Default 2000 Honda Accord, Bad MPG?

2000 Honda accord was getting 22 mpg on the highway, EPA is 30. Engine is 4 cyl with VTEC. What could cause bad MPG? Can VTEC get stuck in the "on" position? Car only has 60,000 miles. Please help.

Try replacing you spark plugs, air filter, and you oil filter along with the oil. You will definitely get more MPG after this.

well first off you wont get 30 mpg unless you keep your rpms at about 2500 secong if you dont do your proper maintence ie plugs wires oil changes and at aabout 100000mi you need to do your fuel filter then you will get good mpg but just keep an eye on your rpms especially with vtec wihich kicks in at about 3800 rpms

Oil filters and spark plugs may need to be changed.Have Honda specialists take a look at your car at their service center
