Depends on your driving. a honda is not a very toquey engine so people tend to mash on it reducing mpg.

It's pretty easy to find out. write down your mileage when you fill your tank next time. then when its time to get gas again, fill the tank and write down how many miles you've gone and divide that by how many gallons it took to fill it up. The answer will be your MPG.

My 1993 Accord 10th Anniversary Edition, which has the same F22A1 engine as yours (and 4speed auto), gets roughly 400 miles to the tank, which includes both city and highway driving.On a recent trip from Dallas to El Paso, I hit 274 miles on exactly half of a tank. Keep in mind this was with the cruise set at 70 and no air conditioning running.The more you mash the gas, the poorer mileage you will receive. If you accelerate slowly from traffic lights, you will do well.*edit* Oh, and my car has 218000 miles on it and it still runs like a top. Make sure you get a balance shaft retainer clip put in, or your balance shaft seal will 'walk' on you and you'll end up dumping all your oil in a short period. This was a recall on the 94-97 Accords with the F22 in it, but not on the 90-93s.
