Probably a stuck injector or the timing belt was installed with the
camshaft misaligned.

I record mileage and gallons with each stop. Suddenly I
noted the day after visiting a Mobil station, why mileage
dropped from above 30 to about 20 MPG. Engine just was not
smooth. Dealer said fuel injectors were bad. I know exactly
the station that did the damage. Only helps to keep away from
that station. With injectors replaced, I immediately noticed
the smoother engine. And mileage immediately returned to
above 30 MPG. Numbers. Verify important to keep numbers and
also have those numbers for consecutive tanks.

What could be the problem on that Integra? Many which is
why we always identify good dealers so get the right answer
the first time (and yes I also have identified at least one
dealer who I don't trust - watched them blame the woman rather
than fix their installed and leaking oil filter).

IOW probably many things. But those numbers will tell when
the problem happened and when it is fixed.
