    Default My Honda Civic 1998 Automatic - Low Fuel Efficiency :(

    Hi There!

    I have recently bought a 1998 Honda Civic EXi Automatic. The drive is excellent but giving me quite a rough time regarding fuel efficiency... Just giving me 5 ~7 KM/Litre mileage...

    I took it to the mechanic for routine CHECKUP
    the plugs were ok. No oil or petrol stains
    air cleaner was ok
    Air pressure in tires is standard
    Silencer is clear and not giving any smell of "KATCHA DHOWAN"

    So the last words of the experts were the car is ok... fuel average is ok... you must be mistaken regarding low mileage... So I once again filled my tank with 40litres fuel and it only gave me 229KM

    Any suggestions or advice from you guys???

    Have you cleaned the throttle body? What is your driving style? Do you drive with a light foot?
    What is the tires size in your car?
