I just did a test on my eg coupe being a daily and I'm getting 34.2 combined mpg out of her. What's everyone else getting?
17.75 to be exactFACT: Using higher octane than your motor requires is a waste of money and can be bad for your valves. If you don't get any pinging or knocking from 87 then use it, mileage may even be better, higher octane fuel takes longer to burn off completely and can leave deposits on your valves because of this.
Damn Slo only 213 from full to empty? That's like 25 MPG at best I bet! Fix that thing!
yeah, I tend to be a little heavy footed on the interstate. on ramps, I go 5k 1st through 3rd. by 4th Im at 100 or so and drop to 5th and hold around 85mph.I average close to 40 mpg when I'm off boost in my '93 dx hatch.
This is how I drove my 05 civic. Still got 35mpg on the worst of tanks. Except my fillups were every 2 days (120 miles a day).17.75 to be exact

BUT!!! I haven't drove in like a week, so I still have a full tank lol. fill ups usually last me 2-3 weeks
you are calculating entire tank.well, I do have a tps issue and at times smell fuel. not too worried about it until I do my build....whenever that is
Mostly snake oil, but can help if your injectors are 5+ yrs old. It's not a bad idea to use a bottle once ever other year. I recommend Techron.I didn't realize that it's bad for the valves. I was just trying to put the best stuff in her. Do those fuel additives (i.e. Marvel mystery oil, Lucas, etc) actually help or are they just snake oil?
