Default poor gas mileage

I own a 2005 honda civic, 80000km and the mileage is poor, car runs
fine except for the lights keep diming off and on when ideling but not
when driving. Does anyone know what to look for to improve my gas
mileage?

Sounds like the Electrical Load Detector has failed. There's a known issue
with this model and its ELD.

Is your Check Engine light on?
