Default How big is my gas tank?

I have a 99 DX hatch..
I filled up my tank last week with $36 and I wanted to calculate my MPG. My car is 5sp. and only an intake as a motor mod.
I got 290 miles to the tank with some highway some street miles. Is that good or bad??

The car sat for 2 years and was never moved. Since I bought it I only changed the oil.
Anything else you guys recommend I should change to increase the MPG?

I fill my gsr 4 door, a 5th gen dx w/ a gsr swap and Ls tran up. Hold about 9 gallons b/c I hit a rock in the rear of the tank, and I get 360 miles per tank highway miles, and about 300-320 street. It costs me about $30 to fill it up with premium.

Hey DarkCreep you didn't get 24.36 because you didn't run your tank dry, so you have to recalculate your mileage. Go fill it up, reset your odometer and next time you fill up, record the mileage and divide it by how much you filled up with. Also do not pump more gas into your tank when the pump stops, doing that throws off you mileage calculations a bit.

24mpg for a stock Civic is bad, if your car is running alright you should get at least 28mpg.

it costs me about $33 to fill up on regular and thats after driving a few miles with the gas light on. i average about 350 miles per tank. and i only have an intake. and that includes me accelerating hard and going WOT every once in a while. so 290 is definatly bad.

OMG you guys are soo f***ing lucky.

In Canada gas is around $1.25/litre for regular..I have no idea how much it is in gallons but it's alot more expensive.

91 octane I pay almost $36 for 27 litres.. our tanks are sapose to hold almost 40 litres...
