Asked by Apr 06, 2015 at 11:39 PM about the 2008 Honda Civic EX-L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has the average fuel economy Guage. It is metric, so
it shows l/100km instead of mpg. But it shows 30. It does
not change. Ever. Even if I reset the trip odometer, the
l/100km remains the same.
