gas mileage on a 4th gen

Hi i'm thinking about purchasing a 4th gen with vtec... What type of gas mileage do people get out of these cars? I am still a student and am wondering how expensive it is to maintain these cars fuel wise?

Re: gas mileage on a 4th gen

I'm around 25mpg, but I do a lot of commuting to school, 35 miles each way, 5 days a week. Once I get some proper sized tires it should bring me up to 26-27, on 205/40/17s right now and so the speedo is a little fast.

This tank I'll probably average out to around 21-22 though because a few days ago I decided to take the long way home from school through the hills on California highway 36West, running around 6k-7k rpm in 2nd and 3rd around the corners kills gas mileage.

Please dont get 40's. take it from someone who has 35's -_- the ride is terrible. You want atleast 45's for a cushiony feel
