1. I own an 08 Civic LX, on a full tank i get about 375 miles - 420 miles. So your talking at least 32mpg or so either way. During pretty much all city driving, which i did once to test out gas mileage, i think i got about 325 miles on a tank. if your only getting 260 miles on a tank you might wanna take it back, something could be wrong. Unless you accelerate rather quickly or drive over 80 on the freeway, gas mileage shouldn't be that bad. 2) Never had a brake problem, might wanna go in and get that checked out. I've never felt anything unusual when i press the brake. Either way, get your car back to the dealer soon, tell them whats going on and get it checked out. The gas mileage your getting should definitely not be that low though.

i own an 08 honda civic si and i get around 350 to 400 miles per tank. so check with the dealer you brought the car from. second, the braking problem its probably because your brakes are overheating quickly when going down a slope or hill don't press on the break initially to slow down if you have an automatic down shift from D to D3 and then press the brake. if you have a manual then down shift and release the clutch slowly.
