you CX in 4th = a DX in 5th.........

BUT there is a small catch..........

If your CX burns oil (1 quart per 1500 miles or less) running it in 4th gear (dx 5th gear) the higher rpms and more oil useage will overheat and clog the close coupled cat.......I know, I just did it to a buddys car!!!!!!

He got 38 mpg in his 95 CX, I thought I could do better using 4th.........almost toasted the motor in the process.

BTW the car was MUCH better on the hills using 4th gear.

Try your car in 4th @ 70mph, if the temp gauge goes beyond normal (9 o'clock is BAD!) forget the idea.
