Gasoline made simple. A lot of the new cars tend to be choosy when it comes to fuel. Most of them have catalytic converters, which means they are designed to accept nothing but unleaded gas. Hondas are different. All our new cars-the Civic®1200, the Civic CVCC, and the Honda Accords-operate without a catalytic converter. So you can take your pick of regular or unleaded gasoline. As for premium, there is no benefit and it's a waste of money. Of course, whichever gas you use, you can go a long way on it in a Honda. Our best mileage car, the Civic CVCC 5-Speed, was rated at 47 mpg for highway driving, 37 mpg city, according to EPA estimates. 01978 American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
