Default How to get more milage/performance out of my Honda Accord 2.0l Type-s i-vtec? I only get about...

...24mpg? I get only about 24 mpg in the city and not much more on highways. I feel as though im not getting the performance it should be giving me. I dont want to have low milage whilst not getting the performance. I was thinking about getting the ECU reprogrammed to increase the mpg but i dont want it to drop in performance and speed wise. What is the best thing I can do to increase the mpg and performance? Because I feel Get better fuel injectors/larger intakes/fuel pump? i-vtec controller wouldnt do much on a stock motor would it?

If this is a normal MPG for this car then please correct me and just tell me how to increase performance instead of mpg.


Because i feel i should get*

fit a new air filter element.

change the engine oil for the very best which the car can take, eg 15w30 fully synthetic or whatever the manual suggests

Assuming the car is regularly serviced and there's nothing wrong with it, just Google economy driving techniques.

I wouldn't go buying any aftermarket chips for it, Honda engineers know what they're doing.

To be honest, it's a fairly big heavy car and if your city driving includes a lot of sitting in traffic jams 24mpg isn't too bad.

the ecu in that car has to be flashed, Its not like the obd 1 were i can program it going down the road on a laptop. So unless you own a flashing system you can get that thought right out of your head. Next thing a vtec controller only lets you set vtec at a lower rpm. and unless your cranking out mas power below 5k rpm go ahead and get that idea out of your head too.

Now if you want power, buy you a obd 2 to obd1 harness a socketed p28 obd1 dizzy some 450 blue top injectors, a turbo set up turbo, turbo pipping, turbo manifold 3'' exhaust all way back nice down pipe so on so on But the truth of the matter is sounds like you have no idea so just drive the car and be happy your not driving a chevy
