    Default 8th generation Civic fan and owner club

    the 2006 generation Honda split the model into two different platforms, one primarily for the home market and North America and the other designed for the European market using a simpler rear suspension from the Honda Fit and more aggressive styling. As of 2006, a total of 16.5 million Civics had been sold worldwide, with 7.3 million of them in the United States.[5] Although the North American and the home market model differ externally, they are mechanically identical. The European model is available as a three and five-door hatchback while the Japanese/North American model is available as either sedan or coupe. Both Si and Type-R trim levels continue although the Japanese and European Type-R while sharing the same size engine are mechanically different. In the US an improved version of the Si tuned by Honda tuner Mugen is offered featuring cosmetic alterations and changes to the suspension and exhaust system. The Acura version of the Civic not only received the design change, but also saw a new nameplate, changing from the Acura EL to the Acura CSX. In Japan starting March 2006, the Honda dealership sales channels called Honda Primo, Verno, and Clio were disbanded, and combined into one retail dealership called Honda Cars.

    Mine is a 2009 Prosmatec, just clocked 123000. It's a single hand self driven well maintained car and I don't hand keys to the driver. I take a check on average every single time i fill up. My local city driving average with not much of a light foot and constant AC is 9.5-10 (touchwood) and that's what it always does. In winters it goes to around 11.

    You can downshift and accelerate if the situation calls for it.

    However try to avoid situations that require you to accelerate suddenly - learn to see obstacles well in advance. In fact, this is the most basic hypermiling technique, called Anticipatory Focus. It might be basic, but it requires a lot of practice before you develop enough finesse.

    Aside from avoiding unnecessary idling, this is the most important hypermiling technique. This is even more important than keeping your eyes on the tach, trying to keep the RPM under 2k.

    Yes that is what I've been wandering. Service history seems fine , I've bought the car recently from its first owner . Any idea what other automatic drivers have been getting.

    Have you tested the O2 sensors? Have a look at the sticky thread by @SER_GTR.

    The typical bunch as I explained a lot earlier on this thread, here's a brief repeat:
    1. Fuel filter
    2. Throttle body service
    3. Calibration and tuning
    4. Air filter
    5. Engine oil
    6. Spark plugs
    While ure at it, 7. Catalytic converter and O2 sensor should be checked as well. But if O2 sensor is at fault usually the first thing is an engine check light

    About the bolded parts: the first one should only be done from a dealership; it can mess up the car because of the DBW throttle. In fact, its an unnecessary expense.

    About the second part, from what I have read, a lazy O2 sensor (not dead) won't light up the CEL.

    Honda dealerships are controversial , used to go to khan motors but they don't seem much expert on tuning either for some odd reason.

    Just a word of advise. Get your car maintenance from Honda dealership. They know the car better than local mechanics.
    If you just got an 8th gen. Get its oil mounting checked. Honda changes it for free. Even if it has been changed previously if you contact the head office.
    They will help you out.
    If you have mileage issues try getting 1/2 or 2/3 tank of hioctane in the car.
    Try it once you will know why I said it.
