Gas consumption is ourageous

first and easiest steps, replace air filter and fuel filter.

next step, watch your driving. slow down, and don't always slam the throttle. Accelerate at a decent pace, not turtle but not rabbit! lol

My odyssey has 212000 miles. It had majoe

Generally gasoline is reformulated in the fall until mid-winter and it is not uncommon to notice a significant drop in mileage. If the vehicle has been maintained and has not had a problem recently, and is not displaying other symptoms - like smoking or performance problems - the best thing to do is wait till spring and see if it picks up again. You may even notice a placard on gas pumps saying gas is reformulated during winter months.
