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.
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.

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.
this car is fitted with a computer controlled engine/gearbox it will try to make you drive as economically as poss, if you let it,Try this,without using the gas padal let the car accelerate all the way to top gear on its own then from stop use 1/3rd of gas pedal upto top gear, try not to assist acceleration let it do its own thing.if you can drive like this all the time gas mileage will be considerably higher.it is made this way because makers have been told to reduce power/gas consumption in all cars....of course you can use kickdown but watch your fuel guage....
transmission slipping dragging brakes.timing off worn timing belt .bad spark plugs + wires +coil.defected valves and worn cam shaft.use scanner to check oxygen sensor. run engine 5 minutes look at scanner . should read closed loop . if read open loop replace oxygen sensor.
a low cylinder will cause a reduction in fuel economy. also in the winter months many states oxygenate thier fuel, it helps with emmisions but reduces economy. higher octane fuel usually has less feul economy, drop to the mid grade
A Honda Accord is a full size car/heavy and therefore would have high gas consumption, probably around 8~10 Km/L city driving. Highway would roughly be 10~12 depending on your driving habits.
A full tune-up of course would help which may include but not be limited to change of sparkplugs, adding car/injector cleaner to the tank, checking/replacing the air cleaner, double checking/cleaning/replacing the MAF (if it has got one).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
