Default 1993 Honda Civic five-speed MPG?

My mom has a 93 Honda Civic that is 5-speed, i need to know what (or how i can find) the miles per gallon, i need to know so i can tell how much i should pay my mom for gas to use her car to drive to my girlfriends (who lives nearly 40 mins away from me)

any help greatly appreciated

This probably isn't enough information :/

1) Fill up the car before you leave.

2) Reset the tripmeter as soon as you fill up.

3) Drive to friend's house

4) Refill at friend's house before you depart on return trip; write down the gallons it took to fill the tank (from pump readout/receipt)

5) Write down mileage from tripmeter.

6) Divide number of miles on tripmeter by the number of gallons on the receipt; that's your miles per gallon on the trip.'93 Civic w/5 speed should get about 35 mpg on the highway if not using a/c; sometimes more, sometimes less.

The EPA isn't terribly helpful on this one. Of the six versions they list four of them are 5-speed and range from 25-35 mpg in the city and from 32-41 mpg on the highway. The only obvious difference is the one with 25/32 is a 1.6L engine while all the ones that are 29/36 and better are 1.5L engines.

The way to go with this is to be on the generous side (if the engine is the 1.5L) and to assume it is 29 mpg for the city mileage and 36 mpg for the highway miles. From there it is calculation based on miles rather than time.

before you leave make sure the car fills up to FULL

then reset the trip meter to 0

make your trip to your gf place and do your thing and come home

when u get back in town go to the gas station and fill it up to FULL again

divide the miles on your trip meter by how much gas you just filled up and that should be your average MPG you get


i fill it up FULL b4 i leave

my trip took me 200 miles back and forth

i fill it up to FULL again and it took 6 gallons to fill up

200/6 = 33.33 so average of 33/34 MPG
