hi mugen -

I merged your two threads into this previous, existing one. Better to post updates here rather than starting a new thread each time.

I would like to see specs on that mileage, speed, conditions and so on, that is why EPA mileage is nice is that it's all under the same conditions.
So what mileage does the car get at 65mph on the highway if I have the cruse control set?

The NA VX is just getting the finishing touches on the tune today.
We came in with good numbers about 55MPG highway on cruise. This was using no hypermiling techniques and regular inflation on tires and i will be doing some grill block and warm engine mods. After those are complete and on a warmer day (this testing was done at 29deg F "cold") i can see it making 60MPG. and again that is not using EOC and PandG techniques.


I have 2 HX cars that will be tuned and tested this weekend and i should have Data from those in the next week. shooting for similar numbers as the VX 50-60mpg

***teaser*** both the VX and HX have lean burn in 3rd 4th and 5th. and have modified maps for both the lean burn and an acceleration map that when the throttle is depressed more than 60% the Vtec kicks in and gets the car moving quickly.

Hint: You need to provide speed data to give your MPG figures context.

Probably just an oversight. They seem pretty set on being able to go 65 - 70 mph.

Looking forward to more clarification on the testing measures and duration, HX results, and of course the crazy turbo version results!

Keep up the good work!

Yup: we're all about the data here! The more details/information provided about the MPG-measurement procedure, the better.

thanks Metro for the clarification, the tests on the highway were done with cruise set at 55, 65, and 70 MPH and so i guess that the average would be around 65MPH on cruise netted aprox. 55MPG. again with no other techniques used just set the cruise and normal air pressure in tires and no other mods to car.

That's pretty impressive. If you don't mind me asking, how much are you selling your cars for?
