    What kind of mileage are you Integra owners getting? I've got a 95 LS
    with an automatic, 120K which only seems to get around 250 miles on a
    full tank of gas. It's been cold here this winter in Illinois but I
    recently had the plugs, cap, rotor, wires & filter changed but no
    change at all.

    Summer driving would usually get me between 275-290 miles on a full

    Is this normal? Anything else I might want to look at to get better

  2. Yes, it's normal to lose a few mpg in winter driving for various
    reasons. You need to measure actual mpg and get back to us.

    You need to calculate real MPG. A 'tankful' isn't a valid measurement of
    anything. Are we talking about a thakful of cold or warm gasoline? See
    what I mean?

    Apples to apples. Write the mileage on the reciept where the volume of
    fuel is recorded. Divide it out.

    And do that over a month or so to smooth out transients in the numbers.

    Some suggestions for maximizing mileage, and experience with
    same, that I have collected over the last few years,
    specific to Hondas:


    I'm seeing extreme cold (relative to where one lives)
    dropping mileage 5 to 10% on my 91 Civic. I am pretty sure
    my part of the country does not use the lower heating value
