Drinks too much

Asked by Louise McGoldrick

I HAVE a 2005 Honda Accord VTi and like M. H. Rezaee (Carsguide November 5) also get 14.0 litres/100km. The advertised fuel consumption is 9.3 litres. I'm told I need to get more kilometres up before the fuel consumption meets the Honda claim. Why is this?

HONDAS generally seem to be tighter from new and appear to take longer to run in so I would expect your consumption to improve as you accumulate the kilometres. Will you achieve 9.3 litres/100 km? I doubt it if you are now getting 14.0 litres/100 km. I'd expect it to drop to about 12.0 litres/100 km.
