    Default Need help : Fuel economy problem (civic 99-00)

    Salam to all pw fellows & hope you guys are doing well

    I just bought a civic 99-00 vti auto,it was running on cng by the previous owner and I dont think they would have ever converted it to petrol :p
    after buying the car I changed the plugs (NGK R),air filter,took off the cng kit and the guy set the dizzy timing back to normal after which the car got alot better and I literally could feel it...after a few days I put on a muffler and removed the cat from between but thn I started noticing my car doing only 100kms hardly for 1k petrol i.e around 6kms/l on normal driving (2500 to 3000rpm) without a.c
    The engine check light comes as the rpm goes above 3k...
    I hav heard about injector cleaning,throttle body cleaning and replacing the fuel filter would improve the situation so if you guys can help me on this matter or tell me where is this injector cleaning done it would be great or should I take the car to honda

    throtle body clean up can be done by any mechanic who works on efi cars. else take to honda pit stop. but i recommend diagnosis of engine check light first from honda pit stop or 3s dealers. if a sensor is faulty, u might need replacement.
