are you kidding me? just because you drive a frieghtliner doesn't make you an expert.

if you post pictures of your trip's mileage and your gas receipt with the amount of gas put into it, i'll believe it. Until then, i'm still a skeptic.

Side note: I really apologize for hijacking this thread. I won't post random crap in here anymore.

Yep 2006 (this year) is the last year for the RSX. Acura wants the TSX to be their entry level car hence boosting up their “status”

The Type-S is but the base is likely unleaded

The new SI has the same 2.0 Vtec engine as the 05/06 Type-S but is tuned down (190somthing hp vs 210) but that's about all that's taken from the RSX. Acura isnt going to replace the RSX with anything, they are just straight dropping it and making the TSX their entry level car.


In all its lame that Acura is doing this but w/e its their decision. I just hate the new civics with a passion. so god awfully ugly Oh and trust me the new SI.... gets owned by the 06 Type-S

talkin **** about a sleeper 85 monte carlo ss. the fastest time i ran in it was a 12.13. no it was an si though. mommie and daddie bought it for him. the camaro was a 10 second car. i was brought up racing. learned how to race before i learned how to drive on the street. he didnt have a chance. i have a 92 camaro rs sittin in the garage in ohio with 2 motors and none in it. it ran 13.7s before i yanked the 350. bigger and better. my goal. 8 seconds or bust. lol.

Not all disbelieve TK
I get 26 mpg hiway in my 04 tremor
3.0, auto, x cab, 16" wheels, camper shell and a chit load of tools in it at all times.
If I took out all the extra weight I carry, and bumped my tire preasure I'm certain I could gain 1 or 2 mpg
