Arrow Hi everyone

I'm here because I did something I never thought I'd do: buy a FWD car! And an economy car at that! The weird thing is, I kinda enjoy it.

Now that I drive a 92 Civic VX, I'm gonna need some help getting that fickle engine running at it's best. So far I've only gotten 2737 MPG out of it, and that's a mix of putting around town and highway driving including a 560 mile trip from Seattle to Eugene and back (the return trip is where I got 27, which would have been fine in my old '87 Thunderbird 5.0L; that car once got 33 on a 113 mile highway trip).

I know some things about cars and like to do what I can myself. But honestly when it requires major wrenching, I usually have a shop do it. I've seen a few threads about the VX here, so brace yourself for all my questions 😛

Welcome to the forum. Good luck getting your car sorted. It is a popular one with its own subset of owners and when properly set it does great on mpg.

Is it a CARB or federal model? The CARB one has some limitations for emissions that prevent it from reaching its full potential.
