Revving high doesn’t necessarily translate to worse fuel economy, considering that Civic has still got a considerably smaller engine. When I had a Civic (EX, MY2000, AT), it got me 31-32 mpg in mixed driving. At the time it was rated 28-35. Under same conditions, 1998 Accord (EX, MY1998, AT) got me 25-26 mpg.

Civics the Si actually got better mileage than the EX in every day driving.
I never got better than 30mpg in the Civic in every day driving. Seemed to me the engine was always revving pretty high in all situations, although it could have been the way I drove it.
the si revs freely to 8000rpms....
going by your logic, it should get considerably worse than an ex civic.

Hahaha, true enough!
I'm all legs.
In some other Accord forums, people are upset that they can't fit in an Accord with a sunroof. I have no problem with it because my torso is relatively short.

Taken from a Honda-UK site.
Accord Diesel US-MPG numbers with a manual transmission.
City - 33 US MPG
Hwy - 52 US MPG
Sounds good to me.

Think you musta meant 42 US highway?

The mileage may not be accurate at all considering the are talking about UK cars since the US versions do not exist.
However, 52 could be right considering 60+ was bandied about earlier. People will not be impressed by 42 MPG highway after looking at a big price premium.

I think 52 was right. I just went to Honda UK and the combined mpg is 52 brit. So 52 x .8 apprx =42 US combined. But....their accord is smaller w/ a 2.2 diesel. Think our diesel will be 2.4 + the US Accord is larger. I think the diesel premium may be about $1500. I certainly plan to buy one. I'll just get it in the CRV. Don't want 194" in my garage.

No use at guessing what pricing might be without facts.
In addition, the pricing difference will be much bigger than MSRP shows if you can buy a 2009 LX gas 4 cylinder for $500 over invoice and have to pay around full sticker for a 2009 diesel that year if they are built in low numbers.

I'll probably try to wait 'em out till I can get a reasonable deal.
