Hi from the new guy...
 
Hi everyone. I got this like from SiMateoAko over on honda-tech. My current gas saver it a 1988 Honda CRX DX. I live in the mountains so it is not easy to keep the MPG up going up every day. I currently can get about 40mpg but would like to do a bit better. I drive about 100 miles round trip each day for work so even a little bit will help.

Mountains, you're so lucky!

*waits for dan to chime in with links*

Chiming in now....

Jack, tell me about your drive. From where to where via what routes and what are the elevation changes?

While I am not in the mountains, I have some pretty steep hills to negotiate in Pittsburgh. I have found that they can be an advantage in some cases.

Hi Fellow Honda drivers.

I live in Bear Creek Pa and work in Hazleton. Most of my travel is intersate (RT 81) on the way home. To work looks more like this (due to no south ramp onto 81 from 115:

On that map I actually go west and take the first road near the word Bear Creek to 80 then 80 west to 81 .

Not the best looking but it works.

Used to drive faster but I have myself weened back to 70. I normally leave my house at 8 am but come home anywhere from 2 to 7 depending on the day.

I also just took my tire pressures up from 35 to 50 today when I filled up just to see. Today was 281 miles and filled to click with 7.04 gallons.
