    @ExtraSlow 9.1? At least according to my dash, around the city I am getting 6.5-7L/100km, and on highway 7.1ish, or if it's really flat I've even gotten it down to 6.

    You get worse on the highway? That's pretty unusual. And I know my mileage could be a lot better, but I warm the car up for a long time in the winter because my precious little babies can't be chilly on the way to school. My trips are almost all under 5km, most under 1km. My point was that I have a "worst case scenario" and I STILL get 9.1, which is pretty decent.

    Ah yes I understand what you are saying. As far as highway goes, it just depends if it's lots of uphill or not.

    The fit really is a great car but it's rubbish on the highway. Swap it for a 66 Accord and get 3x power + 3x comfort at the same fuel economy..

    That's why I just say I have a 4" dick and lift weights to make up for it.

    Installed a new stereo a while back. It matches the oem cluster quite well in my opinion

    Thanks for following along. About to order a motor out of Kamloops, and Hasport is going to do my swap harness. Woo!

    I claybar-ed, polished, and waxed the car. Then of course got a fresh coat of mud on the tires courtesy of my back alley.

    Clay bar and wax? My car hasn't seen either, possibly ever. Of course it's both dented to shit from hail as well as chipped to shit from rocks. Would be a waste to clay bar that. I just figure its like speed holes.

    Haha, speed holes! I've actually heard of some Fit guys cutting off the bottom half of the rear bumper to save weight and reduce drag...might be a bit excessive. This is my first time ever using a clay bar or polish, on any car actually. Just had tonnes of it sitting around from my brother and decided to use it up. Honestly it's way too much work, even with a polisher.

    And no, no swap yet. I'm having some real troubles sourcing a 09-14 manual tranny TSX for it's main harness and charge harness. I would require the same from a 2009-2013 Fit. Where are all the wrecked ones? I've called so many junkers and no one seems to have the second gen Fit. If I can't find anything in the coming week, I think I'm going to have to source some online and have them shipped directly to Hasport.

    Edit: I found one manual 09-14 TSX parts car but they won't sell the harnesses until they sell the motor

    Tied into the systems of all wreckers across N/A. Fantastic website for sourcing parts

    Thanks! Honestly it's been a difficult car to source parts and information for. Definitely not a popular car for modifications.
