National Geographic : 1978 Aug
Our lowest EPA mileage estimate was received by the Civic 1200 with 2-speed manually-selected Hondamatic trans mission: 30 mpg highway, 23 mpg city. All estimates are lower for California and high altitude areas. Also, the Civic 1200 is not available in California or in high altitude areas. Although we're happy to tell you about our 1978 EPA mileage figures, we want to be realistic about them. So please keep in mind that EPA estimates are the result of laboratory tests and are offered only as a means of comparison. When you drive in actual traffic on real streets and highways, your mileage might not be as high. Of course, in addition to how and where you drive, your mileage is affected by such things as your car's condition and optional equipment. Still and all, a Honda makes the neighborhood service station UNA a nice place to visit. You get your choice of gas pumps when you drive in. And very good mileage after you drive out. Now, how could we make gasoline r. any simpler than that? We make it simple.
