Congrats on the CRX find! Lucky you.

I had an '85 breadbox Civic hatchback for a while with the same engine (don't remember which transmission - though it was manual). This was before fuel economy became a big interest for me, but I do remember being genuinely shocked at how good the mileage was just by keeping it to 90 km/h (55 mph) on trips on rural roads.

Are you sure it has manual brakes? I don't remember that.

Anyway, welcome to the site.
