    I'm around the 320 mark when I fill up and it's usually around 11-12 gallons. So generally 27mpg.

    Do wish the tank held a couple more gallons though. We easily put 300+ miles on in five days.

    The furthest I've dared gone was about 450 miles. Again, that was when I was making a long-distance drive, somewhat drafting off a friend in his 'vette, and trying to make the long drive as affordable as possible for mysrlf. Normally, however, I am getting to around 350 like the others...

    geez. I used to get slightly over 400 with my old ex.
  • anyone know bout cold air intakes?? short ram or cold air for 06-07 si?
    :D
  • cmon lets get this thread rollin! whos got the 18inch rims? how they run? what tires on em? how much is it for the window tint? :D ive decided, definitely dont want cold air intake, maybe shortram.. but really, the stock intake goes to the best area to suck up air. But it could be shorter! Im thinking the best thing would be to go from the air box, just right around the battery to the fender above the wheel where the stock pipe goes. rather than going down to the floor then back up. What you guys think? take a look
  • if your getting that many miles per tank of gas then I want your si.The most I have ever got was 260 miles on a tank of gas with 2 bars left over on the gas gage,and I wasn't even beating on the car or reving past 5,000 rpms,shift points at 3-4 rpm,and it was all highway miles,with the cruse control on at 60 mph.
  • I got the short ram injen intake and the only thing it did was make the car sound louder,but works good with a combination of upgrades.the most noticeable power gains I got was when I installed an engine torch damper got it from pro civic. I couldn't beleive it.Puts the power to the weels and it was pretty easy to install.It's also adjustable I have it on the stiffest setting it even made the car sound completely different,also I have a high flow catilyc converter,installed it myself,must get the 02 sencer elliminator or you will get a check engine light,happend to me.The sencor elliminator is sold sepperatly,but it did get rid of the check engine light.had to take the cat half way off to get it on there.

    Yes, but what mileage did you get? Just saying "so and so bars left on the gauge" doesn't give any indication of mileage.

    You'd need to divide the number of gallons pumped into the miles driven.

    In my experience with my dad's 07 Civic EX, the low-fuel light didn't come on until about 1 bar left, and after that, it wasn't close to empty yet.

    Revving to 4,000 RPM isn't exactly "driving easy" although cruising at 60 MPH is. The question is, if it was all highway miles, where was it your shift points were "under 5,000 rpm?" Just merging, or was some other driving involved?

    Great car. I don't drive it too hard, or, despite having a Valentine I radar detector, town is swarming with traps. Only problems, a slightly notchy upshift from second to third, and the melting sun visor on driver's side. I've replaced it every summer X 3. When warranty runs out this spring I'm asking the dealer to sell me a bunch of visors wholesale.

    Really a great car. A trip to drive in the mountains here.
  • i can not find any info on what the top speed on the 07 si really is, does anyone know,or has any one experienced it for themselves. im kind of a [non-permissible content removed] when it comes to driving fast nowadays, must my age(lol) the fastest ive had mine is 102 mph, and i must say "smoooooth" i love my car,especially the way the nighthawk black pearl looks in the sun.

    Limited to 130mph. 2006s are supposed to be ungoverned and capable of 140+ MPH.
  • own an 08 si coupe and saw 33 mpg highway average speed 70+ from new york to maryland. around town you can get 23 to 27mpg depending on how you drive.
  • 08 si had it up to 120 but took a while to get there. with enough road and no cops could see it hit 130 tops. also your nearing redline at those speeds.

    6th gear isn't where you'd hit top end.

    No. No. No - in that order.
  • NE1 know??

    Thanks
  • I will be receiving a new 2012 Civic Si Coupe wih navigation and summer tires, which I won in a sweepstakes. The car is being built, and in short supply due to the earthquake in Japan. My question is this: If I were to sell this, or trade it in for a different car, how much can it bring?

    Thanks
