I have a 2011 Honda Accord EXL. It has the 2.4L with 190 HP.

Customer Question

I have a 2011 Honda Accord EXL. It has the 2.4L with 190 HP. It has 68k miles. We just purchased it and I am trying to figure out why it is accelerates slower than our 2006 Accord 2.4L with 224k miles. I replaced the air filter and that hasn't seemed to make a difference. The plugs aren't supposed to be changed until 105k. Could that be a problem? Injectors needing to be cleaned?
JA: When was the last time the filter was replaced? How has your mileage been lately?
Customer: I just replaced the air filter the other day. We recently drov e to FL and could only get 30 MPG. However, I put 93 octane in the next tank and got 34.5 MPG. The next tank Inwent back to 87 and it dropped to 30 MPG.
JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes if I can. I put in a K&N air filter just the other day.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not yet.
