Hi....
Is there a few possibilities for a Low mileage per gallon on any car.
But I will mention the more Importants.

The Spark plugs.
Depend on the Mileage on your car, Normally For a Prizm.
The spark plug should be changed every 30,000 Miles.
With Factory Dippon Denso ( ND) or NGK. Both are factory replacement.

Check for any Vaccum leak on the Intake Manifold and The Big Rubber hose from the Throttle Body
To the Air filter.. Or any restriction on the Big rubber hose.

Is very Important to Have changed the Oil every 3,000 miles.
Incredible But Old oil made any car to have low mileage per gallon.

Check the condition of the Transmission Fluid .
Is nessesary to change the first time at 60,000, and after Every 20,000 or 30,000 miles.
To old or burn Transmission fluid made the car run on more RPM to get power.
Compare with new oil ,

Ok. is there a few more things but check this first and let me know.

I hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya.

Check the fuel filter. It should be changed at regular intervals. Otherwise it can get clogged.

Ran out of gas, filled with gas still won't start


most likely a clogged fuel filter, all the impuritys laying in the tank got sucked in to the filter when you ran out of gas, and with air in the fuel pump it probably does not have the power to **** the fuel trough the clogged filter, replace the filter

I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer, that I think has ran low on gas.


If it ran out of gas you'll need to purge the air out of the fuel line. Chances are also good that you pulled some sediment off the tank bottom and clogged the filter. If that's the case you'll need to replace the filter.

Usually when it comes to bad gas mileage, an air filter change, fresh oil and filter, fuel filter and making sure you have no vacuum leaks....

Also, believe it or not, improper tire pressure will affect your gas mileage.

New spark plugs and wires are a "nicety" but if there is not damage to them, then they will be fine.

Horrible Gas Mileage


i would change the fuel filter and i would take a flashlight and to make sure none of my fuel injectors are leaking and i would also put the car on ramps and put something behind the rear wheels and check all of my gas lines under the car as while.
