    A turbo charger is not a quick, easy "bolt on" you need experience to set it up to work properly as well.
    Turbos are very expensive and even if it helped with MPG which in all likelyhood it won't, it would take a hundred years to recover what you spent on it. If you are looking at it only to boost performance, yes, it will do that. On a decent unit you can realistically expect from 15 to 30 additional horsepower in the higher rpm range..

The fuel consumption will increase because of the increased horsepowers
How efficient would it be? that depends on how well the ECU will be adjusted (hondata)

3 things make an engine start : compression wich is lost slowly and seems not the case here , fuel : take off the air filter and tube leading to the intake manifold , insert 2 table spoons of fuel and with nobody face near it start the engine , if it start and died , the problem his fuel pump , fuel pump fuse , injectors or the computer circuit and finaly spark , test the sparkplugs and coils .

Increased nearly double fuel consumption


Seriously, first thing to check is you air pressure in your tires. If they are low this can cause a drastic loss of fuel efficiency. Other than that, tune it up.

Honda Civic 1.6 vtech Inspire 03 with poor fuel consumption


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....

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.

What the previous owner told you could be correct(that is 33mpg), B16A1 Vtec engine were made for power and fuel efficiency. Your clutch upgrade would not affect your fuel consumption unless you feel anything slipping during acceleration. I say you give your engine a good tune up and compare the milage again.
