Hello from Belgium.

Hello, I am a newbie. I come from Belgium.

It?s difficult for me to speak in English, but I will try to do my best...


My car is a 1994 Honda Civic VEi.

It?s a D15Z1 engine, like Civic Vx.


I have found this forum during some search on the web.

These vehicles are rare in my country. So It?s difficult for me to find some informations.


I have a little problem with the engine, I hope I can get some opinions.

Thank you.

Welcome aboard! You've come to the right place for help with your car. There are quite a lot of VX owners here that have the same motor as your VEi Civic.

I don't understand why you like this kind of car?
Fuel is cheap in your country.
In Belgium, a liter of fuel costing +- 2$.

Here are some pictures of my car.

Four years ago, stock with a lowered suspension.

With little modifications, this car is really fun to drive. But more economical than other old Civic. That's why I like my Civic.

hi nice to see some more belgian people here! wich province are you from?

with fuel prices so high here it's strange not more people are interested in gassaving. even a small improvement will quickly return some money.

you should add your car to the garage and keep a gasslog, converting things to miles and gallons is a little work, but if type something like "5l to us gallons" in google it will calculate everything. and it's nice to see you're improvements on the graph

happy gassaveing!

Gas prices here in Minnesota are hanging around $3 US per gallon. Most Americans think this is too much to pay for gasoline and that is why this website exists, lol. It's kind of ironic that the US has some of the cheapest prices for gasoline in the world and we have some of the worst gas mileage cars in the world as well. Someday the US will change its ways. I guess we take baby steps??

I personally love my VX because it saves me so much on gas over the years.

Welcome to GS! Great Pics. Your car is spotless (along with your garage!). There are certain cars that I like to call "GasSaver Rock Stars". The VX is one of them, so your car has a "GasSaver Pedigree".
