Re: My first 500 mile/ 50 MPG tank!

You think that's nerve-wracking, try drving into Big Bend National Park in BFE Texas with 0 bars. I found myself praying there was a gas station in the middle of the desert National Park. Luckily,...

Mostly my optimized 5-mile work commute, and a few trips on the regional expressways to visit people in NW Austin or...

Re: Sun shades large enough for HCHII windshield?

I bought one at the dealership the day I picked my HCHII up. It's made specifically for the '06 Civic. The brand name is "Heat Shield."

Re: Trading in 06 Civic Hybrid...

Technically, I traded it in. The buyer, a friend and coworker of mine, accompanied me to the dealership when I went to pick up my '06, and bought it from the dealership at my asking price. This saved...

Re: What's the best temperature?

It's been over 100 here in Austin for the past couple of weeks. I'm getting outstanding mileage. Over 60mpg, in fact. Yes, that's with no a/c. :-) In general, I've found that 70-80 degrees is optimal...

Re: Trading in 06 Civic Hybrid...

I sold my '05 civic hybrid for $19K back in late April. It was one year old, with 11,800 miles. I upgraded to an '06.

I don't get your reasoning for selling your hybrid though. My roundtrip...

Re: Window Problems?

Tulip: The window jumps the track as it nears the top when closing. Lubing the track as a precaution sounds like a fine idea.

Re: Has anything broken on your HCH II?

The receipt says "lubed driver's side window run channel w/ silicone spray." I don't see any smudging on the glass.

Re: Has anything broken on your HCH II?

The dealership lubricated the run channel for my driver's side window, and the window no longer jumps the track.

Re: Has anything broken on your HCH II?

Today, after 3000+ miles, my driver's side window has decided to jump its track at about 1" from closing. It started happening just after I washed the car, thankfully. I'd hate to have sprayed soapy...

Re: 03 Battery Readings

The battery in my '05 got drained completely once while waiting in line at a credit union drive through. The car was in auto-stop mode and the a/c was not running (of course). The headlights were not...

Re: Is this someone here?

Hell, if I lived near Atlanta, I'd seriously consider buying that car, just to flip it for a couple grand profit. I recently sold my '05 HCH with 10,800 miles for $19,000, and upgraded to an '06.

Re: Just ordered my upgrade

Since I'm selling to good friends, both coworkers (a mother-daughter pair), I'm being generous and not asking anywhere near blue book. If I were to sell it to an unknow 3rd pary, I might ask $21,000,...

Re: Just ordered my upgrade

Actually, another question occurred to me. I know I will get the '06 federal tax credit for my purchase of a new hybrid. I wonder if my coworker will be eligible for the same tax credit for...

Re: Just ordered my upgrade

He said it's $100 for the paperwork voodoo. Seems worth it, considering it saves me over $1K in taxes.

Just ordered my upgrade

When I bought my '05 Civic Hybrid last April, I just showed up at the dealership and picked one out. There were only two to choose from, of course, but at least they were in stock. Today, I went to a...

I might drive up there from Austin. Give us a maps.google.com link though.

Re: New exhaust 2 1/4"

I've just rolled over 7K miles, and my lifetime average is just over 52mpg (and climbing).

Those hills on 1431 are *steep* :)

Re: New exhaust 2 1/4"

I live in Austin. I'd be glad to meet you for a beer (or two on me) and find out how to modify my HCH to attain a few more mileage points.

Re: Airbag warning light

My "side airbag off" light came on briefly the other day, and though it was curious, I can't recall what the situation was at the time. I remember I was stopped though.

Re: How do you determine mpg?

I'd prefer to go by my car's OBD, but alas... I don't trust it. I calculate my miles per gallon the old-fashioned way... miles divided by gallons.

Re: A very minor point

I turn my HCH off before putting it back into 1st gear when I park. As has been noted, it's dumb for the motor to come back on in that situation.

Regarding the cold front.... YAYYYYYYYY!!!!! I'm...

Re: What is the pattern behind IMA charging

That happens to me, too. I'm pretty sure it only happens when I've just changed gears and not touched the gas pedal. Tapping the gas pedal briefly will activate the regen, as you've noted.
