What engine do you have?
What kind of mods do you have?
What kind of car?
How much does you gas tank hold?
What kind of gas do you use?
Also if your particualr with what brand mention it to.
and most importantly do you do HIGHWAY or city driving? and how do you drive?
I think this will help alot of people.
and there's a poll to see what gas people use.


I get 280-330 on a full tank. Mostly highway....but i go the avg of
80-100 mph. and the rpm is at 4000....and sometimes i go 120 ant the rpm is at 5000....I have 99 ciivc ex.....

my brothers 92 civic sedan with jdm b16a (i/e mods) can do 450-500km on a full tank of 98 RON fuel (sometimes with octane booster). the car is daily driven and is giving a beating at lots of red lights. he drives on highway and city frequently.

stock 95 EX engine (Whats the code for this?)
ram air intake
average of 200 miles to a tank. I never empty one past 13 dollars though. So I refill about every 7-9 gallons.
average about 25-26 mpg
89 octane
strictly city driving. No freeways, no highways, no open back country roads. I drive it soft mostly, sometimes hard. Its an automatic.

I drive a 2000 Honda Civic Si (B16A2)
Approximately 11 gallon tank and I get about 315 miles out of it but I fill her up before I get that No Fuel light comes on. That calculates to about 28.6 mpg. For now my only mod is my Greddy Evolution Cat-Back Exhaust and a drop in K&N air filter that doesn't do shit.:toothless Oh, I use Premium (93 octane).

I have a stock 95 Civic EX with 143,900 miles on it and I still get about 31 miles to a gallon. I drive about 50/50 city/highway and I drive it average (not to hard, not too soft). I have a system and a drop in K&N, thats about it. I use 89 or 93 octane depending on my money situation. Can someone tell me why I am still getting 31 miles to a gallon and everyone else is getting like 26-28??

I drive a 2000 civic ex, and i get about 220 miles to a tank (on average) and get anywhere from 24-28 mpg, but it's usually more towards the 24, depending on how much i drive the freeway, and how hard i drive it. My mileage may be a bit skewed though, because the town i live in is built into a bunch of hills, meaning a lot of uphill driving. I split my time about 60/40 city/highway

stock gas tank volume

BP/Mobil (87 octane); Considering that gas/fuel technology has progressed quite a bit (detergents and the like), I see no reason to warrant paying for higher octane unless I choose to advance my timing or bump up the compression since my car is "close" to stock.

I consider myself as a defensive aggressive driver. :D (On the streets, I drive pretty conservatively.) I drive a bit more in the city than I drive the expressway.
I stopped taking tabs on my mileage but, it's consistently 200+ at the 1/4 mark.

I got a 99 DX, and I used to use premium all the time.
I filled up once using regular and never turned back.

My car is mostly stock (i/e) but when I first used regular it seemed like the engine performed a little better! I know that sounds like a load but I'm telling you. I wouldn't have stuck with it if my performance went down at all.

IMHO 92 octane in a mostly stock 4cyl, naturally aspirated engine is a waste of money. Alot of people who swear by it have never used regular ever. ( I used to be one.:rolleyes: )

All you 92octane guys try a fillup with regular and I bet you won't feel a difference except maybe a positive one. (Considering a modestly tuned engine and name brand gas)

Back to topic: 26-32mpg (75% city miles)

my bad let rewrite what i just said, my cars has a hard time as well when it gets low and i have 2-3 gallons left in the tank, but when i fill it back up there no problem. Maybe honda has a week fuel pump that needs more pressure to the engine to start the car up. I need to find out cuz its never good on fuel injection to stall so many times.

funny u say that now cuz my car wont start. Car has a full tank of gas theres a green shade in the battery and it still has some charge cuz when i jumped it the lights, fogs, and radio play but the car wont turn over at all not even a little. I hear the fuel pump thats working find. I was thinking it could be the starter but it did not show any signs of going bad. My neighbor and I was thinking it might be the safty switch to the clutch. Any advise????anyone

I run 93 octane due to advanced timing, 94 or better sometimes when I can get it.
From driving back and forth to work 5 days a week, about 40 miles total, some highway, I usually get anywhere from 28 to 33 mpg. I drove out to my grandmother's a few times, which is about 220+ miles one way, and managed to make the trip there and back on the same tank of gas. Best gas mileage was 46.7 mpg.

I drive 140mi/day for 5 days out of the week, avaraging about 75mph. I normally get a hair over 40mpg, and usually drop about 8.2 gallons in the tank at the 300 mile marker- it gives me a hundred mile leeway. I run cheapie 87 octane from Flying J truck stop mostly.
Heh, one of the big things that will be a pain with an engine swap is my gas milage will get worse... i'm already at 2 tanks a week :/

The best I managed was 350 miles, driving between 70 and 100 mph on a continuous journey. On average I get around 260 - 270 miles urban driving, with journeys usually around 5 miles. Surprising really because I don't really drive economically, I try to reach 5500 rpm at least once a day.

Petrol in the UK is expensive £3.70 ($6.50) per gallon!
