If Ecky hasnít addressed it yet, reinstalling a smooth underpanel is good for 7 mpg. Before doing that, you might consider replacing that section of rubber tubing on the gas line under the gas tank that was installed by the Honda dealership with a more durable brass fitting. Good luck with the car, and with current gas prices, Aerocivic will save you a bundle of money.
So far Iíve only driven the AeroCivic in cold and unfavorable conditions and my mileage has suffered as a result, and Iím still learning how to drive it properly (new to lean burn and Honda engines in general) but itís already leaps and bounds ahead of where ky Saturn was
