Does anyone know the shift speeds for the higher gears, especially 7-8 and 8-9? It's very hard to tell. It seems our mileage is better at 73-75 than at 70-72. Not complaining, just curious!

I can now display current gear on my ScanGauge. Next chance I get on the road I'll check it out. I usually see 8th around town on speed limits of 45 and 50, but will try a slow acceleration to see when those 2 actually shifts.

That 7-8 shift at light throttle is where my transmission makes that "rumble strip" noise which, according to Honda, is a normal characteristic with PPs that have a transmission cooler. I meet with a Honda rep and an arbiter Dec. 3 to try to get Honda to do something about it.

I heard about that. Weird! Only thing I could think of was maybe cavitation in the lines.

With a very light throttle, 7-8 @ 48 mph, 8-9 @ 65 mph.
Thanks! Wonder why our mileage is better at a higher speed. Yes, comparing apples to apples on the same stretches of interstate in similar conditions.

Heh? The speeds the OP listed would indicate he is always in 9th. (73-75 than at 70-72.)
But if strictly going by the dash indications, I wouldn't put a lot of faith in those numbers.

That's why I asked. Thought it was odd, but remember someone said they thought the shift points were at higher speed. To reiterate, comparing apples to apples, same roads (flat I-95 in NC, SC, GA), different average speeds, using the dash calculator. More than once we've had better mileage going a bit faster.

Areodynamics???
Earlier on, no one could come up with why the PP mpg was 1 less than the Pilot, other than 1 more inch of clearance.
Maybe different turbulence.
Just how much difference is actually being reported?

The only other reference to a 8-9 shift I've heard of was the Jeep use of the ZF - something around 90+ mph.

Could you please post the ScanGauge codes for current gear?
Thanks!
