That sound a good to me. My 2002 CVT (when I had it) loved 2800-3100RPM at 70mph. Depending on terrain.
Thanks for the confirmation. Much appreciated.

I'm getting about 5 litres / 100 km which works out to about 47mpg. IMA is still in, but no-assisting almost the whole time while driving. It's winter, I'm using Civic VX rims and winter tires. I have an upper-cat heat shield, I cleaned out the EGR, did a transmission fluid flush, and I have a KLR3CYL underbelly panel. I still need indexed spark plugs. My driving is mostly city driving, weather is averaging just below freezing. I do get lean burn, but sometimes it's difficult to keep speed up. The aluminum panel has helped considerably, so does making sure the tires are pressurized properly.

Is your tire diameter same as original oem tires? If you have taller tires, the mpg would be better than gauge shows. Can you check your speedo to gps or road mileage signs?
