Low Fuel Economy

Hi Everyone,
i have a EK3 - 2000 Civic (D15Z4 Engine), Automatic. It has done 104,000 KM. I bought it about 3 months back.....

Changed the timing belt, tension, oil seals, filters, shocks, cleaned the injectors, tune up .. all from the Honda Agent. But it not doing great on fuel economy.......Only does about 7.5Km to the Litre...

U.S. 17 Miles per Gallon
U.K. 20.42 Miles per Gallon

By the way.. the tyre size is 185/65R14 .. Stock size was 185/70R13...

When all of the above failed... the agent plugged the computer & checked the ECU & other settings.... the guy who did the test said the Injectors are open (when idle) for about 3.4 to 3.5 ms... he said that looks to be the issue and the normal range should be 2.6 to 2.8 ms.......

I need your help..........

Not sure what model yours is, but I have just traded in my 2002 1.6 SE Sport with 133k on the clock. I was regularly getting 50mpg.

Welcome to CivInfo pal, and you are most welcome here, but shouldn't you be asking the question on a Toyota forum? We have lots of Honda experts here, but Toyota experts may be harder to find.

Maybe the Toyota forums aren't as friendly as the bunch on here
