i just filled my tank up, still had quarter tank or little more and 300 miles on the odometer. I just took out the spare tire and some crap i had in the trunk, lets see if i do a little better.

Has anyone put the AEM cold air intake in there car? I see alotta ppl have put them in, I was curious if you need to do anything else to make sure you get the right mixture of air and fuel, or if the o2 sensor in the computer just compensates automatically.
I was looking at the short ram intake too, but too me that doesnt look as efficient since its sucking in air right next to the engine, im sure its much better to be sucking in cold air from down below.

I'm around the 320 mark when I fill up and it's usually around 11-12 gallons. So generally 27mpg.
Do wish the tank held a couple more gallons though. We easily put 300+ miles on in five days.

The furthest I've dared gone was about 450 miles. Again, that was when I was making a long-distance drive, somewhat drafting off a friend in his 'vette, and trying to make the long drive as affordable as possible for mysrlf. Normally, however, I am getting to around 350 like the others...

cmon lets get this thread rollin! whos got the 18inch rims? how they run? what tires on em? how much is it for the window tint? ive decided, definitely dont want cold air intake, maybe shortram.. but really, the stock intake goes to the best area to suck up air. But it could be shorter! Im thinking the best thing would be to go from the air box, just right around the battery to the fender above the wheel where the stock pipe goes. rather than going down to the floor then back up. What you guys think? take a look

if your getting that many miles per tank of gas then I want your si.The most I have ever got was 260 miles on a tank of gas with 2 bars left over on the gas gage,and I wasn't even beating on the car or reving past 5,000 rpms,shift points at 3-4 rpm,and it was all highway miles,with the cruse control on at 60 mph.

I got the short ram injen intake and the only thing it did was make the car sound louder,but works good with a combination of upgrades.the most noticeable power gains I got was when I installed an engine torch damper got it from pro civic. I couldn't beleive it.Puts the power to the weels and it was pretty easy to install.It's also adjustable I have it on the stiffest setting it even made the car sound completely different,also I have a high flow catilyc converter,installed it myself,must get the 02 sencer elliminator or you will get a check engine light,happend to me.The sencor elliminator is sold sepperatly,but it did get rid of the check engine light.had to take the cat half way off to get it on there.

Yes, but what mileage did you get? Just saying "so and so bars left on the gauge" doesn't give any indication of mileage.
You'd need to divide the number of gallons pumped into the miles driven.
In my experience with my dad's 07 Civic EX, the low-fuel light didn't come on until about 1 bar left, and after that, it wasn't close to empty yet.
Revving to 4,000 RPM isn't exactly "driving easy" although cruising at 60 MPH is. The question is, if it was all highway miles, where was it your shift points were "under 5,000 rpm?" Just merging, or was some other driving involved?
