Make sure the air filter is clean,make sure the oxygen sensor is ok but would have to suspect its carboned up due to vehicle age ,if not working properly it tells the engine to run richer than normal.Also make sure the plugs and spark plug leads are in good condition.It wouldnt hurt to put a bottle of injector cleaner in the fuel tank next service as dirty injectors will also add to fuel use.A few small things to do or check but worth it by the sound it.

My mitsubishi galant 2000 model is has too much consumption, 30 litres for 200 kilometers without AC urban.


Many things can cause excessive fuel consumption. First, make sure that none of the brakes or transmission is dragging, or that the transmission is shifting properly. We had a car in the shop recently that had poor fuel mileage and one of the front calipers was dragging against the rotor. (also check the parking brake). Next, is everything up to tune? Good spark plugs, clean airfilter, good PVC, good Oxygen sensors, check for codes, etc. Check if there is a vacuum leak - (use a vacuum gauge). Lastly, if you have access to one, use a emission tester in the exhaust to see what the levels of hydrocarbons are. This will at least tell you if the engine is running clean. Sometimes poor fuel mileage might be a combination of things which all add up, like under-inflated tires, spark plugs fouled, parking brake slightly dragging and poor driving habits. I can always tell the customers who get poor fuel mileage by how often they need new brakes. Someone who lets the car coast and isn't on the brakes much usually gets much better mileage. Those who speed right up to a red light and then jam on the brakes at the last second usually have at least 20% worse mileage.

Hello,i bought a subaru outback 2002 from 3 months.and it's consuming more gas than normal.(130km/20 litre) could you please tell me what i have to change? and what is the normal consumption for this...


REPLACE AIR FILTER.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS,CHECK TIRE PRESSURE.LOW TIRE PRESSURE WILL CAUSE LOT OF FUEL CONSUMPTION.CITY DRIVING WILL BURN LOT MORE GAS,STOPPING VECHICLE THEN GOING WILL CAUSE MORE GAS BURNING, YOU NEED POWER AND FUEL TO GET VECHICLE IN MOTION,BY IT BEING HOT WEATHER, USING AIR CONDITIONING TO KEEP COOL INSIDE WILL CAUSE MORE FUEL CONSUMPTION.

Idling problems may be cause buy a number of issues.  You may check out the fast idle control valve and PCV if they would need cleaning.  You can check out the timing it may be advanced, that is why you feel that the car runs hard.
