So I went from a 320WHP Civic to this... and I'M NOT LOOKING BACK!!!

How I drive:

Flat Ground: Pulse & Engine Off Glide. Highway: 60mph down to 50mph (45mph when I can) Around Town: Speed limit down to 5/10 under the speed limit.

Uphills: Pulse and Glide unless it takes more than 70% throttle then I'll drive steady throttle. I'll try to hit my maximum pulse just over the top of the hill at the beginning of the descent.

Downhills: DFCO or EOC when possible. Or Pulse and Engine-Off Glide to with the attempt to hit my "Goal minimum speed" at the bottom of the hill/descent.

Stoplights: Shut off when anticipating to idle longer than 15 seconds.

Planned Modifications
I'd love some MPG Fuel monitoring device but I'm running a OBD-0 DPFI
-How do I monitor 2 different injectors that pulse at 2 different rates?
