My girlfriends Honda CRV is getting 240 miles to the tank...she has no clue about the

changing the filters, will it improve the fuel economy of the vehicle??

Look at the air filter, is it dirty? If so change it. Will it increase MPG? Probably not. How many miles on the CR-V? Change the plugs, clean the air intake/throttle body, etc. CEL on? Check tire pressure too.
