    I was getting 40mpg and over the last few months it has dropped to 33 on my 2003 Toyota Echo. The check engine light has also been on for a while. Any ideas on what to check.

EPA mileage figures are estimates, and seldom does it have anything to do with the real world, My new car is rated at 19 city and 28 hiway, it gets 22 MPG max. The only thing you can do is make sure the pressure in the tires is correct and run the recommened oil, keep the car in good running order.

Reducing fuel consumption of Toyota tercel 1986 car


This is a very wide encompassing question. It basically revolves around a thorough engine diagnostics and tune up, replacing filters and plugs etc. The quality of all oils will have a small influence on fuel consumption, as will type of tyres and tyre pressures. The most profound influence on fuel consumption is however your driving style and that is a subject too vast to go into here. It boils down to a smooth driving style, judicious use of the transmission (manual or automatic) and driving within the engine torque range whenever possible. Finally high speed requires additional fuel to deliver the power it needs to overcome wind and rolling resistances.
