Honda Civic Gas Mileage Project

Follow the Project: We're currently looking for a manual-equipped 1998 or newer Civic HX for our first MPG project car. Why 1998? Fifteen years is a good spread. On-board Diagnostic (or OBD) ports can be found in all cars that are 1996 or newer. We need OBD in order to fit the Civic with advanced instrumentation. Lets get down to it ... What's this Civic Gas Mileage Project all about? In short, we want to see if it's possible to push a Civic HX into the 50 mile per gallon highway range with some straightforward tweaks. That means no snake oil, fart can mufflers, or dangerous highway driving techniques, like drafting. With luck, we'll get this project done over the summer. But we'll need your help. Our goal is to produce a cool little documentary series covering the process of improving the Civic's real world fuel economy, along with its handling and in-cabin amenities. This project will have some unique twists, no doubt about it ... and we're likely to encounter the inevitable bumps in the road. While we're planning a show around it, this won't be a show car ... it'll be a driver, through and through. So stick with us, and stay tuned. We'll be sharing more details in the coming weeks... MPGomatic produces car review videos with a unique focus on gas mileage, in-cabin technology, and driveability. Yep, we're the folks that shoot those 0-60 MPH tests. -- Music courtesy of Kevin MacLeod: --- More MPGomatic ...
