Ill take it! Heck, the aluminum content alone is nearly worth $25.

Hill climbing a gradual slope I am in 5th at 1200, holding 32 mph steady,instantaneous FE is 45 . Moderate hill climbing at 4th 1500, holding 32 mph steady, instantaneous is 30. Severe hill climbing in 4th 1500 bleed down to 1000 then 3rd, hold 30mph, instantaneous is 20ish. I am in 5th 90-95% of the time when I drive. At idle in 5th gear, I can hold 20 MPH on a flat road, instantaneous about 100 MPG.

At 2200 lbs, it doesn't take much torque to accelerate or to hold speed. The only time I go over 2000 is when I have to go over 50 mPH. When I get the CX tranny installed, I will never have to go over 2000.

damn i forgot your car is lighter than mine by 200 lbs, what's your engine specs? and what kind of wheels do you have put on right now? here are mine:

Weights: curb weight (lbs) 2,449
p185/70R14 87S
115 HP SAE @ 6,100 rpm; 110 ft lb , 149 Nm @ 4,500 rpm

this is the engine with no vtec. I just did a 3km run and got 55.6 mpg, then I took a 5 min break and did the same run again and achieved 63.5 mpg! for a total of 6 km, which has 2 right turns and three stop signs that i have to turn right on as well. I wonder how many times i can repeat the segment until my mpg maxes out?

lol time to find out

edit: boo 3rd run resulted in 54mpg but then again I took a 10 minute break for that one and when I got back coolant temperature dropped from 90 C (normal operation) to 70C.... but now at least I know what my car is capable of!

I have 102 HP, 98 ft lb

I have 102 HP, 98 ft lb torque. No vtec here either. The wheels are 185/65/15 which are way bigger than the stock 175/75/13. That may be costing me a few mpg. Im working on getting smaller tires/wheels.

I'm not helping either, but trying. VX rims in the hizzouse (in my basement, to be exact).

Wish I could do the 13", but the tire options are very limited. Actually, with the HX rims at 12 lb, and the tires that I found at 13 lbs, the whole works is 25 lbs per wheel. Not many 13" tire and rim combos could beat that.

I'll have to weigh mine, but

I'll have to weigh mine, but also. I could weigh more than you and still have less inertia, especially since the tire weight is mostly at the outside. Think about it...
