This week was the first time commuting in my Civic hx and after my fillup tonight I've already achieved my goal of 50 mpg....lol. I'm shocked I was able to keep the car at 68 mph and still get that kind of mileage.

Well, once my Scangauge gets here I'll see if I can hit 55 mpg. I love this car!!! .....and so does my wallet!!!

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Awesome. What kind of hypermiling are you doing?

I coast as much as possible in traffic, down hills, and at lights, keep my speed between 65/70 mph, try to keep it in lean burn mode, and keep the AC off or as low as possible so the compressor doesn't cycle on as much.

I think that if I towed my car it would still manage to get under fifty miles to the gallon.

Welcome and good luck!
