Hello people

i am extremely new to this and just created an account today. I own a 1995 honda civic ex coupe. i just had my engine rebuilt in december and have only put about 6k miles on it since then. when i had it rebuilt i had them put in high compression pistons 12:1 compression ratio, 5 angle valve job, port and polish and had the engine completely blue printed and much more. I recorded my first fuel log today when i came home from visiting my girlfriend in eugene oregon and my question is if anyone has achieved this kind of mileage on an engine with this high of comopression? i also used non ethanol supreme 92 gasoline. my car is also extremely low (stanced) as you can tell in my photo. but i managed to achieve 50.5 mpg on my trip which was better then my dad completely stock 1.5L 8V 1992 honda civic cx hatchback (barely better) lol. thanks for your time
