My Civic has had poor gas mileage (27 mpg) since about 800 miles. I am now getting an error code P0172 - System too rich (Bank 1). What do I look for with this eror code?

Hi wiatrowski,

For DTC P0172 the following are possible causes :

Fuel pressure regulator clogged or stuck closed.
Clogged fuel return line.
A leaking fuel injector.
Fuel octane level less than specification.
A deteriorated primary HO2S-1.
Insufficient EGR system flow (D16Y5 engine).
A leaking or stuck open EVAP purge control solenoid valve.
Proper valve adjustment.
