Ever since I bought the Civic I’ve always thought it needed a tune up… it just never seemed to run right.
I got one CEL for the engine for a Cyl 1 misfire, but it went away after only showing once.
Through the year and a half I’v ehad the car I’d average between 23 and 28 mpg filling up every week. This is mainly due to my harsh slamming of gearing and seeing quite a big of my 8000 rpm redline.
Well, yesterday I beat the hell out of it, today I beat the hell out of it. Then I filled up after 175 miles and put in 5.something gallons in it… effectively popping me JUST over 30 mpg. I couldn’t believe it, I’ve NEVER gotten that kind of mileage. Lately I’d been seeing 25, 28, and even 29.
I’m confused, because right now I’m 4 grand over my 60k mile marker, which means I’m in need of a tune up… yet 30 mpg. God I love it.
