Does the E have one of Hondas Lean Burn Engines? I've heard the Civic has a lean burn phase and was wondering if the E has something similar?
Thanks

I wouldn't consider it to be a lean burn engine the stock afr in closed loop hovers between 14.5-15.3. in a FI setup, they seem to like 12.5-11.8, whereas some other manufacturers run much richer.

Lean burn engines that I'm aware of run really lean (18:1 or higher)

No, the K24 setup in the E is not lean-burn. The Civic has not been "lean burn" since 2005, although the 1.3L in the current Civic Hybrid has a lean-burn mode.
