New User, old car

I have a 1994 Honda Accord EX Coupe with a 5 speed manual. It just had a tune up, EGR ports cleaned. So its running like NEW. I am doing average 25 mpg or so. and I want to do better. My G/Fs 2002 Monte Carlo SS (3.8 L motor) is beating me with 26 mpg average. Its no doubt the driver. I tend to be a lead foot. I am coming here to change my ways!

Congrats and welcome! In no time flat your accord will be beating the pants off of your GF. Be sure to check out the Busted/confirmed Mods thread and driving technique and you'll be on your way. You should make a gas log and garage online here as well to share with us all.

Welcome. Be suspicious of the Monte Carlo mileage if it comes from the onboard display . I like the 3.8 motor and currently own three of them but the mileage computer in my 2001 Impala is programmed to ready about 14% better than reality.

Welcome. Too bad the car's too old for a ScanGauge. That's usually one of my first recommendations. You could get a SuperMID if you've got some mechanical skill...

What kind of commute do you face? Speed? Traffic? Terrain?
