Welcome! Sounds like you have a great, fun car. Many of us used to be classic
performance guys (hot rodding, racing) that have even turned 180 degrees, or live a mixed life w feet still in both world's.

Even though it was a tight fit, (I'm 6 4" w long legs) I enjoyed a nice '72 Honda AZ 600
Coupe I used to have, so I have a feeling of what your car is like.

Check out the 65, and 100 tips to help you get better mpg.

I suggest your exact questions be posted in the Ecomodders Central section.

Again, welcome! If you treat your driving life like a bank account, and keep it healthy;

My '87 CRX makes sure that I have fun in all respects!
you can still make withdrawals at times. (read more aggressive driving)

I still enjoy some canyon type running briskly through switchbacks, and such taking
the racing line. For me, I use gravity to its full extent, one can still feel a little
racy, while still basically using NO throttle deeper than saving type driving, continuing
to stay away from using brakes as much as possible.

We all have favorite roads.

It is fun to revisit a favorite to see if one can improve, and run it cleaner.

It's also a blast to do a brand new road, and know you are doing it well. Especially, if
you are two states away from home, and you are being followed by a local who knows it well, but you are still smooth enough to keep that person way behind!

Look forward to seeing pics of your car once you have enough posts in!
