    Default City '09 A/T: Alarming fuel mileage

    Guys I recently got my City's ('09 A/T) fuel pump replaced. Mileage is not going 8kms/ltr upwards.

    Before it was 10-11kms/ltr.

    I got all fluids along with oil and filters changed, 4months ago.

    1- After the fuel pump replacement, do I need to take my car to Honda for an electric tune-up etc?
    2- I really dont think that changing fluids/filters would solve the problem but I'll give it a shot again. Please recommend a 'specific' brand and variant of engine oil for my car
    3- Is there a possibility that the spark plugs that I got replaced last time were faulty? (As a mechanic bought it for me, so I am not too sure if they were not already used ones or refurbished). Please recommend 'specific brand of plugs and the variant'
    4- I have a very hot girlfriend, is there a possibility that the engine gets very hot too when she sits my car and eventually burning more fuel than average?

    Thanks

    Why did you get the fuel pump replaced? That's not very usual for a 5 year old car.
    What did you replace it with?

    As far as the so called hot girl is concerned, grow up.

    Lol @ hot girl... maybe your testosterone kicks in, you press the gas pedal too much and thats why you get bad average. Try driving around with some other girl.

    Since you already replaced 1, 2, 3. So why not replace 4 :p. Maybe it will solve the issue.

    Use of AC during (extended) idling also worsens the fuel average, so does over-weight people onboard.

    Do one thing, instead of driving with a girl, drive with a guy, it might help,
    btw if im with a girl i slow down the vehicle to enjoy max, but if i have to make a scene somewhere, i become a F1 racer
    As far as avg is concerned bro control your smaller bro and tell me which grade oil have u used??
