    Just got back from a Tennessee-Minnesota roundtrip.

    2006 Honda Civic LX, MT, now with ~4500 miles on it. Almost all
    driving with A/C.

    Highest mpg: 42.09 -- Freeway + some town driving, avg 60mph.

    Lowest: 37.37 -- Freeway, avg 70-75 mph. Ethanol "enhanced" gas. The
    next tankfull was without ethanol: 39.51mpg.

    I'm very happy with this. The car is still pretty new; when does the
    mpg usually top out?

    May I please answer you question with one. I just bought one (AT)
    Still on first tank of gas. In view of the MMT warning by Honda and
    their Top Tier gas emphasis, have you gone out of your way to pick a
    certain brand of gasoline; which one?

    I just go with whatever's handy, usually the Shell station near the
    house or the BP near where I work. I'll usually avoid the
    independents, because of a bad experience with tainted gasoline a
    couple of decades ago.

    My understanding is that MMT isn't widely used, mainly because it can
    have effects on many newer engines from a range of companies, but I
    haven't followed the issue closely.

    And as far as the Top Tier gas, when I bought the Civic, the Honda
    dealership gave me a $100 gas card from....

    Exxon/Mobil, which isn't on the list.
