Question about 2005 Honda Civic

1 Answer

High fuel consumption

My Honda Civic 2005 1.5 LXi automatic has bad gas mileage - about 200 KM per full tank. Three months back I was getting 500 KM per full tank. I did a full service at an authorized Honda dealer three months back. What could be the cause of it?


Mileage drop started after the servicing at the dealer. I took the car back to dealer but they told technically the car is perfect. Mileage drop may be due to peak summer -50 degree centigrade in Dubai.

I drive my car in the city only. I try to drive it as economically as possible and use 95 octane gas.


Thanks Roshan

    I recently switched from using regular unleaded to premium. For the first few tanks full the gas mileage was dramatically better-about 90 miles more on a tank of gas-highway miles. Then it seemed that I was getting much less-less even than when I was using regular unleaded. I haven't checked the wheel alignment or filters or timing yet, but that's my next step.

    Before I change the airfilter I can only drive 370km per tank, now I can drive around 430km per tank. Most driving in city condition. It seems still on high side. What is the problem? Please advice.

    I'm getting 335 km per tank. My gas range shows 600 km to the tank but I'm getting about half of what is showing. Is this typical?

Check the following things: air filter, wheel alignment, and timing belt, all of them if not serviced on time can affect your fuel consumption. I do not think its the heat because I drive my car in Phoenix AZ with temperatures comparable to Dubai and I still get 500+ km/tank.

Good Luck,

How many kilometer per liter for fuel consumptin


Hi, the CRV typically gets 9.5 litres per 100 Km, the gas tank on a CRV is 58L. You should be able to go about 610km on a single tank, but that is a FULL tank to EMPTY. I'd suggest filling up every 500-550km to be safe.

It just depends on your tank size. You probably get about 15 -18 miles per gallon. 13 gallon tank would be around 200 miles. 15 gallon tank around 232 miles.

I have to refill the reserve tank every 7 days after 100 km of driving- no leaks on the floor of the garage. I has 420,000 km. on the engine.


You might have a bad head gasket.Check oil dipstick to see if your oil is milky and check your exhaust.Is it blowing white smoke more than normal.With this mileage it is probably your gasket.

Automatic Honda civic wont reverse


take it back. They missed something. You should have a warranty on the work. Of course that does have limits which include both mileage driven and months since the vehicle was released to you. I am guessing you did not do the work since your saying you had it done. There really isn't much you can do other than have it taken apart and checked. So long as your TCM (transmission control module is not bad= computer for transmission)

Gas light stays on even when tank is full


the float sensor attahced to your fuel pump sounds as though it is not working properly. Usually this occurs when the car rides on E many times and becomes damaged. depending on the model it may be necessary to replaced the sensor assembly or if it is the complete unit the whole fuel pump.

Also, depending on your driving habits your car can use more gas if your are driving in traffic (stop and go). Average out your fuel mileage by filling up a few times and keeping a log of the gas consumed. Do this by reseting the trip meter when you fill up and when you fill up again divide the total mileage on your trip meter by the amount of gas you used by getting the amount of gallons it took to fill up again. ex. 360miles divided by 10gals = 36 miles per gallon.

note. make sure you check your air filter (is it clean?) and tire pressure (32psi) these can be contributing factors to poor gas mileage

Jeep liberty gas mileage


to increase gas mileage make sure you keep on top of tire air pressure you can also have your tires filled with nitrogen instead of air also a K&N air filter does wonders and is good for lifetime worth every penny. another smart move is to use a fuel system cleaner regularly Lucas makes great products for this try local parts store.
