I'm interested in knowing how MetroMPG does with his Civic VX. Every day that goes by now I sort of regret getting this sedan and wish I would have just waited for a civic VX. Even though when I'm done it will essentially be a Civic VX Sedan, having a VX from the beginning would have been nice.

no offense taken! don't worry about it.

my average is going down: i had to do a 210 km/130mi hwy round trip today -4C/25F, in gusty conditions, and according to the scangauge i only got 45 mpg(us) at 55 mph avg speed. in the summer i'd be seeing low to mid 50's mpg(us). winter bites! plus i had a few hundred miles of mostly city driving to add in from the previous tank - it'll be much worse than 45mpg US. i'll update my new average later on.

matt: just to clarify, i don't have a civic vx. i would have bought one instead of the firefly, but they're pretty few and far between. partly because any car older than 8-10 years around here is starting to turn to swiss cheese from the salty winter roads. ontario is definitely "rust belt" territory. so it's hard to find a 92-95 vx in decent condition anymore.

Gotcha. Don't know why I thought you had one...

I've decided that if my car ever gets smashed I'm going to get a Civic VX. I can find one in Nevada, Arizona, or California without rust for fairly cheap.

Lesson learned. Before I buy a car I need to research all of the options next time :P

BTW, how much does your metro weigh?

it's 1830 lbs.

it's 1830 lbs.

as far as metros go, the final generation (i.e. mine) is kind of porky compared to the earlier cars.

the previous generation's uber-efficient xfi model was just 1621 lbs and was rated at 53/58 US mpg city/hwy. that's another car to look for if you can find a rust-free one. there are still plenty of those kicking around the US (for some reason that model was never sold in canada).
