Default Shouldn't the i-vtec get better milage?

I mean from reading an outline about it and the variable valve timing and the variable lift? lift, right? shouldn't it be in the 30-40mpg not 25 mpg or lower which is what I estimate. I just eyeballed it I haven't done a proper calculation in years.

To better answer your question, it would be better to know the year, make and model of your vehicle. But in general, yes an i-vtec engine should get better gas mileage than its non vtec counterpart. The thing with i-vtec engines is that they have two camshafts while most other vehicles only have one. One camshaft is to help get better gas mileage while the other kicks in when you're in the gas to get better performance. So that would be an explanation why you're not getting such good gas mileage, that's if you drive with a heavy foot. Another reason is that it may need a fuel filter. Maybe even an oil change. There's countless things that will make a vehicle get less gas mileage but those are usually the main 3 that won't cause a "check engine" light. Now if you have a check engine light, then you should take your vehicle to a local Auto Zone where they can hook it to their computer and tell you exactly whats wrong for free
