  1. Wheels and Tires
    I apologize as I have searched, but have not found the results I was looking for. I am in the market for summer rims and tires, and I drive 400+ miles (highway) a week. Interested in opinions on which performance tire gives you the most bang for your buck and wears the best. Looking for an...

    I just bought a new 2012 Civic LX. I am curious as to how the mileage is calculated. Does it measure the fuel flow through the injector? The fuel pump? A super-accurate gas tank level? And what about the instant mileage? It looks an awful lot like the vacuum-gauge economy meters from the 80s...

    New owner of the Civic Si and love everything about it. Thinking about putting the HFP kit (body kit, wheels, suspension) but wondering will my fuel mileage suffer a bit , improve it, or stay the same? I don't mind having the little Si handle a bit better but don't want to sacrifice the...

    Just thought I'd post a picture of my first mileage milestone! The picture's a little blurry, sorry. It was taken while driving, (which I don't recommend doing). Please feel free to post your own milestones!

    So i have to ask the question. what is the real MPG's you are seeing vs the posted numbers on your window sticker? also how many miles can you squeeze out of one tank? I have to ask as i was in my friends 08 coupe EX last night and she had 220 miles on that tank was still half full! is this typical?

    Yesterday, I worked with a friend who has an 87 Chevy truck, that he bought new in 1986, that now has 406,800 miles on the odometer which stopped working last year when the clutch was replaced. So it has more miles than that. It has had 3,000-4,000 mile oil changes using Pennzoil 10-30. The...

    Do you guys go buy it or not? In the owners manual it states to atleast go 600 miles without driving it hard. In other words, no:pinkvtec::pinkvtec::pinkvtec::pinkvtec: I've heard people say this is bs and I've also heard people who stand by this. Just curious as to what you guys think.

    Despite being known for its engine building prowess, Honda's new 2012 Civic does not live up to rivals in delivering the new 40-mpg benchmark number, set by cars like the 2011 Hyundai Elantra. In fact, Honda falls one short, with a 39-mpg highway rating. Powered by a 1.8-liter i-VTEC engine...

    2012 Civic engine: K series or something new? Are they still keeping the k20 engine in the 2012 civic or is there something new to look forward too? I love my civic as much anyone does but sometimes I'm left wanting a faster motor..... :(
