Hi guys, been a while since I've been on here.

Just wanted to check if anyone knew why my fuels consumption was extremely low and what I can do to fix it? I'm getting about 30 miles from £10

That's roughly 19mpg. Hole in the fuel tank? Brakes stuck on?

I put £30 in my Accord yesterday and got 150 miles out of it doing mainly town and motorway miles. So yours is definitely pretty bad. Can you pop it into a garage and get them to check for any fault codes?

Check air filter is clean and brake not binding.  Perhaps a few squirts of carb cleaner through the intake.  Check all wheels for brakes binding.  and tyre pressures
