    I've driven my Formula for about 3 miles, and it sucked down a 1/4 tank. That's a 32 gallon tank, mind you.

    I won't bore you with the non-hondas, but here are my specs:

    My CRX averages 40 sometimes 45 mpg. The best I ever got was from the Ohio / PA border to Connecticut, plus some, at 52 mpg. It's incredible.

    The Civic gets 30 mpg now, but my cat is dead. I got 40ish with it when I first got it.

    I feel cheated when I refill and the trip meter is below 350 miles.

    your tires have a lot to do with your mileage, get them fully inflated

    I get around 220 to 240 miles out of my 10-gallon tank. And that's mashing around the twisties quite regularly. I'm pretty happy with that because I'm in VTEC half the time. Just stay out of VTEC and you should get about the same mileage as your old civic. If the difference is that severe, maybe something is wrong with your car.

    I used to get 30-35 miles to the gallon in the LS Civic.
    I get about 15-20 in the porsche,
    The blown up accord was gettin 25-30.
    I used to get 35+ in the saturn when I tried to, or I would get around 30.
    Less than 20 in the saab, and it wasn't even fun.
    Never checked but guessing around 30 in the old rabbit (I was going to restore it, but just never did)
    Like 20-25 in the Dodge Caravan
    And I got a whole 6 miles to the gallon in the shitty ass f-100 3 years ago.

    Since I drive for a living right now, I put 70 miles on my car last night, I'm at a 1/4 tank already and I just filled up Thursday morning.

    I get anywhere from 20-24 city depending on my driving. I doubt i'll get that good this time, I'm at the 1/4 tank mark with 185 miles on the trip odo... and with that I'm making roughly 18 mpg... :(

    my civic gets around 30 mpg or about 350 miles to the tank. That is with regular city driving with some high reving a third of the time.

    Very true. I get 36 mpg with my d16z6, but when the tires are underinflated it's around 29 mpg.
