Remember that an engine with less power often has to work harder than an engine with more power when trying to move the same weight. So you may see no improvement in MPG. Is the F22B2 from the Accord? And if so, what is it lacking compared to the Ody motor, about 10 hp at most? You may not notice any difference overall.
