The greatest thing you can do is to give it a full tune up. that consists of new plugs and wires. cap and rotor. air filter as well then change the oil and filter in both the engine and trans mission, make sure your tires are properly inflated as well. these changes should help the performance of the car. if you still feel that the milage is poor than i would suggest that you have the carburator adjusted and check the timing to insure that it's where it should be. hope this helps ....please rate this

How can I repair high fuel consumption problem in my car? Will the change of fuel filter make fuel consumption better and solve this problem?

what motor do u have in the car , there are only a small number of things you can do to help this , a good tune up , K&N air filter , headers ,good tires with proper air . make the car lighter depending on the size of your motor these are the main things you can but if you have a big block motor in yout car , get another car , if you have a 4 cyl already , you really are getting good milage per gallon , get a bike if you are a cheap skate

GMC 2500 Diesel, reduced engine power??

Just my 2 bits, go through a spring cleaning checklist. Plugs could be fouled up, fuel could be contaminated, you already did the filters. Do you have it chipped or programed? Change the exhaust lately? Do you have the code number? Autozone will scan it for you for free, tell you the code number. Again, just my 2 bits.

Had about 4 gal of diesel in tank and someone put 5 galons of gas in tank. Drove a mile and stopped for not sure how long. Went back out to start and would not start.

it all depends on how much diesel remained in the tank before the gasoline was added, and how new and sophisticated the diesel engine is. In a 2007 or newer clean diesel engine, any amount of gasoline will probably damage the sensitive emissions control components (DPF, OxyCat and SCR) and system. In older engines with much less sophisticated and "touchy" emissions systems, a lightly diluted (say 90 percent diesel/10 percent gasoline) mix would probably pass through with little or no detriment. It might simply cause reduced engine power, perhaps a bit more noise, and possibly a sharp warning from the emissions sensors that detect something other than pure diesel exhaust. It's high concentrations of gasoline that spell real trouble. Whether a modern clean CRD diesel or an old indirect injection unit, burning straight gasoline or highly diluted diesel fuel will almost certainly result in catastrophic damage to the mighty diesel engine.

High fuel cosumption

Bad fuel economy is related to certain problems that you can repair.The air filter is the first thing.then you should perform a regular tune up.Spark plugs wires cap and rotor then you should replace you two 02 sensors.This will increase your fuel economy allot.Another item is your mass air flow sensor located on the throttle body.This tells the computer how much fuel to inject into your motor.

My 95 honda accord gets terrible feul milage what can I do to improve it? Does my making 92 or 95 octane gas make much of a difference. My latest oil change I used the cheapest oil does that affect feul...

A heavier weight oil can reduce fuel economy. But the brand of oil will not. The difference would most likely not be noticed though as it will be minute. The higher octane gas burns at a different rate and should not be used. Your vehicle wants the 87 octane fuel and you should use it. There is no advantage of buying the high test in this vehicle. It only costs you more. The biggest factor you can control is the way you drive. Aggressive acceleration and braking will be one of the biggest economy reducers you will notice on a properly running vehicle.
