I am a daily commuter driving 125 miles to and from work. I have over 130K miles on my Civic LX. I get an average of 36-37 mpg (mostly highway). Here's my secret. Mobil 1 5w30, Mobil 1 oil filter. I use only Shell gasoline. If I switch to an off-brand, the mpg goes down to 32-33mpg. This car is the best car I have ever owned. It is smooth, agile, and looks great. Very affordable car. I can' wait to purchase a 2006.
MPG. Smooth interior features. Easily servicable motor. Light and nimble.
This car dents easily. If someone leans on the panels, it dents VERY easily.
