The Accord That Doesn'T Quit

December 16, 2007 about Honda Accord

I drove my 1990 Accord EX 4dr with about 5 miles from arriving to work when the fuel light came on. I then drove 55 miles from work to within about a few miles of my home and went straight to the gas station. I calculated and it came to be 60 miles with the fuel light on. This took place during the spring in the month of May which was on a day that was 88 degrees! With a 17 gallon tank, my record was for that 471 miles on one tank of gas! However, my record is 509 miles on one tank of gas from Somerset, NJ to Boston, MA and back home with 4 people and luggage! The Accord is the car to have in a gas crisis!
