Question about 1996 Honda Civic

1996 Honda Civic

Well, here's one I have that is confusing. I have a 1996 Honda Civic that is only averaging about 24 mpg. I just recently bought it, and the previous owner said he was getting 33mpg. I do not drive aggressively, maybe about 5 mph over in some cases 10. The motor is not the stock motor, but a B16A1 VTEC. The clutch is a stage 2 upgraded clutch. There are no check engine lights.

What the previous owner told you could be correct(that is 33mpg), B16A1 Vtec engine were made for power and fuel efficiency. Your clutch upgrade would not affect your fuel consumption unless you feel anything slipping during acceleration. I say you give your engine a good tune up and compare the milage again.

MPG has dropped


Air filter? And any car I have ever owned with a timing belt has shown a noticeable drop-off in MPG when the belt had some miles on it. I would do what you have done but added (or at least eyeballed) the air filter. If that didn't bring it back, the timing belt was next since it doesn't take hardly any stretching to throw off the valve timing and it is critical to performance and MPG.

15 mpg 2006 honda accord I4 auto. in city driving is this normal?


Doubtful. The K&N air filter is an aftermarket part which isn't compliant with standard factory parts against which those recommended MPG are tested.

The tyre pressure sounds too high for a car that size also, it would be worth enquiring with a main dealer what the reccomended pressure is.

Also your own driving ability comes into equasion too. Heavy/constant braking can affect it, having the air con witched on affects it etc etc.

All of the above combined would make a pretty big difference to your MPG.
