I have a 2000 Accord EX (4dr) automatic w/ 88000 miles on it. A few
months ago, it was giving me around 23/24 mpg. I went out of the
country and the car was sitting there for 6 months. After I got back,
it was still giving me 23/24 for a month or two, but during the last
3-4 fills, its only been giving me 20 mpg.
My driving habits haven't changed apart from the fact that all my
driving is pretty much city around a 7-8 mile radius. Would that have
something to do with it?
I went to the dealer and they couldn't come up with anything. All they
said was to do a consumption test, which is a pretty non-technical way
to figure out the current gas mileage.
Any comments on what might be causing this? I did all the normal
stuff like check tire pressure, and dont accelerate too quickly from
lights... i am a pretty "good" driver when it comes to that..
any help would be appreciated.
