97 Civic

I get around 470 km/40L tank on a B16 in the city, but I haven't really had a chance to take the car out on the highway yet. How's the mileage going long distance, since it's running at a high rev?

if you drive on the highway with a consistent speed of probably 140, you'll get atleast 550 to the tank upwards to 700 lol.

I think I achieved around 6xx kms / 42 L in my 01 integra going to Calgary. Basic mods, i/h/e.

i have a month new 2009 civic sport and we barely, just barley get 380-400km for a full tank, which is about 50L tank. is this okay for a new car? it's automatic transmission, and we drove it during cold cold weathers which might take more fuel for engine to warm up, and with all the heating it's doing. any input? also, pretty much 95% city driving and i can only think of knight street bridge guzzling the gas away as that freeway seems to eat gas. is this normal? thanks.

400km is pretty bad for an r18 automatic. you should easily be getting 500km+ but your car is still new..

That's shoddy mileage for a brand new car.. I'm not sure what your driving style is like, but unless you stomp on your gas pedal at every light I don't think that it's normal.

Also, heating your car in Vancouver isn't actually going to use that much fuel. I just went through a whole winter of an average -25 degrees (-32 with windchill) and still got 430 km, down from a summer avg of 470.

My tank is supposed to be 45l but I have yet to put more then 35l in it to fill it, makes me think somethings in my tank. I get about 9.75l/100km on my b20v, got about 6.5l/100km when I had my stock d16z6 with bad compression.

well the mpg ratings says i should be getting around 450km city and 500+ on highway. different people drive the car but there are a lot of stops and each time the lights turn green, i would rev up to 2k-3k rpm (usually the mid range) but i can't say the same for the rest of my family. i still think that's really slow acceleration but maybe the car needs to break in for it to get better mileage?

350 kms per 25 L tank?

Is that a typo or are you out of your minds? That's great mileage!

Your tank is only 25L? are you sure lol... and 350km to 25L is damn good.

K20Z2 engine with minimum engine mod (just a cat-back), usually got 9.5-10 kms/L mostly city driving. You know kingsway...

Got 30 mpg when driving down to seattle and did mostly (90%) highway with 89 octane. I usually just fill 87 octane. I don't know if it makes any different.
