HI, who gets over 600 kms a tank constently??
I average out abuot 500 on 45 liters, and and guessing i can get 550/50 liters if i went the distance.
This is mainly all city driving and i have goton over 600 on the hwy.
Right now im trying to stay in the economy vtec mode with the AC off the entire tank, just to see if i can get 600 in the city.
Next would be to find a light weight set of 15s, maybe hybrids? to see if that helps out a bit.
Im using the DX steelies at the moment, and am assuming they weight in at about 20 lbs.

Not sure what 600km is in miles, but I've gone 460 miles on one tank of gas in my EX.

I dunno, about 50-50 city/highway for me. I cruise around 60-75 on the highway -- always on cruise control. Around the city is where I'll really drive like an ass: 10 over, floor it when the light changes, etc. 420 miles to the tank is routine for me. The highest I've gone is 465, I think.

Man, I have an Si, and if I don't romp on it, I can get 350 miles on a tank during a week. A lot of stop and go with a bit of highway mixed in FYI.

Doubt the CAI is hurting your mpg, unless your foot is buried in the accellerator more now b/c you like how it sounds. The mpg on my Si actually went up a little bit once I installed my Injen.

I dunno, I hardly ever go over 3,ooo rpms, but I do have it floored till I get there and I consistently go around 60+ no matter what the limit is.

I'll try to slow it down on this next tank and see if I can get anything remotely close to what you guys have gotten.

I have an 07 SI and just yesterday I was at 420 miles and I had 1 light left on my gas guage. I drive about 160 miles a day, almost all highway, and that is pretty normal for me. I've gotten a little better, but not much. And driving so much, I take it pretty easy.
Before I started making that drive, I think I was in the high 300s to low 400s per tank doing mostly city driving with a little highway.

The temperature of the air has a LOT to do with it too. Morning driving in the cold will mean decreased MPG, warmer weather will mean increased MPG.
