This is how to get 33 MPG from your RDX

I consistently get 33 MPG from my base RDX on highway by going 70 MPH on cruise. Additionally, I
  • use full synthetic 0W20 Mobil1 oil every 5K miles,
  • make sure the air filter is clean
  • check the tire pressure and put them on 34 psi when cold
  • use Techron fuel injector cleaner every 3K miles

Thanks for the great tip on getting awesome gas mileage!


Questions:
1) Does switching to an all synthetic motor oil void the factory warranty?
2) What grade of gasoline are you using (reg., mid, premium)?

Thanks...
