Asked by Feb 03, 2014 at 12:56 PM about the 1998 Honda CR-V LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 98 Honda CRV. I was getting about 27 MPG and am currently getting 16 MPG in a matter of two weeks! The check engine light is not on, I just changed the oil and the air filter. What could be causing this? Thanks for your help!

Tire pressure will effect MPG. Did you check the pressure recently? Cold weather will drop the pressure at least 5 lbs. Spark Plugs changed recently?

The tire pressure is fine and I haven't checked the spark plugs recently, but the car is running fine. Usually it's a little bumpy if one of the cylinders isn't firing properly...
