (sedan) does have VCM, it also has a lot more weight than the 7th gen, a much larger profile and probably more overall aerodynamic drag, and 3.5L vs 3.0L. The VCM running on, is it three cylinders?, helps maintain a higher average load on the cylinders that are firing which increases efficiency, but you still have 3.5L worth of friction hurting you vs only 3.0L. Consumer Reports reported that they got better mileage with the 7th gen V6 actually.
