Getting a scanguage will help more than anything. But you could DWL, drive 55, avoid the highway.

the only driving technique for flat land, highway driving is learning to go slower, dont use your brakes ever and do not race anybody.

i already know all that information, please tell me something I don't know.

Going slower is an automatic DUH.

Now isn't it true that in a manual honda if you're in gear and you let go off the gas and the rpm is more than 1100 rpm that it shuts down fuel injection?

Tell me something new, DUH.

But seriously, why ask if you know all the answers?

I don't know a lot about manuals. Manuals are a different story. Please answer my fuel injection question.

Try it out and see. My car is very picky about that, luckily I have the superMID.

Don't ask questions you don't want answered. Also, don't be rude when people answer your questions.

Nevermind. I'll find out on my own like I always do. I don't need a device to tell me how my mpg is.
