    Default Terrible petrol average of Civic 1.8

    Dear All,
    I own a 2008 Honda Civic 1.8 Prosmatec. The car is now driven 26,000KM. Since about 4 months, I have noted that the average I get per tank of fuel has been quite low as compared to when the car was new and also as compared to my 2001 Corolla (1.6). On 36 liters of fuel (Rs. 2500), I got only 350km which is almost 10km per liter. I have gotten previous readings which were about 310-320km. My Corolla on the other hand gets 450km on the same quantity of fuel.

    I am a daily commuter from Pindi to Islamabad which means that I use Kashmir highway and there is not stop and go traffic. Also, I have not been pushing the throttle at all recently. All my shifts are from 2500-3000k rpm.

    I am wondering why I am facing this problem and if other owners of this car are also facing such problems. It has come to my attention that one reason this might happen is due to a blocked catalytic converter. Does removing it solve this problem and save money at the pump? Also, some people say that this new civic is meant to be driven on hi-octane (which is regular petrol in foreign countries).

    I will highly appreciate if some members who actually own this vehicle can share their experiences. Thanks.

    Inside city, donnot expect more then 10km. On the high way 13-14 is achievable if your car is tuned/maintained properly.

    I think your mileage is good enough.
    If you felt a drastic effect on it then visit Honda, it might be time to get ur CAT removed.
    However there has been quite a few reports here on PW, that after getting CAT removed the engine didn't preform as well and/or gave even lesser mileage. Contact Honda and see what they say.

    Civic is not meant to be driven on hi octane but due to the impure super its much better to use hi octane or atleast a decent mixture of it.

    I think 9 - 10kmpl is ok in city and 12kmpl is good on highways (AC on). This is my experience with new Civic. I was also worried in the beginning but every experienced Civic 1.8 owner stated the same thing!!! So live with it bro! Or change back to Toota Kharoola!! (just kiddin!)

    Well my friends have this new civic and they get 7-8 km/litre maximum within city (daily commute between office and home). So your average is good.

    Well for manual gear its almost normal.... those who are saying they get to 7-8 km/liter is for automatic/prosmatic not manual
    @owner you cannot get same mileage from 1.6 liter car and 1.8 liter car ....heavy engines waste fuel at lower speeds .. i think your mileage is good ...However do check you air filter and also this can be if you have changed the tire size or rim size .....and air pressure in tires (too low)

    You are not going to get great difference from 1.8 liter corolla it will give u similar average if u wana save on fuel buy 1300cc car.
    i have altis (auto) 2009 i know its average very well its around 7 to 9km/lire in city with a/c depanding upon traffic . Manual cars do almost 1 to 2 km extra per liter ( this difference is in city only, on highway they perform almost same ).So you better stick to ur car if the only reason is fuel consumption

    Guys just to fill you in, I bought my car in 08 and used it for the 1st 1000 kms on super. After a while I realized there was something funny about its performance and since then have reverted to Hi-octane. The car is not used much and has clocked 18k kms but the acceleration is amazing, I have driven other 1.8's used on super and found a noticeable difference in performance. Specially in idling, some cars have a slight vibration in their steering wheel which is not there in my vehicle. The difference of price in a top up is around Rs. 500/tank if you go for hi-octane which is nothing in comparison to the performance and a hassle free drive that it offers. The converter also may last a little longer which is another plus.

    One thing worth mentioning is the millage, I get around 11 within city and around 15 on the motorway on speeds ranging b/w 130 to 140 kms.

    you mean Auto Altis can give 11 in city?? I wonder if it was rebadged XLi. As for highway, if one considers 13km/l as bad on highway then he doesnt deserves to keep a 1.8. He should opt for Vitz or Cultus if he is soo concerned about fuel average. Why buy a 2 million rs car.
