Default Normal MPG for a 99-00 Si and Ex also

I want to know also on the EX what is your MPG. I know it's a totally different engine compare to the Si.

Anybody also with a B16 swap post your results!!!!


Si only uses Premium fuel as everybody knows
I need some opinions from other Si (99-00) Owners on MPG. on a full tank. For the 1st time i kept track on mine and I want to know if it sounds right???? I only drove on the highway for 125 Miles and rest on city surface, 145 miles on city. Yes I know on the city I will get less mileage. Total mileage 270 miles on a full tank an average of 24.5 miles per Gallon. Does this sound right for an Si. Keep on mind it was more on City surface than Highway

What MPG would an Si get on Highway surface ( keeping city at a minimum)

Thanks you guys!!!!!!

fuel enconomy . gov shows a 99 si getting 22 city 29 highway, edit thats showing the 2008 estimates the old estimates are 26 city 31 highway. the epa changed the old estimates to the new ones cause the old ones weren't real world no a/c on 1 person in the car and driving like a granny, the new ones are real world

i just checked on my 1999 civic ex yesterday and I got about 22mpg, I mostly drive in a city setting and just learned how to drive a stick so that might be why its kinda low, but im not sure.

I drive a 00 ex and I dont know the MPG but I usually drive about 240-270 miles before fueling up and there's at least a gallon left, but the needle fluctuates too much when it gets that low so when I accelerate it looks like I'm on E, but when I'm cruising it goes up above E.

I drive probably 1/3 city, 2/3 highway, that's for work.

What on earth
I own a 2000 civic EX no swap
It's rated for 35 originally
that site fuel economy.gov said 32
JUST the other day i hit 41 mpg
Right now I'm at 210 miles and the needle is exactly on a half tank
I drive backroads mostly, like 90% of my driving, and definitely push the gas once in a while
what gas are you guys using?
