2006 Honda civic LX Auto very economical.

My mom bought a 06 civic lx not too long ago. I made a thread about it. Anyway she has been constantly getting high 20's. So I plugged up the SG2 to her car, calibrated it to her engine and we went for a drive.

On the streets she got 41.7mpg
On the freeway 64mph@65MPG

As long as the car is going 37mph or higher it's very efficient. So we used moderate pedal pressure to get to 37mph and then cruised at about 39-40mph. Coasting before lights was used.

I managed to pull of a 40.5mpg on the street.

This is not the hybrid civic, just a regular LX

the r18 never fails to impress, with the right hands 80 mpg should be possible on ideal conditions.

If your reading this, then good for you, your saving some gas because your here.

The R18 is a good engine with relatively tall gearing in the 5th, I could se getting 50 in it daily for my old commute.
