After sending my car to a mechanic to fit a new ignition coil, I noticed immediately that my usual mileage of 600 to 650km on a single tank of petrol has suddenly dropped to 400km and there is nothing I am doing differently to affect this. I use the highest quality petrol (premium 98) and is well serviced and the engine is in vgc. It would appear the engine is now using up more petrol than usual. Another mechanic has checked the engine and can see no evidence of petrol leaks. One possibility is that the Electronic Fuel Injection has lost something, perhaps a component has failed? But another mechanic says there are many factors that can cause this problem.
While it is quite likely the original mechanic may have done something to affect the petrol usage of the car, I cannot prove if this is the case.
Therefore, has anyone with a Honda vehicle ever experienced this problem before? What was the recommendation of the mechanic who repaired this kind of problem?
have the same problem?
