Which explains your superior fuel average - iVtec is even bigger on the economy factor than the Vtec - And more importantly, the accord doesn't have CVT transmission either - It's the trademark Honda [prosmatec/automatic] shift technology -
I've got a Lancer 1.6 [CVT] and the average pretty much sucks as compared to the Civic 1.6 -
Like someone else here said though, a majority of JDM cars DO tend to have this issue, especially those that are built to provide a significantly superior driving experience -
And @ the poster: On a serious note, I know it's kinda ridiculous, but I've seen [1800cc] Premio owners who have installed CNG and are quite satisfied with the performance... The fact that they even considered CNG obviously means they faced the same consumption issues.
