  4. Electrics Petrol Float Emulator

    Electronics (8G)
    Hi all, yesterday I installed a petrol float emulator on my Honda Civic 1.8, 2006. The reason for this was that the information on the dashboard about the petrol level in the tank is not correct, and while the car is running on gas it shows a decrease in the level of petrol. This is because, as...

    Hi all, I am running a2007 FK2 1.8 petroland the fuel economy is awful. Although the display shows 35 to 40 MPG, the reality at the pump is around 25 to 28 MPG. :facepalm: Driving-wise I take it very smoothly and do the school run. So, any ideas on what I can do? Can these cars be...
  7. Fuel problems refuelling / pump cutting off

    Bugs, faults and irritations (8G)
    Hello all! Well, I've tried researching this one, but have not really found much more than a single mention of it elsewhere. My wife has a 2011 TI edition. She has been experiencing serious problems refuelling. Essentially, the pump clicks off as if the tank is full after only a few seconds...
  8. Fuel Fuel Gauge Calibration?

    Bugs, faults and irritations (8G)
    Probably clutching at straws here; but is there any way to calibrate the fuel gauge? I don't know whether this is the same with everybody but whenever I fill up with fuel, my fuel gauge shows full for probably 70 (only get 350 miles a tank) miles before moving off full, and then as soon as it...

    Buying, Dealers and Servicing
    Hello everyone. I know that there is lot of questions about choosing between diesel and petrol but my question is different though. I am about to buy a used Civic 2006/2007 (I hope so), and a bit concerned. My options are for eq. either 2.2 diesel with 120000-130000 miles on the clock...
  12. MPG Mpg reading

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    How accurate is the MPG reading on a Honda Civic. I drive a 1.8 ex and following a recent trip to Bruges the computer was showing an average of 44MPG. The milometer reading was 650 miles when I returned home and I used 2 tanks of fuel, approx 44 litres per tank. The issue I have is when I...
