I have an '06 TSX and I want to make my baby as gas Efficient as possible and seriously, not forclose at the pumps! I find my km/L ratio is way too low!! what are you miles/galon or km/L ratios??
Any specific reason as to why you are using 87 octane and not a higher grade? It sounds like you would be in the low 30s if you did.35% city 65% hwy I'm seeing about 29MPG these days.
6-speed manual and 87 PON (pump octane number).
5w-30 synthetic oil
My charted MPG is here
1. Underdrive lightweight pulley set
2. Overinflated tires (45 psi front, 42 psi rear)
I normally shift at 2,200 rpm when accelerating and will cruise as low as 1,200 rpm. I also do a lot of coasting and looking ahead at the lights and traffic. Cold starts and short trips really kills the milage. I'll be adding a lower air intake block soon to improve warmup times and improve aerodynamics.
What I really want to do is add a taller 6th gear, or make all gears taller. 3000 rpm at 70mph is excessive.
I ran 91 PON for the first 2 months I had the car just because it was recommended in the manual. However, after looking into the topic on some forums and reading in the manual that it is ok to run 87, I decided to give it a try myself. The performance seemed to be terrible on my first tank of 87, but by the middle of the second tank it seemed to be just fine and I didn't notice a drop in fuel economy.Any specific reason as to why you are using 87 octane and not a higher grade?
