mod n00b
 
I started changing my driving habits about a year ago. Just looking for a few ideas to help out the MPG a bit. I know I have the wrong car for this, but I like something that is a little sporty. I have a 02 Civic Si...

Welcome to the forum. This is one of best forum that I have been. No bashing, no show-off. Just focused discussion on ways to save fuel.

I myself drive an Ep3 Civic. You are right, its hard to get good gas mileage out of this porker civic. The best I got was 40mpg with extreme measures. I got 32mpg out of the next tank only. Considering EPA rating is 23 for city and 28 for hwy, at 36.6mpg you are doing fantastic.
