I know I am almost a year late commenting on this and we have the exact same car. We use regular (87 octane) with no problems. Manual says it is OK to use this fuel. I did try premium several times and could never get over 23 mpg. On our other car, a 98 Accord with virtually identical power to weight ratio, I get 39/30 mpg. I have always wondered why the same is so poor in gas mileage. we bought this car new so I know how it's been cared for. We change our own oil so it is a lot less than $100.Report it
Drewtoo88 again... I have had this car now for nearly five years and I'm still very happy with the purchase. I just went over 100k mi and the only thing I have replaced are breaks and the tires. Still nothing major despite the fact I push it hard every day on my 40 mile round trip to work. Big tune up at 60k and another at 90k $700 both times. A few more bulbs and that's it. The car is much tougher than my wife's '07 MB e350! And I can't tell you how many times people attempt to race/keep up in any similarly matched vehicle (mini, gti, civic site) I don't win every time, but I win more than I lose. And ps, I'm an old fart at 45.... ;-)Report it
