I have a 2013 Honda Civic EX Sedan. The ECON mode, from my research and personal experience with my car, does the following: changes the shift pattern of the transmission to maximize mpg by limiting downshifts unless you "floor it", reduces the A/C compressor operation and A/C fan to conserve mpg, changes the throttle response to maximize mpg and adjusts ...

Fuel consumption is only determined by how wide open the throttle body is, which is only determined by how depressed the gas pedal is. So there is no difference in you case.

Most modern fuel-injected cars can idle for over an hour on a gallon of gas, so saving a sip of fuel just doesn't amount to much. When you use your engine to decline down a hill, your ECU recognizes that the engine is operating at an RPM higher than idle, so fuel feed is nearly cut off at the injectors - some automatics completely shut off fuel until RPM ...

I'm pretty sure it is not due to aerodynamics. It has got to do with designed optimal engine rpm. Your 1.2L car is not really designed to run best at highway speed.

Mileage of a car is based on a ton of factors but since you are concerned with a specific speed range it comes down to one thing Air resistance. Air resistance: There is very minimal difference in the air viscosity between 70 to 90 kmph but when you go more than 110 the air starts to get thick , simply put , if your car's aerodynamics are optimum to handle ...

Yes, the front wheel should spin more freely than the rear, for as you note, there is less on it to drag. As Steve says, a non-flat rotor would result in oscillation or pulsing when braking, which should be pretty obvious on a bike. You can check it for flatness using a dial gauge (or run-out gauge). My suspects would be a sticking caliper, or a failing ...

I'm a retired mechanic, I used to work on private car's and some commercial vehicles. The principal of disc brakes is the same although details might differ between car and m/cycle. Don't even attempt any brake work unless you are competent and have the right tools. You mentioned the possibility of a distorted rotor. Can you feel anything untoward when ...

Considering on this website they say you can figure out the amount of CO2 emissions per km based on the fuel mileage, I'd suggest they are saying the rate of emissions is proportional to the MPG (given their constant). This makes sense to me because there are so many carbon atoms in a gallon of gas. When burnt (correctly), the CO2 emissions are going to be ...

The Eco assist is not a placebo and it says nothing vague. It teaches you. "is a fuel efficiency INFORMATION system designed to HELP (teach) you DEVELOP (learn) and MAINTAIN ( continue to use what you learned ) a fuel-efficient driving style. The system MONITORS (gathers data) driving style, and can DISPLAY (shows you the data on the dashboard) the ...
