It is. Where I wrote (gvwr - payload capacity), I intended
that to read "gvwr minus payload capacity." I took gvwr
numbers coming from the door jamb sticker and payload
capacity coming from the tire inflation sticker. Admittedly

Also, I checked some numbers this weekend on the Honda: the
2400# number was for an '87 Accord DX, no A/C. The LX and LXi
models were probably closer to 2600# what with standard A/C,
moon roof, etc. so... probably closer to 22#/hp for the LXi.
(The DX and LX had lower output--I think about 105 bhp)
