    A couple of notes.

    Added a new stat for most used fuel. So far 93 octane, by far.

    I've noticed a few recent surveys are leaving out the tuning experience notes. If possible, make sure you include that because it's really helpful. Thanks.

    My family has been going to Sound innovations since I can remember. Waiting for the spring to install new intercooler then I'll probably be headed your way. :)

    Vehicle: 2018 Civic Si Sedan

    Total tuned time: 10 months

    Total tuned mileage: 15,000+ miles

    Tuning device(s) used: KTuner V2

    Tunes used: TSP Stage 1 for ~5k miles; Current: TSP Stage 2/FlexFuel

    Fuel used: Speedway 93 and E85 (combined, never exceeding E40) and Kroger 93

    Additional engine mods: PRL Catless downpipe, FX350 w/ Aluminum SMF, 27Won RMM

    Problems/issues: One spark plug failed recently, engine, trans, etc. noises, clutch slipping with TSP Stage 1

    Driving style:
    Quicker acceleration than most but nothing crazy, an occasional 3rd gear pull. Occasional spirited driving with friends, but generally pretty normal.

    Tuning experience notes: First car I've modified/tuned. Started as a noob afraid of changing my oil. My mechanic friends helped me through my modding journey to the point where I'm comfortable working on my car on my own. I haven't the slightest idea how to write a custom tune, but I do my best to understand how each part is going to effect my engine. Recently started monitoring more "advanced" aspects of my engine - STFT, LTFT, AFR, etc.
