    What kind of gas milage do you get?

    I get about 225 on a full tank. WTF why is it so crappy. I drive slower than granny (the speed limit is just that, the limit not how fast you gota go.), I have clean oil, air filter, PCV, and fuel filter. Wht gives? All factory except K&N cleanable filter element, and a 2 1/4" exaust. I really have to get this fixed.

          Bosch or Denso O2 sensor sound cool, and if it isn't, then I guess I have a sensor with a lifetime warrenty. What else could it be?

            I only get close to 250 maybe alittle more. But that's not the way to measure your gas mileage. I still get anywhere from 28-29mpg city and about 30-31 highway.

              My dad gets 415 MILES, not km, out of a full tank, I dont know why, we have 5 integras that one is the slowest but gets the best MPH ( 33 mpg, and taking 12.6 gallons of regular) .

                  Our Integras only had one O2 sensor stock. Bosch isn't very good.

                  I usually get mid to high 20s with mostly city driving, and low to mid 30s with mostly highway.

                      I was getting 32-34 mpg. With my exhaust leak, probably a crack on my header, I am now getting 26.

                        12:1 compression B17a with a JDM YS1 = 330/10.5 gallons.

                          31 mpg

                          its the little things that count

                          fuel filter/iginition timing set/airfilter/o2 sensor/coolant temp sensor/thermostat/good cat/good wires/solid cap/rotor/regular oil changes/ good alignment!!/ decent tires/ smart driving


                          remember the gas these days sucks balls the quality of your gas can make a big difference

                            I get about 330-350 miles with roughly 10.5-11 gallons.

                              Best milage on my 93 has been 31mpg (about 400mi to the tank), but my 91 got 33mpg (about 430mi to the tank). If I am speedy all over the place and high rev, I'll still get 28-29mpg. The biggest dif I see so far is the valve job on the 91, otherwise they both have/had short ram intake, new ignition parts, filters, lube, gaskets... oh yeah, 91 had a lightweight crank pully too.

                              The 02 sensor in my 93 needs to be replaced, but surprisingly enough, if the idle was ever adjusted improperly (without disengaging senors) it will guzzle gas. When I stupidly did it, my efficiency went to 24mpg and below! As soon as I reset the idle system, it is now back to normal. May be something to check if other possibilities have been exhausted...

                              Other Notes: City and Hwy driving (with a/c on); 93 octane; Enmark, Racetrack, or Chevron Only.

                                Dad gets 400+ on a tank on the 1st white Teg--- b/c his car is "special"!!! It has a coal burner in the trunk to save gas like an old train!!
                                Most I got out of the blue teg was 31 MPG and My black teg #1 about 27MPG w/ turbo and no A/C. Black Teg #2 about 26-30 MPG depending on how I drive.

                                  SHELL, AMACO, OR BP. 87 octane here. What was being said about the idle adjustment?? I adjusted idle not to long ago, but I just messed with the cables.

                                      i can go about 320 miles on a full tank with lots of vtec action :p

                                      JDM b16a, S1 transmission

                                      and if you get bad milage i highy recommend replacing the 02's. it made my motor run like 87345987348957 times better.

                                        Well, I have yet to hit the 300 to the tank yet. I can never seem to fill higher than like 10.6 gal on the past 2 da's i've had. I run them past the red line on the gas meter too. Still can't seem to go over 10.6 gal. ??

                                          try this -
                                          fill up all the way. reset your little mileage counter on the cluster, run the car until it hits the 1/2 tank mark exactly. then fill up from there and run it to the 1/2 mark again. look at your miles. however much it takes to fill it up from the 1/2 mark X2 should give you a pretty accurate number of gallons as well as a more accurate number of miles traveled on one tank.

                                          did that make any sense? lol i confuse myself :p

                                            If you just messed with the cable, then what I was saying prob doesn't apply to you. Adjusting the cable just opens the throttle body plate more. Properly adjusting the idle is by turning the idler screw on the corner of the TB by the intake. You have to follow a procedure of warming the car up, then disengaging sensors (several methods), adjusting screw, turning off car, re-engaging sensors, starting car, resetting computer. If you are a dummy like me, you may have just turned the idler screw. Even though no one has ever replied to my question of what it physically does, it WILL decrease fuel economy on your car if all you do is turn the screw (counter clock-wise in my case).

                                            Again, this is probably not most people's problems, but if you've tried everything else, it is possible someone in the past improperly adjuted your idler screw and messed up you mpg, so turning it back and resetting the computer is the solution.

                                            Any questions about the idler screw probably shouldn't be addressed here, but if you you will find info on how to do it right.

                                                If you can't fill past 10.6 gals, seems like you just need to drive some more before filling up After the low fuel light comes on, I'll usually drive about 50 more miles before getting gas (figuring roughly 2 gallons in reserve and conservative 25 mpg to be safe). I usually end up putting about 12.5-13 gals when I finally fill.

                                                The easiest way to test mpg for those that don't know any other way, is to top off the tank, reset the trip-ometer, drive until you used a bunch of fuel (at least half a tank - the longer you wait, the more accurate the reading), top off the tank again. Take the milage on the trip-ometer and divide by gals added at pump. There you go
