    Default Civic 7th gen prismatic mileage

    How can I increase its mileage?

    It is good on cng (160 to 188 km on 60 litre cylinder)
    but on petrol it gives only 10.5 km/l in local
    And 11.5 km/l on motorway.

    I am getting same cng mileage from my 02' exi manual. Max is 196.
    On petrol it's 12 to 12.5 km/l. If you are driving in city all the time then it's fine.

    CNG is good, once, i had rain on motorway and drove in average 80, you won't believe my car ran 248KMs on a full cng tang.
    The question is about Petrol. 12 is on motorway. 10.5 in local.
    Do i need to do something or keep going with it?

    Yes you can get better mileage on a VTi; if you are skilled enough your city mileage will be better than your highway mileage.

    For starters; don't warm up your car in the morning; don't let it idle for minutes before you start off on any trip, no matter how long. Just get in, drop the shifter into D, then drive off.

    Try to use the brakes as little as possible; just imagine that your car has no brakes. You will automatically keep a buffer between your car and the next.

    When you see a red light, release the accelerator, and do not even touch it unless you see the light turn green. If at all possible, try to not to stop at the signal; reduce your speed as low as possible and hope the light turns green before you stop. Getting a stationary car crawling wastes a ridiculous amount of fuel. This technique works best with the shifter in neutral and the engine off, but don't do that until you do more research on this subject.

    Last but not least, don't exceed the speed limit; try to go with the flow of the traffic and don't overtake (except motorcycles, taxis and old uncles driving chiyaasi Corollas).

    Using just these elementary techniques, you can get at least 13-14 km/l with A/C in the major Pakistani cities.

    Brother I never indicated that he's wrong, it's just funny to ME as I rather spend a few hundred more per tank fill than to go to such length (which might be normal for many) and compromise on time and speed, seems funny to me.

    No one is asking you to go to such lengths; the OP wants to increase his car's mileage, and I gave a suggestion. Simple as that.

    My car is doing 135km/rs.670 fill without ac in city on cng. I think it's fair enough, or someone has other thoughts.

    Op mentioned he's getting upto 180km/fill, which i think even city idsi fails to provide

    Auto transmission drivers know better how non-aggressive one gets while driving an AT. I am very good on my accelerator and brakes, never reduce unnecessary speed, never make a rough acceleration and you save a lot of fuel.
    People who don't believe my CNG mileage are right in their context, but I have this millage on 750/- Rs gas.

    For petrol, 10.5 is not good without AC. I need help in this.

    My MAP sensor is faulty, may be one of injectors/coils are also not working proper. Where should I go for diagnose and fix? (In Lahore)

    Such techniques are good, but I don't prefer hacks in computer devices, they may lead to severe damage to parts/engine itself IF we trick the ECU and make it think what is not actually happening. After all computer is always a dull machine and lacks intelligence and responsive senses.
