I have a 2001 isuzu rodeo and my gas needle is broke, how much would it usually cost to get fixed, how many highway miles per gallon and city miles per gallon please?


You would need to check with a local garage for repair prices.
To find your average mileage, fill up the tank, write down the mileage, then do it again at around 200 miles. Divide the mileage traveled by the number of gallons used. I would recommend filling up after you have used about 8 or 9 gallons to prevent running out of gas. You can't go by the federal mpg numbers because everybody drives differently.

Why does my tahoe use so much gas


its not the gas its the price of the gas that seems like bad mileage go to gas station and fill till gas pump clicks off at slow fill record mileage and gallons to fill/road test for 25 miles go back to same gas station same side of gas pump and refill at slow fill and record miles and gallons to refill this will give you best practice for fuel mileages/PS drive in cityor highway not both causes difference in gas mileage

Won't pass smog when it should...


Just because the car seems to run well, does not mean the emissions are within spec. For example, you could be running a little rich and the car will start and run great, but the exhaust is not within code.
What you can do is take it to a "smog shop", that is a repair shop with the proper equipment to diagnose the problem. If the testing is simply the reading of the on board computer codes, then most any place can read those, but you need an experinced mech to know what to do about it. May need an exhaust gas analyzer to physically sample and analyse the gasses. For the actual test, as long as the computer says all is fine, usually, you're good to go.
If the computer looses power any saved run data will be lost and must be re-accumulated to pass the smog test. A few hours to a day is usually enough run time to accumulate enough data.

Gas light failure


You will need to remove the fuel tank and replace the sending unit is my guess. This should be checked by a local shop before buying any parts.

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003


One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

Smog test will not pass


This code is send (in your case NOT SEND)
by the fuel sending unit.

Does your fuel gauge give incorrect of jumpy reading when it's full?

The quick fix is STOP TOPPING OFF the fuel tank when you are get gas.

Keep topping off will push the fuel tank float off it's sensor limit and eventually short or send OUT OF RANGE reading to the fuel gauge.

Fill your truck up to 3/4 tank full.

Drive it for 2-3 days or about 100 miles.
(this will fill the ready-ness data that DMV want)

If there is NO check engine light ON during the 2-3 days then give the smog test another shot.

DO NOT add fuel unit you complete the smog test.
===

The CORRECT method to fix your problem is to drop the gas tank and replace the fuel sending unit.

If you truck has over 140,000 miles on it then I will recommend you the change the WHOLE integrated fuel pump/fuel sending unit and fuel filter at the same time.

To much gas burning


Your fuel mileage is about 24.8 MPG.
Your 1997 Neon is reported as getting between 25-34 miles to the gallon (depending on driving conditions)
Do you do a lot of city driving, or highway?
Do you jet around everywhere (like me) or drive like someone's great grandmother?
If you do a lot of the former, you're actually getting good gas mileage.. a lot of the latter and .. well.. check your fuel tank for leaks.

Since I no longer live in California, I don't care what you do but your problem sounds like the EGR system and if they replaced the valve, it isn't working, probably stuck open. This allows exhaust gases to invade the engine when it can't tolerate it; that path should only be open when the engine isn't pulling hard or at an idle. That widget also costs gas mileage so I always stuck a ball bearing or a screw into the vacuum hose that controls it disabling it so it never opened. On some vehicles that can give back 10-15% of your lost gas mileage. However, if the valve is stuck open, plugging the hose won't help at all.
