iLLeFFeKt CiViC said:how many miles a gallon/tank do you get?
you do mostly city or highway driving? i see you're from queens (me too) so most likely you're in stop and go traffic all the time.
any mods done to the car?
things that you can check and/or replace are:
brakes (to make sure calipers release fully and that they dont drag)
That's not too bad of mileage.... I try to keep off the gas pedal and drive like a grandma to preserve the gas. The octane is alot lower here in Colorado...I think ours is 87 octane for the regular unleaded. I use Shell gas, and it seems to run well so I don't feel the need to go up to mid-grade. I used to do that, and I felt like I was spending more money for nothing because I didn't see any significant changes when I used a higher octane.///M3ssican said:yeah the best I have ever gotten was 299
getting 150 at half tank point
Dont you have any lower grade of octane?Marty2916 said:For some reason my 96 civic has been drinking a lot of gas lately. I pump 89 octane when I go get gas and I keep the car tuned. Does anyone have any ideas of ways to get better gas mileage?

Damn you guys are getting horrible gas mileage it seems. I thought i was gettin bad and i get anywhere from 26-34.
.......And how does it help keep the fuel system cleaner?Marty2916 said:there are lower octane gas that I can pump into my ride, however 93 oct helps clean the fuel system when you add a fuel injection cleaner. It is always a good idea every now and then to pump 93 oct into your ride. It does not impove the performance but it may help keep the fuel system a little cleaner.
