Hello from S Ontario Canada! 07 Civic...SGII etc.

Hi all,

I'm from Southern Ontario and have an 07 Civic LX Auto 1.8L R18. I have HCH wheels and the proper size Michelin tire for them, a ScanGaugeII, rear wheel well inner HCH covers, lower/upper grill block of foam pipe insulation for now...lower block of black corroplast should be done today in 2 or 3 sections. I'm running waterless coolant to prevent overheating issues.

Last long road trip fully loaded (2 adults and a ton of luggage) and quite cold temps(-28C) travelling of 3200KM's yielded 5.833 Liters per hundred km (40.32 US MPG). I was also travelling through the central US where I unfortunately did not drive slow...120KM avg (about 75MPH).

Anyway, look forward to learning from you all.

Scott

40 mpg at that speed is good.

Thanks elhigh , I got lazy and used cruise control after the first 1/3 of the trip. Was seeing approximately 44.5 without. I'm old and started getting foot/leg cramps

Oh yeah, I'll be making a 2,000km trip next weekend. We'll see if my corroplast lower grill block is more efficient than pipe lagging! I'm sure it will be.

When you take your next trip. Stop every hour or so and walk around so you don't get a case of thromboflabitus (spelling?) as I did in a one gas stop from Atlanta to Cleveland.
And use the cruise so your leg is not all tensed up for hours on end.

Thanks M1! I've always been a long trip person but my one day maximums are slowly getting shorter!

welcome

Welcome Scott,

Those are really good numbers. We had an 2005 Civic SE Auto with similar modifications (chloroplast upper and lower grill blocks, ScanGauge II) and the best I ever got (hot middle of summer perfect conditions) in over two years with the car was 5.8L/100km. Well done for bigger engine, winter conditions, and faster speeds - very impressive.

Welcome,
Benphyr.
