i got a 92 metro, if your tinkering with them, be sure to check the front calibers they tend to draw water in the two bolts that hold them on and will corrode your metal sleeves so caliber will not slide. when you press on the brake they will hold pads against the rotor. i took mine apart, cleaned and filled rubber boots with 'never seize' to keep water out. i noticed the difference next time out with it.

92 CX w/vtech e - issues

Greetings - I have a CX with a VX engine, and it occasionally has problems starting. My mechanic blames it on the wiring harness. Advice on this anyone?

Hi, I've been a pretty avid hypermiler since I read about Wayne Gerdes a few months ago. I've been applying EOC, P&G and other tactics on my daily commute with my wife's Passat Wagon but was unsatisfied with the 30 mpgs I could finaggle out of it, so I bought a 94 Tercel automatic two weeks ago. So far I'm pretty happy with the results, and as soon as I have a weekend off of work I'm going to start messing with the guts and interior of it to maximize efficiency and minimize weight.

Hi;

I'm Kendall Weaver from Hendersonville, NC. At present I drive a 95 Honda Civic CX hatch with a tired motor in desperate need of a tune up and regularly achieve 40-42 mpg. At present the car has mid-level weight reduction (approximate vehicle weight is 1900 without people) and is lowered beyond what is realistically perceived as sensible. I'll be taking it though a MPG oriented build over the next few months and figured I would share this with everyone while trying to learn a thing or two myself.

I have a long history dealing with modified Honda's. I'm hoping to curb my performance oriented roots and use some of those lessons in the pursuit of efficiency.

newbie

Hello to all the group;
I am getting 41 mpg in my Accord EXL V6. Just installed a Cyclone fuel saver but it will take 2 tankfills for it to kick in. Hope it works.
I get 33.6 on my 08 Odyssey that is not broken in yet.
would appreciate any tips or advice.

MPG is the new HP
