    Default Honda civic 06 fuel consumption problem

    Aoa dear members!
    I've recently bought a 06 civic vti oreal prosmatec which has done 85k kilometers and had CNG installed with an advancer.
    I've removed the CNG cylinder (the kit still in place), and replaced spark plugs with new ones, and changed the air filter, and checked the air intake for blockages, but my car is still giving me an avg of 8 to 9 kmpl without AC.
    From what I have heard its consuming a lot of petrol.
    Kindly suggest me what to do to improve my car's fuel avg. I am being careful with my driving.
    I was thinking to get it tuned. Any good suggestions?

    Acceleration:
    Your gear is to get into higher gears as soon as possible. Lift off the accelerator pedal when you reach the minimum shift speed. This way the car will shift quicker, spending less time in the fuel consuming lower gears. The minimum speeds are: 2nd at 10 km/h+, 3rd at 32 km/h+, and 4th at 52 km/h+.

    Cruising:
    Your goal is to maintain torque-converter lockup. There are 3 modes for the operation of the torque converter:

    1-fully fluid, AKA slushbox mode. For the same gear and speed combination, the RPM will vary according to throttle input. All gears use this mode.

    2-semi-lockup mode. The RPM will drop around 200-300 revs ( going from 1700 to 1500 for example), for the same gearing and speed combination. Its not full lock up mode, however, as you can see when you lift from the accelerator. The RPM will drop a further 200-300 revs, which shows that the TC wasn't fully locked up.

    This mode is only noticeable in 3rd and 4th gear; I couldn't actively use it in 1st and 2nd. That's why it is important to get to at least 3rd ASAP.

    3-full lock up - the transmission now behaves like a manual transmission. The input and output shaft are spinning at the same speed; there are no parasitic losses to the transmission. Most of the advantages of MT's are lost at this point. This mode is only available in 4th, at speeds over 70.

    Even at speeds over 70, the car may sometimes go out of lock up, like when going up an incline. I counter this by building my speed up before hand, and using a light throttle pressure for the climb. Even then, it periodically goes out of lock up. I just let up on the accelerator for a second and press it back; this locks up the transmission again. In general, you don't want to be going less than 75 km/h on GT road/ m-ways. It is actually better for fuel economy to speed up a little (on automatics). Generally, 80-100 km/h is good for fuel economy.
    Thankyou for the detailed reply lekin meri baat ka bhe yehi matlab tha. At 2k rpm my civic shifts gears at minimum shift speed

    You are right, if you use light throttle, it shifts at 2k.
    If you use a heavier foot, like I do, it will go between 2.2k to 2.4k before upshifting at the same speed. This scenario is actually better for fuel economy, since you reduce pumping losses.
