Question about 1996 Honda Civic
Well, here's one I have that is confusing. I have a 1996 Honda Civic that is only averaging about 24 mpg. I just recently bought it, and the previous owner said he was getting 33mpg. I do not drive aggressively, maybe about 5 mph over in some cases 10. The motor is not the stock motor, but a B16A1 VTEC. The clutch is a stage 2 upgraded clutch. There are no check engine lights.
What the previous owner told you could be correct(that is 33mpg), B16A1 Vtec engine were made for power and fuel efficiency. Your clutch upgrade would not affect your fuel consumption unless you feel anything slipping during acceleration. I say you give your engine a good tune up and compare the milage again.
