the '85 civic I used to have got 42.2mpg without any mods at all, civic vx wheels re 9 pounds and cheap, they also bolt right on, the manual tranny needs new fluid every 2 years, the carburetors are complicated but if you try to make them simple they will drop you gas mileage and burn up your engine fast, you can get all the parts to do a top end carb rebuild, it takes about 2 hours and makes all the carb problems go away.
stock intake and exhaust is the only way to go with these cars, they will not run right with anything else, oem from honda is the best way to go, mufflers from them have a life time warenty for as long as you own the car and don't cost much more then discount ones, they will also make the car run right.
