Air filter and a fuel service. I'm thinking you have changed the air filter so have the fuel system cleaned. Try bgfindashop.com
I work as a tech in a dealership and we use BG Products. They have a fuel service kit that helps. Goodluck

Gas mileage depends on several factors.
Average for a 2003 model is 17 city and 27 highway.
So if you combine those numbers, you could expect an average of 22 mpg which would be 4.5 gallons in 100 miles.
The Fuel Economy of the 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe is listed as being 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Digiprog3 Odometer Correction Tool
If you want fuel economy then dump this beast and buy a nice peugeot or citreon picasso diesel manual then you will get around 30 mpg around town and anything up to 70 mpg on a run ,try paying our fuel prices and this nice typical american petrol gas burner would be delegated to the classic car sunday drive out like my jag with its 4lt engine i can only afford to take it out once a month or so on a jaguar club run around ,other than that its my ford diesel manual escort with its 0 to 60 in 15 minutes but it only uses one tank of fuel a month.
its on the fire wall yes it will help some i wouldnt expect a drastic change in fuel economy because acura dosent have a replacement schedule for fuel filters like most car companies. id check your air filter and if your check engine light is on it will seriously kill your mpg. hope this helps
Has there been any changes to your vehicle in the last few weeks that you can recall. Regular oil changes are a must. Also, check the air pressure in your tires every once in awhile. These two things are key to keeping your car running good and getting better gas mileage. Your tires will also last longer if they are at the propper PSI. Also, do you travel the same route every day or does it change. Highway driving and city driving have a big difference in the average fuel economy your vehicle is going to get.
I have the same issue of low gas mileage. My 2008 Kia Rondo with V6 (2.7Lt) gets 20-21 mpg in average. Even for highway mileage, it is around 21-22mpg. Very poor gas mileage. Disappointed. I hope it would improve in the future.
Are you using the correct grade of fuel. Manufacturers claim that a car will do 28 to the gallon. This is done under ideal conditions at a constant speed on a rolling road. Wind, hills, overtaking and tire pressures will decrease fuel mileage. Your car is ok. Don`t expect much more unless you want to drive at 56mph good luck
There are a few factors that affects fuel mileage,your vehicle is still pretty New and all emission related components should still be functioning at the peak performance. here is a check list of other items that may will affect fuel economy, from this list you will be able to determine what may be affecting yours.
LOW TIRE PRESSURE or bigger tire size.
VEHICLE IN NEED OF MINOR TUNE-UP SPARKPLUGS+ AIR FILTER.
CHANGE IN DRIVING HABBIT(driving faster on highway) OR MORE LOCAL STREET DRIVING or carring more loads.
Brakes hanging up or not releasing completely while driving (not very usual but possible).
IF you added a rear spoiler/wing/wind deflector etc.
EPA mileage figures are estimates, and seldom does it have anything to do with the real world, My new car is rated at 19 city and 28 hiway, it gets 22 MPG max. The only thing you can do is make sure the pressure in the tires is correct and run the recommened oil, keep the car in good running order.
