It's pretty simple.
Rpm around 3300 3500.
Speed 100 to 110
130k trip to work
130k trip back
Filled up Thursday morning. Hoped to not fill up til Friday when
Back in metro melb.

526 k's clocked.
Shift points 3k
Most, 95% of the driving (trip) is in 6th
Will post the fuel/odo pic I captured. Did not get the bowser, which
Could be wrong

thanks to a topic posted here in s2ki I started tracking my fuel milage in an excel spreadsheet back in 2013.
I have 2 categories, one that tracks milage up to when the gas light comes on, and one until i fill up. In 2013 (and pretty much the same in 2014), i avg 350-380km before the gas light came on...then i usually drove it until fill up which would be 380-400km on avg (all city). So essentially, i fill up every 400km. The most i've ever driven after the gas light comes on is about 25km, which seems to be a safe zone...probably could go 30-35km safely without running out of gas. Hwy is tricky to track because i don't like to take risks when i travel but i think the most i got on a tank was around 550-600km a few years ago driving to Ontario.

Does anyone here actually follow the Honda Owner Manual guide on when to shift gears?

If so has this helped in any way? I used to own a mazda 3 for 3 years and in the s2k shifting is way different. I'm usually revving before 3k while on 2 bar temp until reaches the 3rd bar I would go over 3k rpm. Although my gear/shifting is not matching what the Honda Guide says.

You guys get awesome fuel economy! I v-tec a few times a day, and drive primarily in the city and get pretty bad fuel economy.

What... I'm in 6th gear when I'm going 70km.

For those that hate the ap2 gauges as well I love it so want a ap2 cluster for the sake of temperature and time

I am repeatedly doing 500km using 98 ron Shell mostly city/traffic driving, plus a couple of spirited mountain runs.
I almost change gears every 10km so I am usually in 6th gear @60km/h.
