    It's back up to the $3.20's now. I'm gonna have to check my tires because when I checked them last they were all at 20-25 each and I put 35 all around. I didn't notice mpg change but it was a whole lot smoother.

    As far as tire psi I just keep it 5psi under the maximum psi listed on the tire. Remember that air in your tires expands as it gets hotter so you don't want too much psi.

    i have aem sri which i believe helps a little with mpg (little)
    roof rack which i believe fcks my mpg up (wind drag) but i need it for my bike

    i probably do 60% local 40% freeway

    That wouldn't help you at all, in fact that would likely make things worse for a while since the computer would be learning everything over again.

    Sup peeps, i became a hypermiler when i was 17. Became an avid driver going to high school and had low cash for gas

    1. When filling up, my advice is fill up a half tank. should cost about $25-30. Also add 1OUNCE of SeaFOAM per gallon in that tank ! This will clean your car and improve fuel economy.
    2. Remove spare tire and other crap that will slow you down.
    3. Have proper inflated tires, 5psi below the maximum-should be 35psi-stock tires.
    4. Use Cruise control all the time unless going up hill (-_-)


    Aftermarket parts

    1. Magnaflow Catback-1-2MPG improvement
    2. COLD AIR INTAKE-2-3 MPG improvement


    02 Accord-L4 AT 28MPG highway and Currently 30 City, 34-36 MPG :rofl::rofl:highway

    if i roll 50mph with cruise control i hit 37-38 mpg lol at 1900 rpm

    Gotta say, I just did a short road trip (~1000kms~) through the mountains, and my average was just over 31 mpg. I have the AV6 and no, I don't drive like a granny, hell, I didn't even have cruise on most of the time, the TCH has horrible drivers... City, on the other hand, I regularly do 24-27, yet again, not the most gentle driver.

    I just take good care of my car though, seafoamed recently, little injector cleaner about 3-4 times a year, regular oil changes, and only driving like a total douchebag about 25% of the time :duckhunt:
