and your 500 miles on a single tank of gas record!!! just got my spring tune up, and cleaned out the fuel system with a chevron techron cleaner. i got 435 miles and i was driving like a moron. tons of city driving and going 80/85 on the hwy. the lightweight pulleys and volks really really help with gas milage (but more importantly performance!!) i plan on making a world record for the tsx. already got a plan set in place.

for other folks in this thread, what is the farthest youve gone on a single tank? what is your avg mpg? right now im at 25.5mpg

I've done 750kms all hwy with stock everything (Tdot to MTL). But I guess if I were to do a tune up and put lighter wheels on, then it should give me better numbers.

~6.2L per 100kms

+1^ good timing for a fuel economy thread though with all the rising gas prices.

maybe im just crazy or somethign but i think the gas needle tends to fall faster when youre going from 1/2 tank to E then F to 1/2...anyone else notice this or am i nuts? haah

twice a year, no more than that. i use it at the start of spring to prep for peak driving season and then right before winter. its good stuff. chevron is such a trusted name.

Ahahaha. Where will you be traveling to get 500 miles? I don't know if you can really get it with mixed driving. I got 500 miles on all freeway. If you see yourself dropping in MPG, try going slow. And I mean real slow. I remember going 60 mph for about 3-4 hours cause Oregon cops are strict.

BTW doing 435 with city driving is impressive. I think you can definitely break 500

i think 6 months is a good time period between using it. ive heard the only bad thing about these fuel system cleaners is that they are hard on the catalytic converters and spark plugs, but thats only if youre using a cleaner every single time you gas up! you should notice some better mpg gains for sure but i wouldnt expect miracles. if i were you, i would make sure all the internal workings of your car are good (spark plugs, valves are properly adjusted if youre past 100k miles, tires are inflated good, etc)

and for any confusion about what i use, heres a pic of the bottle. it consistently is rated very highly on other auto forums and acura zine
