How does 530 mi per tank for a VX sound?

Just curious how this stacks up. Also, anybody with an VX owners manual want to fill me in to the size of the gas tank? Gonna start topping off like a champ. Thanks fellows

Tank should be around 12 gallons, not that that means anything much.

530 doesn't sound horrible, not amazing, but good, depending on how much gas you used,

second that. I can find it in the manual if anyone wants solid proof. But I've never put more than 9 3/4 gallons in my VX.

The VX tank is 45 liters or 11.9 gallons

I have a 92 VX and it has an 11.9 US gallon gas tank or 45 liters.

This is often mistaken for 10 Imperial (UK) gallons.

That sounds like what my Civic has...I can usually stuff 11.X gallons in after running it low.

hmm, that's strange, I swear I read one of my manuals stating that the CX/VX only had a 10.9 gal tank (part of their weight savings)

I'll check those sources some more because if that is the case, then I'm filling up waay too early in my VX.

Edit: Ok, so after checking the Honda Parts Catalog... It shows two completely different part numbers for the fuel tanks. It shows one that is specifically meant for the CX/VX and one for the rest of the civic models. And this is just a comparison between the hatch models. There is a third design for the 2/4 door versions as well.

Unfortunately, it doesn't show capacity on the unit.

I'm so cornfused I should just bring a spare gallon of fuel with me in my car and see just how far down I can run it as I've never put more than 9.75 gallons of gas in my VX. That was when the gas needle was below the red mark too!

According to my gaslog, it looks like the most I've ever gotten in my Civic is 12.206 gallons (US).
