Just made my first gas log!
 
Hello everyone, I have been looking over these forums for a few weeks now. This website is addicting!

I have a 1998 Honda civic, 1.6l manual.

This car is very weak in power, however, it is capable of huge mpg numbers.

I have enjoyed my visits here (especially the diy section) and appreciate everyone's kindness!

I am starting a project with this vehicle. If anyone is interested in looking over my vehicle, I have spent a few hours creating a google document located here........

Welcome to ecomodder.

Low power is OK.
1) You don't need much power to cruise along at 50-60 mph.
2) Acceleration will put a fairly high load on a low powered engine, so you'll get in the high BSFC region and make the most HP at the best fuel consumption.

Welcome to the site.

You must come from owning and driving v6 or v8 engined vehicles. I've never daily driven a car with larger than a 2.0L engine (I have of course driven them from time to time), and I'd never say they're very low power. I'd say they're more than adequate to get me from point A to point B. You'll get used to it and I see you already are. 45 mpg is a pretty good start! :)

there are plenty of good 100hp engines, dont get me wrong... i can get up to 90 pretty easy.... all i was saying is... just that... its low power... 100hp is a great start for great gas mileage... lol

xxxxxxx

I started to work on the undercarriage. About 20 minutes into it, I started getting a sharp pain to my kidneys...

ended up with a kidney stone and an infection,

antibiotics are kicking my ass atm...

I will be fine, unfortunately this is my 3rd one.... everyone always says the 3rd child is the easiest to have.

I just got my tracking for the scan gauge!!
