The initial questions I would have are can you see where the petrol is coming from, did it sit for a while before you got it, have you had any recent maintenance? Im not completely familiar with your model but I know that you have a carburetor. And im going to say that the gas is gravity fed, which means the gas tank is above the carb and it has a hose conecting the two. Start at the gas tank and check the hose for cracks, tears, and/or tight connection at the fittings. If thats all good ( from what you have said its more than likely ok )then move to the carburetor. You are going to want to take the carb off to do this so if you have a fuel shut off valve turn that off, if not grab a pair of vise grips and clamp the hose but take some old rubber or some thick cloth and wrap it around where you clamp because vice grips have a habit of putting holes and rips in the hose if clamped to tight. Be careful not to tip the carb over as there will still be gas in it. Either work in a metal pan or there will be a drain bolt on the bottom. The second one is better. Now if you flip it over after emptying the bowl you will find three to four screws. Take them out and open the bowl it might take a couple taps from the handle of your screwdriver to get it loose. It is a good idea to replace the gasket. Now there will be a float held on by a small pin. When you pull that pin out pull the float straight out carefully because the part you need is loosely connected to that. Make sure your working over a tray beacuse it might fall off. If it didnt slide it off and sit it to the side. Now hold the float up to a light and check to make sure there is no fluid in the float. If there is thats your problem. If not pick the piece up that was connected ( this is your float needle). There will be a point on one side. This point opens and shuts the gas port. There will typically be a wear ring around the piont. This ring is prohibiting the float needle from closing. This is more than likely your problem. Meticulously clean the inside of the carburetor because the only other reason for this to happen is that the float needle is being obstructed by dirt or old gas. Once everything is clean and the part that need replaced are replaced you should have no more problems. Its alot easier than it sounds. Good luck and I hope this helps.

How to get better millage on activa 2011 model

In this article: Specifications of New Honda Activa says that the millage is about 52kmpl, but this data is without full throtle, stable velocity, no braking, under ideal conditions. Don't worry if you get millage between 40-47kmpl with normal conditions.
If you want to improve it, don´t do big brakes, work with the throtle slow, and try to keep the velocity in a reasonable range.

Honda cbr 400rr run sout of fuel in fuel lien but have petrol in the tank.its not set on reserve. tank was half full when it happened. happpenrd a few times now. When bike stops in ride and check filt

Sounds like you have trash in your tank or line. I've seen this happen with atv's even though you believe all your fuel going in is clean, stuff can still get in unknowingly to you. I've seen a floating honey bee in a cars fuel tank cause all kinds of problems like that. Owner spent countless hours and dollars replacing sensors, solenoids, and come to find out the dead bee would stay afloat normally, but when the fuel pump pulled it into the screen, the fuel flow would either be minimal or totally stop it all together. Pull that fuel line off and turn your petcock valve on and off to see if fuel comes out good or partially. Your bike may be getting fuel fine during low speed and idle, but upon demand when more fuel is needed to accelerate, the flow is restricted somewhere and it starves the carbs. Hope this helps.

We should fill honda activa tank with mobile oil or without mobile oil

I i am not wrong you are asking about adding oil to the petrol tank. you should not add oil in petrol tank for any 4 stroke engines yours is 4 stroke. engine oil will act as a lubricant to the piston.No need to add oil with petrol for Honda Activa.

I need to drain my Honda Activa petrol tank as I need to transport it to Bangalore. How do I do this.

Shut off valve at the bottom of tank. remove fuel line from carburetor and point it into an approved fuel container. Open fuel valve and drain tank. If you have a reserve setting on your valve, turn it to that to get all the fuel out. Then, look the the bowl of your carburetor. At the bottom there is a small drain line. Above that drain line is a slotted screw. Point that drain line into a container and turn the screw left to drain the fuel out of the carburetor bowl. Retighten the screw after it drains. Place your fuel tank valve to off.

I hav got oil in my petrol tank how should i get it cleaned its affecting my bike performance and also misfires sumtimes

Flushing the tank with gasoline should solve the problem. Remove the tank and empty the existing gas. Close the petrol valve, fill with about 1/4 tank, slosh about and drain. You may also need to flush the carburetor and replace the spark plug. With rust build-up in the tank, or a very stubborn problem, you may need to flush the tank with Muriatic Acid.
