I like mine alright too, but the EX has the worst attributes for FE out of all 6th gen civics:

-worst gear ratios (most torque-y mid range)
-VTEC engine (more torque plz?)
-heaviest curb weight

Keep in mind that the first two are features the tuners and ricers are looking for. I never take advantage of any of these features as a hypermiler. Not the worst car by any means, but if you have an opportunity like that, by all means TAKE IT!
