    I have a 95 EG VX with the D15B and 5 speed. Running stock P08 ECU with 1 wire O2. My mpg is 28.
    Kinda sucks, anyone getting better than that? Wheels are 205/40/17.

    Makes you wonder, WTF? I swapped in a 4 wire O2 and hooked up the heater circuit. I'll see after the next 100 miles.

    Go to some 15s or 16 inch wheels or find some wheels that are much lighter than what you got.

    I'm getting like 46/hwy in a cam'd/bolt-on D15B VTEC in my 88 HB(drafting semi's)...cruise speed was slow though(though my rpms were around 3800-4000 the whole trip).

    I changed the O2 to a uni Bosch 4 wire. MPG went to 39.5.

    Now I would like to trade off my rims and tires. They are Motegi MR7's. Just some cheap rims, a little rash on 1 and only a few nicks in the others. Dark grey. Will trade for 15's or 16's.
