...I own a 99 prelude (5sp) and 98 2dr accord v6. The lude is my car show and the accord is the beater. I was really shocked to find out that my accord MPG wise ran circles around my lude. I often make a 400 mile trip to Stillwater,Ok to see my GF and I can go about 420 miles b/4 I have to fill up the lude. But the accord (no joke) was square dead in the middle of half a tank and 1/4 a tank, after 425 miles. (just food for thought)
But to answer your question, I'd rather drive my lude any day!
