My 'old' i-VTEC!

This is an unashamed bit of nostalgia - I spotted my 06 Civic on the road yesterday, and despite furious waving on my part I received a blank stare back!

Enjoy it Ma'am,........ and cheer up for Chrissake!!

Anyhow, it's an excuse for a gratuitous picture of it on one of my frequent jaunts to the Scottish Highlands last year:-

Not quite - it's a fair bit farther North - on the Road To The Isles, and those mountains are the Kintails - just along the road from my mate's house, hence the frequent journeys.....

The total trip was about 1450 miles, with the journey up there (600 miles!) and back to the South Coast done through the night so that I could make fairly 'brisk' progress.

The computer would lead me to believe the consumption was 43mpg-ish, but I reckon from previous actual measurements that it was actually about 41mpg...... not bad at all considering that a similar recent trip in my 2.2 returned an actual average of 45.7mpg!!

Fuel used in the i-VTEC = Shell V Power.

Wow, thats fairly close to the official figures from Honda. I expect there was some spirited driving on the journey which makes the average MPG all the more impressive.
Interesting to note that the diesel didnt offer that much over the petrol (assuming the same sort of driving and distance apply in both cases etc. etc).
