SOURCE: gas mileage

Whenever I use the heater, my gas mileage goes to sh*t . If you've been using the heater all the while, and suddenly this happens, you may have a clogged air filtre or not be firing on all cylinders and may require repair. Check your filtre first, but for cylinders, a good indication is your spark plugs - if they're wet, coated, or corroded, this may be part of the problem. KIA will charge you a lot to do this, and if everything is fine, you could be out almost $800. See my thread on spark plug replacement.

Another problem that may effect your consumption is your timing belt. Check how many miles or KMs you have and see how close to servicing you are. If you are within 3000mi or 5000KM of scheduled maintenance, get it done. It cost me $640cad. I would not suggest doing this yourself.

Best of luck.

The gauge on my suv marks it was overheating , we measured coolant and measures 240. mecanic replaced headgasket and suv had same symptoms, until the coolant temperature sensor was replaced.

Water boils at 220 degrees. Liquid cooled engines keep the the temp between 175-195degrees. Need to avoid boil over. 240 is boil over. Blown head gasket are very frequent since ethanol added to gasoline. Why? Fuel absorb water now because of ethanol especially if it sit longer than a week or two in your gas tank. The result...blown head gasket from engine fighting against contaminants burning in the cylinder. Prevention: drive more & use a marine grade stabilizer such as Sea-Foam at every fill up. Now you know.
