    ^^^ the way u get that type of MPG numbers is by changing ur dash display or wherever it says ur gas mileage, etc. i took a roadtrip in my moms cobalt, and u can have it in "average mpg" which obviously tells u what ur average is the whole time uvebeen driving, or "current mpg" or something like that, which baically says how much gas ur using that second. i got the current mpg up to 52 in the cobalt, cuz i put it in neutral and went down a huuuuuuuge hill. that does not mean that i got 52mpg on that roadtrip.

    No such thing in a 93 civic plus the drive is all slightly up hill from LA. I was able to get those motors to run so efficient and thats why i'm getting them for the kids..

    I don't care if there were 3 or a 1000 witnesses... They were all stupid, ignorant, gullible or some combination thereof if they believed you. I'm not, and you didn't get 62.3 mpg at 90mph and probably not at all.

    So, I don't care that you don't care because your post is in a relatively public part of these forums, and I'm a member. Thus, I get to post a counterpoint to statements that I feel are bullshit. In your own words you didn't ask and you don't care if I believe, but regardless of your cares or questions I don't.

    Have a nice day,

    Chris

    Here's the problem with your numbers...they are off the wall.

    No Honda Civic, not even a hybrid, gets 62.3MPG. So there is no way that it can even achieve that kind of fuel economy at 55MPH, and it sure as hell isn't happening at 90MPH. Anything over about 80MPH requires close to wide open throttle in a Civic, and with their short gear ratios, you're around 4500RPM, which really sucks down the gas regardless of engine size. And to top it all of, there were 4 people in the car?? I've heard some bullshit before, but thats ridiculous.

    And not only that, but RSX-S's don't get 28MPG city. They get around 20-22MPG. My friend has an 07 Si, same engine, and thats all he gets in his, bone stock. The EPA rates the RSX-S at 23 city, there is no way you're getting 28MPG. Those numbers are optomistic on those cars, so if anything, you should be getting less than 23 anyway.
