Information grabbed from The Honda Fact Book The dyno graph from Honda on the VX: PS = Metric Horsepower (very close to international HP) = 92 HP (international) Green Shading = kgm = Torque (kilogram meters); 13.9 (kg m) = 100.538893 ft. pounds Blue Shading = g/PS-h = Fuel Consumption = grams of fuel consumed per hour per horsepower at a given engine speed. Weight of one US gallon of fuel ~6.5Lbs. = 2,948 grams. Anyone care to make a little conversion to Gallons per hour from the information provided as a reference to future information seekers? I don't have the time to put into that right now and though it would be good to share. Hope this info helps out for the archives. __________________ Last edited by TomO; 05-27-2009 at 03:37 PM..

Is that about where the VTEC kicks in? __________________ "I got 350 heads on a 305 engine. I get 10 miles to the gallon. I ain't got no good intentions." - The Drive By Truckers.
