The better the engine breaths the better the mileage. Was the new computer a stock computer or performance?

30,000 mile plugs but it doesn't meen they need replacement I work for chrysler I would wait till about 50 or 60 thousand remeber just because there is not a problem doesn't meen they should not be replace at the recommened intervals. they are considered a wearable item. when you do the plug do the wires. words of advise when doing the ignition wires do ONE WIRE AT A TIME it will save u from a big headache. Good luck.

Does the speedometer work? Out might have a bad speed sensor in the rear axle. Did you have it scanned for codes?

verify good spark plugs and correct ignition timing. make sure the engine is getting to correct temp (195f) Has the mileage always been this bad? be sure the cam timing is correct.

Poor Mileage


Hello;
I would take the vehicle back to the dealer for a check. In city driving is seldom good but see what mileage you get on the open road. Stop and go kills mileage but my Pontiac G6 gets 26 in town and 39 on the freeway.
Thanks;

Check engine light sensors have been reset but don't show a reading


U will need to drive a mixture of stop and go, city low speed and freeway miles, this can take a week and 20-50 miles or so for the system to finish it's internal self testing. this is called a drive cycle test.

BAD ON GAS


You should be getting close to 360-390...depending on the type of driving you are doing. Increasing your gas mileage could be as simple as getting a fresh oil and filter job, change your air filter, change your fuel filter...and a biggie believe it or not, make sure you have the proper tire pressure. This will kill your mileage faster than anything else.

City MPG: 16-18 mpg
Combination MPG: 18-21
Highway MPG: Approximately 26 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.

it is definately time to check them. Usually every 30K is a good interval to check them. Especially if lots of city driving.
