    Default Honda Civic 2005 Poor Mileage on Gasoline. Help required.

    Guys, I drive a 2005 Model Honda Civic Exi Prosmatic (Cng).
    On CNG, the mileage is Ok. Around 110-130 Km (50% Local 50% Long).

    But On Petrol, the mileage is terrible. Nowadays I am getting around 6-7 km/l max, that too with very light foot
    i.e Shift gears at around 2k rpm and stay within 85-90 km/hr.

    Can anybody guide me from where can I get its injector cleaned or get it diagnosed?

    And Please don't start about CNG at all.
    My daily travelling is 80-85 kms. Rwp to Isb
    On CNG Rs. 550 on Petrol 1100-1200 Rs. So there is simply No comparison.

    What can I do to improve the petrol mileage?
    One more thing. The Car performance is fine. Gear changes are butter smooth, and it also revs till 6.5k Rpm when maxed out. (On Petrol)

    try STP complete fuel system cleaner (silver bottle)
    check valve clearance.they should be properly adjusted when engine is cold dont let the mechanic to adjust them while engine is warm
    make sure air filter is clean.

    personally i dont like to change before 3k rpm.. in the long run not good for the engine..
    most of the hypermilers have a wrong concept.. gari ko latka ke chalatay hain..

    as far as consumption is concerned. you are getting low mileage because of the air impairment you have done to run the car on cng..
    petrol just needs more oxygen to burn efficiently..

    if you are talking about xli.. then its because of the 1300/1600 difference.. otherwise they are same..

    get the car tuned without air blockage.
    my city is tuned like that.. i dont know where the previous owner got it tuned from...
    but i get excellent mileage on petrol.. although cng mileage is just a little bit bad as compared to what other city owners are getting here.
    (i get 220 per cylinder on long route.. people have been getting 240-250)

    and if you run your car on petrol with the air blocked for a long time.. this will cause permanent harm to your engine

    cng average is good but petrol avg isnt so that effs up all the saving from it
    so i guess i should get it tuned on petrol,good avg on petrol n so so on cng would be better rather than bad avg on petrol
    i guess tunning on petrol would be just that removal of air blockage,but what to tell the ustaad ji's

    No modification with Air intake have been done for CNG. It is all stock. Air Filter is changed around 10k kms. Cleaned after every 200 kms.
    Right now, I just noticed that car is dropping RPM after getting it filled from Caltex F8. Before that, I only used shell pertol. InshAllah will top it tomorrow with a bottle of Liqui Moly fuel injection cleaner. If that didn't helped, will take injectors out and do a powered flush. Will post a DIY as well.
