Best gas mileage I've ever recorded was this weekend driving from North Carolina to New Jersey all highway made 380 miles and when I filled up it only let me fill 9.22 gallons so I could have easily made 400 miles on a tank. I have crower stage 2 cam AEM V2 and HP header/test pipe and megan exhaust. I drove 75-80mph the whole way.

I keep records of everything with the civic. I regularly get 37+ mpg in the winter. In the summer 44. On three ocasions I've gotten 50 mpg (honest). Each time it was nonstop 270 highway miles. My driving is old man easy, 55 at most, no passengers, 80% highway.

04 dx coupe, MT, 40k on car, AEM SRI, iridium plugs, no other engine mods

summer, i seem to average 32 mpg, got 39 mpg once on the way down to NJ, with some use of a/c. this winter, i've been getting ~26-30, not sure why. maybe i'm using more gas letting the car idle for 10 minutes to warm up.

03 EX Sedan with snow tires,

Was only getting around 28 mpg this winter (all highway miles). Then I remembered my last oil change was from a mechanic I had never been to before. Had the oil changed again, made sure 5W30 was put in, and now I'm getting 35mpg (all highway again).

The oil you use makes a difference. Using the thinner 5W20 will probably give a few more mpg's. Also, I've found that a dirty air filter will also kill your gas mileage.

Best Mileage

I have an 06 LX with about 35K miles. I've gotten 550 miles on a tank, all highway driving. With a mixture of city and highway, or even mostly (80-90%) city driving, I have never gotten below 400.

My mpg sucks. Most I've gotten out of a full tank is about 330 miles and thats after topping off and going 10+ miles after gas light went on, but I do 90% city. Another reason why I wish I had manual.

When I first got the car, I did around 450 on a tank as my best. After tinkering with it, I average around 350 now

Oh yeah, 50/50 city/highway
