Hello from the boot state.
 
Hello all,

I'm in search of a few ways to improve the mileage on my 94' Accord. I acquired this car recently as an alternative vehicle to my Silverado (16mpg) which is costing 450$/month. I made an assumption based on word-of-mouth mileage estimates of Accords and thought it to be a 30+mpg car. Sadly, I've only been able to muster out 25.5 mpg. After reading opinions, I see an Accord is a poor choice and wouldn't get 30+ mpg brand-new in 94'. The "100+ hypermiling tips" have been very helpful and informative. I'm now searching for physical mods to my car to improve mpg.

Things that strike interest-

Load based cruise control
Cold start fast idle delete
Block heater.

Looking forward to chatting with everyone.

Welcome to the site. I'd defintely start with the 65+ mods list.

also take a look through the wiki for mod ideas. I took my car (epa 29) to 51 MPG so you can get good MPG .

Welcome to ecomodder.

What engine / transmission does the Accord have ?

Seeing it doesn't really deliver what you had hoped for, why not sell it on and buy something more efficient that will get 30 , 35 mpg and above ? Maybe trade it ?

Similar vintage Civics return far better mpg - especially with manual transmission and the HF / VX versions

Euromod- Its has a 2.2L VTEC SFI (F22B2) engine with an automatic transmission (P2A5). Selling the car is option I've considered. I'll definitely do some research on the Civic Hx/Hf. Thx.
