Re: First tank....

I'm surprised you keep your tire pressures so low. 50 mpg in the San Juan area traffic is very impressive!

Re: First tank....

Hi SD3 Driver:

The HCH-II is far better built than an SRT4. You are far more likely to pinch a tire and ruin a rim than ever break an axle.

Welcome to the care free ways of owning a Honda

Re: First tank....

Well, the axel broke because of wheel hop and all that stuff related to high torque engines... but the other pieces of the suspension were affected by the combo of bad, really bad road conditions and wheels high pSi. and also that it was design as a "sport" "hard" suspension, so with the road conds it was facing, it was a matter of time.... but everything is OK now and I'm having fun driving both

Re: First tank....

Another in 739 miles, 14.75 gals 50.10 mpgs... surprising, never went under 52mpgs as per the SGII but the final numbers were 2 mpgs under...

Re: First tank....

Hmmm, anyone having problems with keeping the tires PS I????? Last fill up was also a good time to get that PS I up to 40, but after only 14 days are down to 37 ( don't know if it makes a diff. but I did try nitrogen instead of an air compressor)... I did notice a difference so I knew something was not right and was surpirsed with that loss in two weeks. From a 57avg. the first week to about a 52 last week and the glides were a bit shorter than usual... checked for leaks and found none so I'm a bit confused ... oh, I forgot, the tires are Michelin Energy...

Re: First tank....

I set mine to 40 and after a while they are down to 38. The air compressor may heat the air up and when it cools down you have a little lower psi than you thought. A 1 psi loss per month is also mentioned here:

Re: First tank....

Well, time to get those tires psi up again, up to 40 again and there were down to 31... maybe that nitrogen was not a good idea at all also checked the tread wear and all tires are @ 9/32 from oem 10/32 that means 1/32 loss for every 4,000 miles or 32,000 miles of tread life... i'm going for at least 50,000 miles...

Re: First tank....

Last tank was the first one over 800 miles (803) with less than 16 gals consumed for 50.7 mpgs. I was a bit surprised because I was getting 58-62 avg. mpgs per the scangaugeII and the tank ended 10 mpgs below.... seems like the scangauge is over reporting by almost 20% and car FCD by 7%... at least got that 800 tank out of the way, now looking for 850 and 900...
