You've got that right. I can't convince my wife to have the dealer install an engine block heater on the TSX. "No MODS!" Maybe when it gets down in the teens a warm engine will be a good selling point

As the engine is breaking-in, we are seeing better FE numbers -- steadily increasing (right now it's at 33, it's highest) with about 4000 miles. The break-in oil gets changed at 5k, so after that we may see an even bigger increase (fingers crossed).

After the break-in oil are you going to change to synthetics?

My epa combined is 26mpg. I beat that when I was driving 2 miles to work, and it was uphill!
