If you drive harsh all the time then yes it is.

Go here and figure it out.

depends on how you drive? for a daily driver that sounds horrible because i have a gsr motor in my civic with a 10.9 gallon tank i believe and even driving like a jackass all the time i still manage around 250 miles per tank.

On a full tank I can get 400 kms (about 245 miles) at the bare minimum. I've gotten as much as 430 regularly, and even did 500 all highway a couple times.

I get 360 regularly. You might need a tuneup.

that sounds like a lot to me, how many gallons do u usuall fill up? 10-10.5?

i usually fill up and takes up about 9-10 gallons at about 270-280

I've gotten as low as 210-220, but that's really low, usually Strict City/stop-go driving or higher rpm driving (auto-x, agressive)

Yes i fill mine up everytime from empty. I always run it until the low fuel light comes on. Keep in mind I live in WV and drive mostly 2 lane roads. I get pissed when I only get 320 on a tank. My mileage is always between 32 and 34 mpg. It depends on how i drive.

NGK or Denso is fine. OEM cap.

How do you know it's the plugs?

How many miles do you have on them? I think I might need to change in my car too.

Check compression? Could be a deeper issue thats not too bad yet. I just don't see the plugs causing that dramatic of a milage loss. Hopefully I'm wrong though.
