yar i have owned civics since 2002. pehlay 2002 the aub 2009 hai.
the thing is that pehlay 2 tanks to friends n family ki try's aur waisay car ki khushi main thora ziada accelerator dabanay ki waja sai farak hota hai.
with usage their mileage gets better.
First difference comes after 5000kms.
Second difference comes after 10000kms.
After 20000kms there wont be any change in mileage. it will keep on running with a steady mileage.
steps that i found very good for this purpose:
- dont push it hard when starting from a stand still. accelerate gently.
- keep you car at a steady speed with light or no throttle input. i believe 60-70km/h would be enough for city driving. light accelerator
- put the car in neutral at signals and when you are approaching a stop and you know accelerator input wont change the fact that you have to stop.
- you may also use 25% hi-octane in a full tank as fuel quality in Pakistan sux.
