I recall someone jacked a TSX up and ran it with zero load on the wheels in 6th gear and the computer only registered 45mpg (although this was at 3000rpm). That's kind of depressing.

The FA20's 12.5 compression ratio and D4-S injection really help. I think most people on this website would be able to pull off 40mpg tanks or at least 35 with a lot of city driving in that car.

Consumer Reports did a little better (30 MPG) in their testing:

I'd like to hypermile one on the way to the racetrack.

Drove slow.

AC off, restricted to 50 mph or less, I don't doubt it's possible.

When I drove a friend's FR-S, I was surprised by its mileage, 37 mpg(car computer) in a mostly city route. I was also surprised by the rather large gap between 1st and 2nd gear in a 6 speed.

Crap man, even my accord v6 can do that, and on regular gas to boot. I think...Can't really know for sure without a flat road around here.
