Icon6 New mod....truck now gets 30+mpg

SIKE! lol, but the honda civic I just picked up tonight does.

Yeah I know a honda, but I got a good deal on the car. Just needs a little TLC to get it on the road.

1992 Honda Civic DX

The Good:
Newer used motor with under 50k miles on it(hardly broken in for a honda)
Brand new clutch/fly wheel/pilot bearing

5spd

The bad:
Needs new driverside CV half shaft
Wheels bearings might need replacing
Tires
And just a good deep cleaning.

I got it for 1500. I probably could of gotten it for less, but I was helping a friend out.

Plans for it is:
Most a DD. Might lower it some a tighten up the supsension and take it to some autox events, but I am not planning on making it fast. Just have a little fun in it. I do need to add a tach to it as this car is as base as it gets. Gonna just get me one of those small tachs to add to it. I might paint the wheels if I get bored lol.

Its polen. Its been sitting for a while. Needs a good cleaning. I mainly got it for work. Doing delivery I am driving about 50-150 miles a day depending on the shift. Also my round trip commute to see the gf is about 35-40 miles.

I get 18 in my truck, but 30+ is better and it saves the miles on my truck
