Is that a V-6 or four-cylinder EX?
www.fueleconomy.gov will give you some idea of how your
car's mileage is doing relative to a benchmark 96 Accord EX.
If your car is a V-6, 19.5 mpg looks pretty good. If not,

improve your mileage.
With a car one has bought used only recently, I think it
very prudent to put in a couple hundred dollars more for
basic tune-up items (as listed at the link right above), to
ensure it runs a long time, and to sort of establish a
starting point for your maintenance routine.
By any chance did you learn when the timing belt had last
been changed? That shouldn't affect MPG, but it's important
to know to ensure the timing belt doesn't break on you.
i get around 28 mpg mainly hwy 99 accord 4cyl
150K miles.... I commute about 120 miles a day and it seems
to get about the same milage on the hwy if I drive 75 or 85...so
guess what my choice is :)
I don't think 19.5 is to far off on city driving fo this car
