Mine currently has 173k on the clock and drives like a car with a lot less under it... Just finished a 600 mile round trip last week and got 54mpg out of an EX Tourer on the return journey, the first leg was a lot of stop start, town and country roads and traffic and only got me 44mpg... Whilst the return was 60% motorway, 35% major A roads and dual carriageways, and the first few miles and the last few miles were minor A and B roads. Average speed on the return journey after 274 miles in 4hrs 20 mins... works out to roughly 65mph, whilst the first leg was 314 miles in 2 legs (147m and 167m) in a little short of 5hrs 45 mins... traffic was heavier, town driving and so forth... But still averaged 54mph... Because once I hit the major roads and motorway on the last leg I got on with it and drove to arrive on time rather than to get the best mpg's... Didn't have that to worry about on the return leg.

Which should I start with.
09 IDTEC Tourer 289k DPF removed on 125k by Fahad.
10 GT EX AUTO Saloon 244k DPF Removed on 90k by Fahad.
I sold my 1st Honda to Fahads brother yrs ago with well over 250k on.
So with a grand total off over 3/4 off a million miles with the 3 accords I've owned and still going strong

DPF removal is a very dodgy area now, and you'd have to refit it for every MOT.. and if you get stopped and they find it's removed... large fines, cancelled insurance and so forth... They've really tightened up the rules because to many people were removing them and spewing out high levels of pollution.
