    While the monthly cost of my usual 50-60 gallons of 87 continues to generate pain at the pump, I think (at least) the winter fuel blend is gone.

    My last tank gave just under 32 MPG (65% Highway) for my Gen7 6M coupe.

    Anyone know for sure when the summer blend gasolina hits NoCal?

    With my '11 FG2's stated HWY MPG of 29, I can honestly say that since I got 30.2 for mixed driving when I filled up last night, that the new Si will have to get significantly better than 31 MPG consistently to be worth an upgrade just due to efficiency.

    How are you guys calculating your MPGs? At the pump (miles divided by gallons filled) or going off the trip computer?

    I don't have a computer that provides that. I just look at the trip and divide by the gallons I pumped.

    Honda GB (Euro) is currently racing a 2.0L Turbo in their BTCC racing series Civic, so IMO they are looking at that technology seriously for production.
    Also, Honda V6 turbo's demolished the Renault's and Porches during the mid-80's F1 era racing. They have plenty air-pump technology!!

    I'm going to this fill up. I have posted earlier, this thread, figures off numerous computer read-outs (multiple cars). I wanted to fill it up myself first, than fill it again, myself, to get as good a reading as possible. I'll post as soon as gas prices fall a little more and I do the fill.

    Okay...I filled it up today. Note, I still had more than 1/2 a tank as I purchased only 5.406 gallons. The computer was showing overall mileage of 33.2. Figuring manually I got 34.42. This was based on 90 to 95% city driving. I'm happy with the mileage and computer read out vs. manual calculation. Econ button was "on" about 1/2 of the 185 miles driven.

    I consistently get about 330 miles to the tank before the light pops up and if I push it, like I always do, I get about 360-370 miles to the tank about 10 miles after there's no bars left.

    If I'm taking a trip and it's 100% hwy, I get about 480-520 miles to the tank.

    That's similar to how much I get. I have a 2004 civic EX with almost 200k on it and I mostly do highway driving and if I'm pushing it real hard, say about 83 mph set on the cruise I can get about 370 miles to the tank before the fuel light which nets me about 33-36 mpg and I can easily get over 400 miles before I stop to fill up. If I take it easy and set the cruise to about 70 mph then I can get 400-430 before the fuel light which nets me about 38 mpg and I could push it to 450 miles before I fill up.

    I've honestly never pushed it past 450 or so miles to see how far I 'could' get and I never ran it out of gas or even coasted it on fumes. But I'm pretty sure that is close to the limit.

    Need to figure you're at an advantage given probable higher altitude out there in Colorado - No? I know my motorcycle certainly get improved mileage figure the higher we are. Great MPG car and still doing so at 200,000 miles, is testimony to that, and your obvious maintenance of same.

    I'm doing a 700-mile trip this coming week, we'll see what she does out of the city.
