Question about 1987 Honda Prelude
When i have a full tank of gas my car will run fine.. But when it goes down to 3/4 of a fuel tank and i make a turn my car turns off..
You might need a new fuel pump. with a full tank of gass it is easy to pump the gass but if the pump is bad it will struggle with 3/4 tank of gass

Ok ready for this one,new gas cap,its true cars with bad gas caps will cause the check engine light go on,or your problem,it has to be pressurized when full and no air in the tank its ok,but as you use gas and have air in the tank with the low fuel the air pressure is leaking pass the cap,thus losing pressure,too bad you had to fix all the other stuff but look at it as an investment,after this works please give me a fix ya thanks

SOURCE: High fuel consumption
Check the following things: air filter, wheel alignment, and timing belt, all of them if not serviced on time can affect your fuel consumption. I do not think its the heat because I drive my car in Phoenix AZ with temperatures comparable to Dubai and I still get 500+ km/tank.

Did the mechanic check for engine codes with a scan tool? If not, u can have it done at most parts stores for free. Write down any codes they get off the honda's computer, ask them what to do to correct any trouble codes they find, and if it has anything to do w/ the gas smell. Have u checked under the car and in the engine compartment for evidence of gas leaks? Keep in mind that gas evaporates rather quickly, so it can be difficult to spot a leak. Put a large piece of cardboard under the car, and check it for wet spots or stains after parking. Let me know how u make out and if u need further help.
