Just curious what kind of mileage those of you with swaps are getting, be it forced induction, built all-motor, or just a bigger and better engine.

My B16 swap has been returning roughly 28 mpg, with a low of 25 on one tank and high of 33 on another. I'm definitely in it more than I should be, so there's certainly potential for better economy.

B16 & J1, 24-26mpg, pizza delivery 4 nights a week. I believe I should be getting better though.
My mini-me car was getting 26-30 doing the same.

25-30 mpg around town i would say is going to be avg for a 1.6l.
Really?I know a few people who get WAY better than me with theirs, like 35+.
There's still stuff I need to work on with this car though.

Gearing (or the gearing you drive around in) plays a big role. Tire sizes, RPM, injector sizes and duty cycles, etc.
I get around 35-37 average city/highway driving nicely with the K20...that is a lot 6th gear/light load driving.
I bet you could cut that in half once it dips into iVTEC 8)

Well i beleive the estimated fuel rating of a stock Crx Si is 28/33, so i would imagine that the b16 would be somewhere around there as well, but not much higher.
