Hi ,I have a 2010 HondaCivic DX-G sedan,that has about 43,000 km +, I have just recently looked up hypermiling and changed my driving habits,and seen quite a response at the pumps, just recently pushed my mpg's to 49.5, without the use of any scan gauge,tire pressure slightly up,cruise on,rpm around 2100,with a speed of 103 kph,. What a difference.

Congrats on saving some fuel so easily and cheaply. Amazing, huh? Is this a manual or automatic DX-G?

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.

You'll do well to install a coolant/block heater in your Civic, considering your location in Winterpeg!

Congrats on your mileage improvement. Get the MPG gauge - it turns driving into a fuel & money saving game.
