lol

To OP: yes 3k is about normal at 50mph. I usually am at around 4k when cruisin on the interstate.

As far as mileage goes, in MY experience when trying to conserve fuel or just not beat on the car I average about 25-27 mpg in town/small bit of highway and about 28-30mpg on the interstate. I can drive from my house to Atlanta on one tank of gas just about( I live in N Florida so that a 6 1/2 hour drive...)

Oh I have a 2000 base 5spd, with the good ole h22a4 for reference.

First you have a 2.2L H22a4 if it is a USDM, our cars are low geared. We get anywhere from 22 to 26 mpg. A whole tank I would say in the 280 mile range or more depending on how you drive.

Re: 50Mph at 30000Rpm ???

there is a 6 spd. but it costs like 10g's and all they did was make the gears even shorter so it works out the same as the spd

that was an approximation. 65 sounds about right for 3k but yeah i like the fact that when i give it a tiny bit of gas at 65 it still picks up but i'd rather be saving gas at 2.3-2.6k

They've specifically 2.0L, so I'm presuming they're from Europe. But the engine rpm/speed sound about right.

Our cars have about a 15 gallon tank so......22-26 mpg like you said =330-390 miles per tank. Not 280

Like I said depends on how you drive, I have to get on the freeway every week during rush hour so I get up to speed rather quickly on the on ramp. I'm in and out of Vtec all the time. Plus I'm throwing my first code since I had the car. Something about bank one slow to respond. I guess that means that the front O2 sensor is bad? I bought the denso OE I'll have to get it installed tomorrow. Too much snow to lie on the ground and do it myself.
