Hey, I'm new...

to the forums and to Hondas

I found this site while looking up stuff about saving gas last week.
I just got my '97 Honda Accord EX last friday (10/20/06) moving up from a '91 chevy lumina.

I love my accord, I needed something that got really good gas milage and would last a long time, so I knew honda was for me. I drive 100 miles a day to work so I've already drained a whole tank and I'm exited to report 30MPG (with expectatios of getting higher through the help of GasSavers.org)

I guess thats all.

thanks for reading.

Bienvenidos!

Glad to see you here. Your starting MPG is great and your garage already has lots of nifty plans afoot!

I used to commute between Alabama (Muscle Shoals) and Nashville when doing TVA work, and another friend travels from Nashville to Widdow's Creek daily.

Welcome!

umm... I can't remember (the garbage ran this morning) but I'm pretty sure it was the offbrand O'Rieley part.

SVOboy, my commute is about 51 miles one way. 95% highway (guessing)
some of it is pretty flat, and some hills. on my way home I have about 2 miles of steep mountain to climb (I try to go easy on that part) I really want a scangauge so I can see what my MPG drops too. but on my way too work I get to go down it, so maybe that helps alittle? hehe
