Hi,

I'm currently using a b16a on a civic sr4. For rm50 worth of fuel (approx. 26 ltr) the car can go up to 320 - 330 km (until the fuel warning light on). Just to make a comparison with other b16a, is this good? in term of fuel consumption.... thx

I thought this has been posted before? But anyway with RM50, I can only clock about 300km without vtec. I guess mine is worst than yours. My car also no internal mods.

Mine is the worst, RM 75.00 can go up to 330 KMs only ( almost 80% stop - go traffic, plus plenty of full throttle runs, of course! And also about 15% of highway driving! )

I have a B16A that was imported from Kyoto early this year. RM50 worth of fuel gives app. 350-400 km via daily driving. If keep pressing the pedal when the road's clear, then... you don't want to know what kind of mileage I'm getting :_:

DOHC VTEC rules... :shades_smile:

B16A drinks fuel like a pig.. now considering that pigs don't drink fuel.. I'd say they're pretty miserly for a 1.6 litre when crusing above 100kmh.

H22A CL1 a bit better, say without vtec not open at all, the max it's RM50 can go is around 340-350km max.

...but most of the time hard to maintain la that figure. (without any vtec).

This is what I got previously before I change my flywhell to b16b ones and set my tappet (as previously it has knocking sound). That's why I wonder what had happened. The tappet has been set nicely though...
