wow, i only get like 320 about the same as my accord.

However, there is probably not a tank where VTEC doenst engage. I dont mean i redline it, i just shift a little past 5rpms once a blue moon.

I'd be happy to get 300, although I have never actually reached that number since I always fill up at around quarter tank... so like 220-250 miles and around 10-11 gallons (12+ on a VTEC-happy no-freeway tank haha).

As with all of the identical threads that have come before it, this comparison (miles to the tank) is pretty much useless, because everyone fills up at different points.

Daily driving, I get about 250 miles to the tank if I fill it up when the needle hits 'E'. But if I wait to fill up until it's actually empty (or as close as I can manage and still be able to drive it), it's 360 miles to the tank.

In other words, 24mpg around town, and 29-31mpg highway.

I get 24-30 mpg depending on how/where I drive. I've got 200 miles out of a tank, but still had some to spare. Calculating your MPG is a lot more accurate then how many miles you get to a tank

Yea it's all about MPG. And in other news, holy sh*t you get good mileage. I'm lucky to get 24-25 highway and 21-22 street.

I average 23-24 MPG with street driving... I generally shift below 4000, usually below 3500.

I've made it all the way from North Hollywood to Berkeley, CA on one tank...

granted I did sputter to a stop in a gas station once I passed the Berkeley city limit. I was trying for the goal.
