New with 96 Civic Hatchback

Hey guys glad to be a part of these forums! I'm Travis and this is my 1996 Midori Green Civic. It's got just over 200,000 miles, and just achieved 40mpg using some of the strategies I've been reading on here. I look forward to learning more and meeting you guys.

Oh and just in case anyone cares, here are some of the things I've done to it so far:
Polished Mugen RNR wheels
Acura Integra GSR cloth seats
Megan Racing coilovers
and a lot of OEM extras

Welcome to the site. It sounds like you're already doing pretty good with the car. Do you have any modifications planned for the car?

I have a few ideas in mind for the car. Mainly some JDM modifications though. Been searching these forums to find some simple aero mods I could try.

Welcome!

That top photo is great ... like the colour, too.

Top bit of advice is to get a fuel economy display in there. Instant and resettable average feedback will let you adjust the nut behind the wheel even more. Fortunately you've got OBD2, so lots of options.

Right, I've been researching MPGuino the past week. Do you have any other recommendations?

And thanks! The color is called Midori green, and they only came out in 1996 models. glad you like it!
