Nice work! I just started seriously Ecodriving my '90 EX, and I'm up to 32 mpg, so I have some work. I guess I'll be looking at a '97 when this one finally dies!

I assume you have a manual transmission. What RPMs do you turn at 65 in 5th? I think mine's way too high, and that's contributing to the problem.
