You are lucky those plugs didn't kill your ignition coils. Hondas should only use Denso or NGK plugs. Bosch isn't good for Hondas because the resistance is not correct and this is likely causing an inferior spark leading to your loss in MPG.

Best bet, get a set of NGK plats

I would go with denso, just because they are a little cheaper and theres a slight different in performance better...the ngk is propably harder to find and usually more expensive.
