Hello!

My name is Cole and I joined today. I just purchased a 1992 Civic VX, and I am looking forward to see what type of mileage I can pull out of this car with normal driving techniques (probably no EOC or P&G) but keeping an eye on good driving habits. I am looking forward to getting to know you guys and gals better in the future. Thanks in advance for the warm welcomes.

Still too cold for warm welcomes... Settle for a thawed one?
Good luck with the Civic and your FE goals.

Welcome to EM, Cole. Expect to get 25%-30% above '08 EPA with moderate changes to your driving habits, and 65%-75% above EPA with extreme changes.

...and even more than that when you ad modifications on top of the driving technique.

Welcome to the forum - you've got one of the grand daddies of the MPG monsters (from the pre-hybrid era). Lots of fun ahead.

Feel free to add it to the garage.

Welcome to the site Cole, glad you joined the fun. You can get awesome mileage out of these Civics, there's quite a few people on here driving them. What shape is yours in? Any planned mods?
