I'm back again, I currently have 2 1997 civic hx's. If you have any questions about lean burn post up.

To get the most out of a civic hx you need to do regular maintenance to the ignition system, primarily spark plugs and wires

It can be hard to determine when the car is in lean burn without any instrumentation. I highly reccomend just a simple vacuum gauge to see when your lean burn engages. The vacuum gauge is also very beneficial for staying in lean burn, and maximizing fuel mileage by showing if you have a steady foot on the pedal
