Howdy from Louisville, Kentucky.
 
I've got a '95 Civic VX that I love, 214,000 mi. and runs great. Originally I planned on putting in an H22, but I've become smitten with the little car in its original shape. Anyone else have a VX?

Yay! Another VX! I just snagged a 92 with 131k miles on ebay and will be picking it up on Monday.

Nice. I'd love to have another one at some point. Mine needs a little body work, but it runs great. I just did its 3rd t/belt, water pump, etc. I'm getting ready to buy some camber/toe adjusters for the rear so I can get my alignment right. I got ahold of some free 13" dunlops, so I put those on too. What year is yours? Had any trouble?

krousdb 06-29-2006 10:36 AM

It's a 92 and i havent even seen it yet. I will let you know on Monday.

Very nice! Yeah, definately don't swap the engine out of there. They are becoming harder and harder to find with the orignal engine.

Ah. I hope it serves you well - I love mine! I was never into imports, but after 3 1/2 in a Honda dealership I had no choice but to love them. I've seen tons of them with 200k+ miles running with no trouble at all. A friend of mine has an '89 Accord LXi with well over 550k.

The money question: what kinda mileage have you been getting? :D

95metro 06-29-2006 11:04 AM

Is it just me or is there a trend here between Honda and fuel efficient vehicles? Nah, it's gotta just be me...

Anyway, welcome!

Well, like you, mark, I decided on the crx by going down the epa top vehicle list, :p

I haven't done very accurate experimenting, but the best I've done is 52.5 mpg on the interstate. The worst on the interstate was about 28mpg, but that was going a full tank at 90mph. I got the 52mpg going about 65. At the time, I had wider tires than I have now, they were underinflated, I had a lot of extra weight in the car and I had the wrong thermostat. Also it was cooler outside than it is now. I think if I did the same experiment again I could see 55mpg, maybe more. I recently drove to KC and back , and at 75mph with the windows up (murder without A/C!) it did about 47mpg. As far as a lifetime average I have no idea - I'm the third owner, and my driving habbits change quite a bit. I love working on the car, and after several synthetic oil changes the valvetrain looks better than it did when I got the car three years ago.
