Turbo and Gas Mileage

Ok, I know there are a lot of variables to this question. But I want to know what kind of gas mileage people get from their D series turbo set-up.

If you can I would specifically like to know what kind of mileage people are getting from LS – Turbo set ups as well

Why do I ask…because I can afford to do it, but can I afford to drive it…

400 hwy, about 300 city - but the car is not tuned yet. mileage should be the same as stock when the car is well tuned (given that you drive it like stock)

not to bad at all. Im thinking of just turboing my D, because its really not in that bad of shape..and im not looking to be a badass on the roads. I just want a little kick out of my car.

haha, CTD = Cummins turbo Diesel.

But as for a civic turbo, you'll get anywhere from 200-600km's on a tank depending on how you drive it. If you don't hit boost at all, you'll get just as good as stock fuel economy. But if you boost it everytime you accelerate, you're economy's gonna suck!

depends on tuning too.

on the highway (no boost) i pullled down better mileage then stock.

but avg daily driving with some boost runs, if tuned properly youll see stock like figures.

He's 100% right, tuning will make or break your performance and gas mileage.

for the record there is a civic turbo diesel in europe

"And it wasn’t just the hybrid faction being fast and loose with the facts. Both petrol and diesel powered cars were being economical with the truth, but not the fuel.

Cars which failed to live up to manufacturers claims by more than 20 per cent included the BMW 330D, Audi A2, Honda Jazz, Mercedes A class, and the Ford Mondeo 1.8 LX. Failures by more than 25 per cent included the Peugeot 307, Nissan Primera, and Honda Civic CTD. The Renault Clio 1.5dCi, and the Renault Espace 2.2 dsl failed by more than 30 per cent.
