That's an estimate. but I notice when im cracking vtec a lot when driving my gas gauge gets significantly lower. way more than regular driving.
jon_akers

IDK why they even put gas gauge in our cars....drive it till it dies and push the little thing to the gas station.

my gauge was way off most of the time.
jmanwantsboost

Mine acts up too
EF4lyf3

Dang, and that's not a good idea. Im sure you know you can seize the fuel pump doing that. I never have but im pretty sure its been done before lol. when I turn her to full race then I will just have a tach and oil and water temp/pressure gauge. Fuel pressure gauge as well but not a fill meter.
jmanwantsboost

When I say it acts up I mean it sometimes doesn't go all the way to full. Id never run my car dry. Id worry about burning up my pump.

45MPG!!!! Shocked  Shocked  thats crazy! Shocked
jmanwantsboost

Yea I went 165.5 miles in 3.621 gallons of gas. 45.7 mpg. And it wasn't straight highway. Didn't go over 55 and a little stop and go.
89CivicSi

on 4.6 gallons I can go bout 135miles before I get the sign I need gas(goin around a corner an car sputterin the words fill me up) lol an that no highway either or straight roads, Jon can vouch for that here lol its all 35mph and 45mph with a lot of stop an go, plus some spirited driving cuz the other cars taunt you here haha
jmanwantsboost

That's about 29. Not bad for mobbing about town. Mine is so Hong because of the 4ever synthetic oil, full tune up and lightweight 13 inch rims. I've been doing all I can to increase my cars efficiency.
89CivicSi

ya lol I have 15" steelies, bout 145lbs in rear end of extra weight, so I could probably get better mpg if I lose the extra weight in back end.
jmanwantsboost

Oh yea. That might do it. What do you have in the trunk lol?
89CivicSi

dual ported box with 2 12"s, 2 amps,a cap, an a bunch of tools. box with subs is around 80lbs I think Wink its 1in msd or whatever board with reinforcement in it
EF4lyf3

yea thats alot of weight back there but theres nothing like hearing the bumping louder than the car from a block away Smile
89CivicSi

lol the Mexican way of sayin "honey im home, and better have a beer ready" haha Twisted Evil
EF4lyf3

hahahahaha i think thats the hispanic way period.
89CivicSi

yes sir car  bitches here me rollin they be poppin that bottle
jmanwantsboost

I was wired for boom but I yanked it out. It was installed so fuckin ghetto and looked like garbage. The head unit to amp plug in wire was melted and scorched looking. My trunk looks hella clean now and when I'm ready for a system I'll get a pro to do it. I feel spoiled now. Getting 34 mpg makes me sad face Sad lol.
89CivicSi

lol ya but still go tho, and I just found out im runnin with a bad IAT sensor haha  Rolling Eyes
jmanwantsboost

My car does this thing where the throttle sticks a bit and pulling up on the gas pedal brings the RPMs down. Is that what's wrong?
89CivicSi

no rough idle, lil hesitation when goin to rip it, when I first installed the motor it was fine. I cant remember if I used the b2 IAT sensor or the a6, so im gonna switch it tomorrow an see if that changes it. cuz the code only shows on ecu when car is runnin.
jmanwantsboost

I've never idled funny. Just high sometimes. It's just a sticky throttle. Do you think the sensors are that different?
89CivicSi

nah they are the same for civic,accord,integra,prelude,legends,nsx,tl,vigor, and a car called sterling. ya I did some research lol, but years are limited on the cars, but same IAT covers 500 cars damn near lol so im thinkin its just bad
jmanwantsboost

Wow that's crazy. Pretty cool too. Exactly why I bought a Honda
89CivicSi

haha Ikr, tons of universal parts
jmanwantsboost

The hybrid suspension possibilities really lured me in. With so many options from motors and suspension I find it hard to believe Hondas can be unoriginal
89CivicSi

to me no 2 are the same, because there will always be that one thing that changes it
