Check your air filter and replace your spark plugs.































Also, your driving habits play a huge role in fuel use. Its fun to VTEC, trust me I know, but it hurts the mileage something fierce.

Could be a number of reasons for poor gas mileage:































1. imporper or low tire pressure















2. dirty air intake filter















3. old spark plugs















4. car needing a tune up















5. excessive weight in the car

That's not enough information. By wasting a lot of gas do you mean your getting a few miles less than you should MPG wise or does it seem like you go through an entire tank of fuel in only a couple days?































Changing the air filter may help especially if it hasn't been changed. It may have the good Honda reputation, but that doesn't mean you should skip out on maintenance.

gotta maintain a civic for it to run far and live with you long buddy.theres no reason that a civic should be giving you trouble.. an 07 model is quite new too.















check your filter/intake..if thats the problem. u can just go buy a cold air intake from anystore or brand names online, and definetly see how u drive. if u lovee pumping vtec and hitting 5400rpm..you need to hop back a little bit on the throttle
