Forgiven.

No, we never had the HX. We also never had the XFi. I think both were likely marketing decisions more than anything else.

But we did have the Insight, so I doubt it's lean-burn related...

Edit: unless the Insight does something special, lean burn wise, that the HX couldn't.

The Insight might just get good enough mileage to offset the lean burn, Iono.

The CVT Insight does NOT have lean burn. Perhaps only CVT Insights are sold in Canada?

Yakno, that's what I thought, but Phil told me something different. I can't trust these canadians.

Didn't know that about the CVT & lean burn. Learn something new every day.

Both Insight transmissions were sold here though.

have now is about 500RPM higher. I'd really like to swap that
5th gear for the taller one...but where can I get one of
those?
Could be worse I have a 1986 HF with the High Altitude Trans and I have 3000RPM at 70MPH. One gen 1 CRX's (84-87) there were three final gear options
2.95:1 ratio in the 49 state cars;
3.55:1 ratio in the California cars; and
4.06:1 ratio in the hi-altitude cars.
Like it has been said before the 5th gear is not what changes it is the final gear.
What year CRX do you have?
