97 Civic CX - '97 Honda Civic CX

Welcome

Hello All, I started reading a few months ago, and have been applying what I have learned from day one. I have been using a scan gauge for about a month and must say it is key to making improvements. Using it while driving the same route over and over you can make improvements daily. I drive on stop and go hilly country roads and get an average of about 42mpg in my 97 Civic CX hatchback. On the Highway I can increase that to around 62 using what I have learned here.

Thanks.

Welcome to EM! Sounds like you're doing really well right out of the gate. You will really love summertime, MPG season.

Yes welcome to the community. Very nice numbers. Be sure and fill out the garage when you get a chance. It's a very good tool to help track the improvements.

Welcome to ecomodder!

I'm anxious to see what a 6th generation CX hatchback can do
