    I just picked up an 02 Accord coupe V6 with 70k on it. I'm barely getting 20MPG and I drive a lot of highway miles. I got a brand new stock air filter and just got a tranny flush cause I know these transmissions are notorious for dropping around 70k. What else should I check, or is this the best mileage I'm gonna get.

    O2 sensor. Plugs, wires, cap, button , DO A TUNE UP !!! that will make a difference . 70k you shouldnt need a fuel filter. But go ahead and replace that too .

    OEM plugs and wires are the way to go I've been told. Cheaper and they give you the best performance. How bout the distributer, stock or aftermarket? Any advice.

    I believe that Honda Products are the way to go .
