hey guys i have a y8 mill .002 with 2layer HG, aem CAI, Kamakazie 4-1, greedy cat back..timing is at 14*

thing is i always check my mpg to see where i'm at..today i fill up 8.256 gallon and everytime i fill up i reset my trip...i was sitting at 311 with only 8.256 fill up last time i fill up i had 366 and i fill up with 9.115 gallon..

do the 96-98 civic come with a 10gallon tank or 12 gallon tank??

i drive 45ish mile to work 5days a weak, 90ish mile each day..so i always watch my mpg.. anyone else has the same mod what can comment on mpg??

well if you reset your trip last time you filled it up than you used 8.256 (+/-
a little) gal. to drive 311 miles and my calculator says you got 37.669 miles to the gallon. pretty damn good! It does not matter what size tank you have when calculating mpg. :hammer:

That mileage seems right for your setup. AEM cai is da key :)

With the y8, cai, 4-1 header, and custom 2" catback, I usually get 34-36 on my sucky Autovalue oxygen sensor. Still runs a little rich, I go through plugs every 10k miles. Can't wait to see what mileage will be after I finally can afford the $175 OEM sensor.

since you milled the head I assume your running high octane. If that is the case, you could probably advance the spark timing a little bit, and that would increase your power and also help your MPG. Although with the mods you have you are right on avg. as far as mpg.
