    Pump your tires up, study

    Pump your tires up, study the hypermiling techniques at cleanmpg.com and listen to MSantos!

    The mileage on the hch will improve steadily over the first couple of thousand miles. Don't get too hung up on the bars and make sure to plan your trips. hch hates 1 mile trips and stop and go.

    Congrats, great car.

    42 PSI unless you have a

    42 PSI unless you have a 2003-2005 then 45PSI. Be sure someone did not put non factory original tires on your vehicle if it is an old one. I ordered mine from tirerack.com and ask for the MIJ ones.
    I put Michelins on my 2003 and had to take them off. Mileage went down 6 miles per gallon. Use that Mobil one oil 0w20 and change your air filter as well as put in a can of fuel injector cleaner.
    Sorry, I did not see what year you have.
