Yes! I had an acura integra and the mileage is great! I used to get about 300 miles a tank and that was city driving.

depends on the driver and condition of the automobile. With proper care, it will easily top 35 mpg on the highway.

All Integras get good gas mileage (generally above 30 mpg). However both the Acura Integra GSR , and type R were developed with High out put V-tech engines and require premium fuel for optimum preformance (93 octane ) so this negates some of the "good gas mileage " characteristics. A better bet might be the Integra GS or SE (depending on what year you looked at they are the same car). This Integra features all the extras you find in the GSR (alloy wheels , 15" tires , sportier suspension (there is a suspension bar in the back) and standard factory rear spoiler. This car has the same 1.8 liter engine (without the V-tech) and requires 87 octane . Look to achieve over 30 mpg (remember to shift that 5 speed properly!). All in all these are fun , reliable cars and have been known to last well over 300k. The Integras are some of the last Acuras that were made over in Japan. They have wonderful craftmanship and have created Acuraas loyal customer base that still exsists today.

Yes, you will get good gas mileage. I have a swapped 92 with a gsr engine in it. I'm getting 28city/32highway....but the difference between what I have is the transmission. The gsr transmission has a closer gear ratio which gives it that really good acceleration but that means it gets up to top speed quicker. If your riding on the highway back and forth to work, you will be in a higher rpm range than what a long geared ls trans (like I have). I'm usually at 75 at 3k, a gsr might be around 3.5k or 4k. As long as you keep it tuned up you will still be getting in the 30's for mpg. Always use a higher grade gas for these cars because of the higher cam profiles in the vtec camshafts. When I first did my swap I was using regular, and was only getting 25mpg on the highway. Once I upped it to the plus I was getting 35mpg, and I'll be testing what kind of a difference premium will do for me.
