Just found this sight a couple of days ago and just registered. What a great site and very informative. The wife and I have a 98 Subaru forester S with 175,000 miles on it. I am looking for a nice stock civic vx after reading through this site. I will be be researching a way to boost the MPG in my Subaru also which only gets about 24 mpg hwy.
Get a DX of the same year as the VX (1992-1995) they are very underrated and get nearly as good gas mileage. Yessum, 50mpg to be achieved with no mods with a manual 1992-1995 Civic DX. Good luck in your search.
