Whatever MPG you are seeing on your dash is usually 2-3 mpg high.

Curious as to how the '16 Civic drove, especially compared to the CT? I have been reading good reviews about it. I would get the manual shifter, just can't beat the fun of shifting manually.

Congrats on the high miles, good to know that it has given you great reliability. Does Lexus give milestone badges? When my Volvo achieved 200,000 miles, they sent me a metal badge.
