2.0 i-VTEC MPG

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have just purchased a beautiful example of an Accord 2006 2.0 i-VTEC with less than 40,000 miles with full main dealer service. Can anyone share their MPG with me. With mixed urban driving, not toeing it at all, all I can seem to get is 26mpg. I would be very interested to hear other peoples experience.

Thanks

Hi Marv...welcome to the Forum

 

That does seem a bit low....I would be tempted to go through a few things to improve the MPG....such as Spark Plugs, Air Filter, Engine Oil, all of which can improve the economy.

After that, then I would consider taking the car on different runs to see where it improves....e.g. motorway versus Dual Carriageway, longer runs, etc.

May also need a clear out by running some cleaning solution through the fuel and giving it a blast up the motorway. Depends on how the previous owner drove it and may not have given it enough of a clear out every so often.

Thanks for the reply. I have given it a motorway run a good 2 hours. I will interrogate the garage where it was serviced to see what they changed. It's a shame I might have to sell it on as it is a beautiful drive.

That would be a shame as the only other option would be LPG which would be cheaper to run the car on but would take some time to recoup the outlay
