After reading about so many civics and their gas mileage, I've got a
03 4cyl auto Accord and on a houston to austin round trip (hilly
highway driving), 95 degree weather and slight wind, 600 pounds load
(people + luggage) using cruise control at 65 to 70 mph and a/c, got
37 mpg (about 6000 miles on car at the time). However around town
(short hops 10miles or less) I get about 24 mpg so its a lot less but
I recall once I had a 77 Monte Carlo 305 v8 auto from texas to florida
doing 70mph in summer w/ a/c (no passengers) got 24 mpg.
