Installing a cold air intake might help.
63 MPG, WOW! Amazing results, insighter, great job!
I drive a 2005 Honda Insight and my mileage 30% better than the expected MPG figures solely through conservative driving techniques. Tire pressure at the max for each tire, speeds under 60 MPH when practical to do so, very limited use of brakes, such as coasting up to stop signs and red lights. The one aspect I use is to imagine the gas and brake pedals are made of egg shells so both are used tenderly so as not to crack the shell. My lifetime fuel average is over 63 MPG with 121K miles.
Many members left their valueable comments here. All these are authentic and useful and also helpful. Thanks every buddies. I have to say u can save gas mods increasing your fuel mileage by 20%-40%. [url=_no_links_www.toyotaofsouthflorida.com/]miami used toyota corolla[/url]
How much does that highline hybrid thing run ya on the accord or for your v6 there fasterern?
rangerman is on the right track, as I have a six cell water4gas style hydrogen generator on my 90 blazer and average with a 262 cubic inch 4.3l v6 with throttle body injection 31 mpg. this being mostly freeway . I will post pics soon.
"I've also been told that just putting a cold-air intake on would help a lot."
I use royal purple motor oil it costs more but the oil lasts for 3 filter changes 9,000 miles or more I change the oil at 9,000 miles and the filters at 3,000 I have a 2003 elanntra hyundai and get about 30 mpg average check it out at royal purple .com
As for the K&N filter, it is true that they generally tend to breath better than your standard filter. But remember that this is because the filtering will be less when compared to your standard filter.
Have you heard about this mod/company? Here's a link: www.highlinehybrids.com I've installed one of their units on my '02 GMC Yukon and have noticed an immediate increase in performance as well as 3-5 miles per gallon increase in MPG.
I think the only difference between WAI and CAI is a length of the 3" pipe, in my case I just removed upper air filter cover and attached cone air filter right to the bottom part of filter box, something like this - I think it should be one for I-4 too
I generally end up doing about half and half. My commute to work is about 20 miles and around 8 of them are highway. I try to keep up on everything, tire pressure, keeping the air filter as clean as possible, reducing the speed with which I accelerate, meaning slow and steady versus first off the line.
Here is my take on this - I'm no expert in this but talking from my own experience and some educated guesses
Would a K&N filter be worth it? I have an 03 Accord, 2.4 liter auto, and would like to do something to get better mileage. Currently I'm at around 25-28 if I'm lucky. I've tried to get my foot out of it.
The Best Thing I could suggest is to monitor your tire pressure,Get yourself a good free flowing muffler,and a free flowing air filter or intake system.If your honda can bring more air in and get it out you will make more power thus getting better fuel mileage.keep your ignition components working properly as well(ie;Plugs,Wires ect..)
