not much. Think about it.. you're putting a stock engine into your car. Honda makes some pretty fuel-efficient cars, so pretty much any engine you get will still get you decent fuel economy.

well, pick the engine you want to swap at and look at the gas mileage the car the engine came out of got. That's pretty much the mileage you're going to get now (provided you drive slowish and don't floor the accelerator much)
