Just got home... The scangauge reported horrible gas mileage, but then I checked the settings and it was set for a 3.0L engine and not a 1.5L engine, so who knows.
Yeah, the engine size is critical. My theory is that the SG doesn't actually know the amount of gas being injected. I think it derives the gas used based on the engine size and RPMs. That's what I think, anyway. My wifes 2003 Civic is a 1.5L versus my 1.9L, and it is easily 10 MPG greater than my Saturn without any effort. But where's the fun without any effort?
I think I need to set my gas tank correctly, though. That may be another input it uses to derive it's results.
PS - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! Sell more bumper stickers and pay it off ASAP!!!!!
nice...the sport package...
whats the official honda color name...?
if you think 50mpg is easily doable...i cant imagine what might be attainable with an i-DSI engine...
i am ecstatic for your purchase
what was the final price with the options if you dont mind....?
I think that's Storm Silver.
Looks like 50mpg might be a little more work than I thought, but I still think it's doable. My driving today was around 39MPG (for all day), but I seem to get better MPG in the city due to slower speeds and various driving techniques.
I'd love to get an iDSI engine, but I'm not going to cross my fingers any time soon.
After accessories, taxes, DMV fees,and hidden dealer fees, it was around $18k. I was financed at 6.2%, so the payments are going to be okay.
