Look at my gas log for details...

67pmg over two tanks (2nd tank filled to tippy top, so this should be a fair estimate)

feather foot (egg between pedal and floor)
no WOT
higher RPM when necessary to avoid WOT
higher RPM going up hills to avoid WOT
steady throttle whenever possible
feel for lean burn
slow acceleration

Unless I've made some error in my calculations or these two tanks were somehow a fluke (they also had 30 miles of high speed driving: refer to my gas log) than 70mpg doesn't seem like an impossibility.

stock 1993 civic vx with more ground clearance from larger tires and missing front spoiler/lip thing for aero. Right size tires and replacing front lip thingy could improve things slightly.

tires 55-60PSI (depending on temperature)

three stripes the charm!

Car mods are overrated. Just gotta adjust that nut behind the wheel for best mpg.

Forget about World Peace...Visualize using your turn signal.

dang. pretty good numbers. I'll bet a small drop in ride height and a replaced front lip/dam will get you that extra 3mpg. Congrats!

I am getting ready to buy a VX.
Is there a good link for all the VX gas saving mods I should do?
I am still not quite sure what the Lean burn thing is.
