That's definitely too low based on what you said. I took my 07 LX automatic around Texas visiting my daughters and in about 800 miles got 38mpg. I might try another dealer to check it out.

The oil life is now at 30%. I agree, something is not right. Yes, I am calculating properly - and I have done the calculation 20 or so times now with different fill ups.

I just filled again this morning and with around town driving got 33 mpg. I have 1500 miles on my car.

your mileage is horrendously low.
how far can you go on one tank?
my old civic used to take about 11 gallons. Going by that, i would have to assume that your tanks don't break 290 miles?

That is correct. I usually get about 280-289. I only got 300 once.

Good thing that's about a 13 gal tank, 300 would really be close to the edge with a 11 gal tank and your mileage.
Yours sure seems to be low gas mileage, I would like to know if you ever find what the reason is. 5000 miles and 30% oil life is about the same as mine.

Of the last 5 times, 3 were over 300 miles:
346/10.7 (this was mostly highway but at 70-75mph)
#146 of 158 2007 Honda Civic Turn Signal Question
Sep 23, 2007 (5:49 pm)
I bought a 2007 Honda Civic LX Sedan (Auto Trans) about a month back. I have noticed that while taking a turn, if I put on the turn indicator (left OR right) and then steer the wheel in the direction where I will be turning, I hear a 'click' coming from the area of the steering wheel.
I did some playing around with the steering wheel tilt and telescopic capabilities and still get the clicks. However, when I do NOT give a turn indicator, I do NOT get a click.
I also noticed that whenever I hear the click, AFTER the turn is complete, the steering wheel turns OFF the signal indicator. If I do NOT hear the click, my turn isnt curved enough for the steering wheel to turn the indicator off.
This tells me that the click is a mechanism instead of a bug. I never noticed this before but I have not been paying much attention before.
Is this something to be concerned about? Have you (other users) also heard a similar click?
I appreciate your reading this and apologize for the long post, punctuated with some capitalization (only added for emphasis).

There is probably not a single make or model of automobile that was manufactured in the last half-century that doesn't "click" the way you have described. This is a self-cancelling feature that returns the lever to the neutral (no signal) position as the steering wheel approaches the straight-ahead position after a turn has been made. This prevents your lights from continuing to blink (and annoy other drivers) long after you have completed your turn and may have forgotten to turn off your signal.
It is absolutely normal.

I have the same problem as kasturiranganr in my civic. I am almost certain that the clicking noise is not supposed to be there. The indicator sound that we hear when we put on the turn indicator is an electronic sound but apart from that I hear a mechanical clicking from the steering wheel area when I am making the turn. I get the feeling that its due to something getting worn out in the turn indicator mechanism but I am not really sure.
