Default Mileage

Hey All-

I have a 95 CivicDX Coupe 5 speed and i'm trying to bump my MPG. 40 is nice but i think i can do better. The only thing i've done so far is to trade the stock steelies for VX rims (9lbs each). Any suggestions?

CAI, header, exhaust, high flow cat will all give you extra MPG's if you dotn get a lead foot from the extra power

Do you have any specific recomendations for the exhaust? Also could you explain CAI? I'm new at this.

Hate to argue, but most probably you do not get any extra mileage out of those mods All of them work to increase the air flow through engine, which does not traslate into engine efficiency usually, at least not at a noticable rate.

Your best bet would be your driving habbits.
