    Hello all;

    After completey tuning up my 91 civic si D16A6 i took an 1100 mile roadtrip to see my family. Well i'm impressed because this was the 1st long trip i took with the Honda since i got it last year and the gas mileage was ABSOLUTLEY AWSOME!!!!!!

    At and average speed of 65Mph on the freeway i averaged 37Mpg WOW!!! Now that blows me away, with a car that has 150,000 miles on it and still gets that kind of mileage wait-a-go Honda!!

    Very Happy
    Chet

    Got about 30 mpg from PismoBeach, Cali to Denver, Co, and that was with my AFR's at 13-13.5 doing 95-110 almost the whole way. I love my integra.

    I burned off a full tank of gas at 130+mph up 95 in Florida. Filled up, floored it until it was empty. Refuled and a milage check revealed 29mpg. That was balls-out flying.

    1990 CRX Si, had the basics.. H/I/E/Chip, blah blah..

    i just went to the beach.. i got 32.4 on the way there and it was much better coming back.. i used 1/2 tank going there.. i refilled and used a 1/4 coming back.. it was about 100 something degrees when i left here.. but it was night when i drove home ..sooo.. the cooler air helped alot and the fact that i wasnt stuck doing 55 on a 2 lane road like the way there
