Re: Do Tires make a Big Diff. in MPG ?

I second that. I switched all four OEM Dunlop tires to Michelin X-Radial in 2009 (after 4 years on Dunlops and 1 scary blow-out at highway speeds) and immediately lost about 5 MPG (49 -> 43 or so, so...

Battery success story!

Just had my check engine and IMA lights come on in my 2005 HCH I (CVT). My mileage has been slipping from high 40s to low 30s over last eight years or so, much worse since I moved to a big city and...

Re: New tires = huge difference

I had a high-speed blow out of my left rear in 2008 with the stock Dunlop FE tires and replaced all 4 with Michelin X Radials. The ride is better - noticably the grip and turning are much improved,...

Re: "xcel" in CNN Hypermiling Special

I've actually seen the Accord myself. I was in Chicago a few years ago and had dinner with Wayne. He's a good guy.

"xcel" in CNN Hypermiling Special

I'm not sure if you guys have seen this yet - Wayne Gerdes (screen name: xcel) is in a CNN special about hypermiling. He used to be really active here at GH but I think he maintains his own...

Re: My HCH experience with 5W20 instead of 0W20

0W20 seems to be completely irregularly stocked by both Wal-Mart and the auto parts stores. Do the newer hybrids not use this viscosity of oil? You'd think with more hybrids/fuel efficient cars...

Re: Honda dropping Accord Hybrid

Or maybe try it on a 4-cylinder Accord instead of just giving up on it... the hybrid system just works better on smaller engines.

Re: @#$# SERVICE DEPT!!!

My car has had several small things done at the dealer. They ALWAYS dent my mileage significantly. I'm fairly sure they let it idle for a good amount of time. It's not really a big deal, but it is a...

Re: Glow In The Dark Hybrid logo for Honda Civic Hybrid

Curious about this old thread...

Did anyone try the mixing approach - mixing the powder with silver paint?

Re: GM to subsidize gas purchases

Wow. They don't subsidize their entire fleet, only the most egregious of gas-guzzlers like the Hummers and the Yukons...

Wow. Exactly the thinking that has been ****ing GM so far.

Re: Antenna Question........

I do know that in new Civics as well as the previous generation (mine), the antenna was integrated into the rear window. I understood that the '03-'05 hybrid had the front roof-mounted antenna to...

Really? Ya think? Gosh, for a second there I thought Kenny was using sarcastic hyperbole to make a point. Boy, I guess I was wrong.

Re: Mad market for used fuel-sippers CNN.com article

I know, I'm almost convinced to hawk my car and get a 2006 HCH for a few thousand bucks. Easier said than done, though. What a profit - I only paid 18k for mine anyway.

Re: No Civic Hybrid for me, after all

Well, obviously this is a hybrid forum so everyone here is an advocate of hybrid cars, and will be disappointed when someone decides against getting one, but you have to do what you have to do. Some...

Re: Thoughts after a 2005 Mile Trip

I'm still trying to understand why other people see Myrtle Beach as the destination to hit in SC. It's a dirty, rednecky, awful beach - and you were probably there during one of the series of loud,...

Re: Why the heck do I get better mileage the first half of tank?!?!

I haven't noticed any fluctuations in mileage with the start or end of a tank - mine usually stays quite consistent given identical driving conditions - but I have noticed that the last 1/3 or so of...

Re: Hello from new member

Glad to have you. Both of your cars are terrific vehicles, and you'll see that some people on this site have developed obsessive techniques for squeezing every last mpg possible out of them.

Re: Senators to push for $100 gas rebate checks

I completely agree with Chuck. The spirit of the rebate is that this is a short-term crisis that just needs temporary help. In fact, it encourages behavior that only serves to exacerbate our...

Re: Oil smashes $75 barrier
