My 1995 ford f-150 pu 4WD with 351 cleveland is getting bad gas mileage what all can i do to fix?


A few things that can be done is to do a full tune up: Plugs, wires cap, rotor, air filter and oil change. That will help. Also replacing or cleaning sensors like the Throttle position valve, Air intake valve, Air Temperature sensor and O2 sensors will greatly improve economy. Those sensors help to determine the proper air/ fuel ratio. if the mix is too lean or rich you will burn through gas. These relatively cheap repairs will definately help. i did all this to my 99' ram 4x4 last week and increased MPG from 9.8 to 13.4 mpg.

Thank you for your question and good luck!

Getting bad mileage on my 2002 Monte Carlo LS 3400 SFI 3.4 liter V6 and it is suppose to get 31/22 MPG can you tell me why this may be occurring?


www.fueleconomy.gov list the mileage for your vehicle at 29/19. I don't know what kind of mileage you have been getting, so I have nothing ot compare it to. You could be due for a tuneup, air filter and oil change. Scan the computer for trouble codes that may be stored in the computer and clear the codes. Keep your tires aired up to the max recommend pressure on the tire sidewall. All these things will improve fuel mileage. Great performance and mileage increase. Cold weather can affect fuel mileage as the engine runs richer until it warms up. The gas at the service stations has a lot to do with fuel mileage. Especially when they switch over from summer to winter formula. I got a boost in mileage and performance with a set of E3 spark plugs.

Installing new catlyic conforter is it hard? and would a old one reduce gas milage


Well, it all depends on what you think is "hard". Catalytic Coverters on Ford Explorers are no walk in the park - even for a seasoned technician.

Yes, an old converter that is clogged up can wreak havoc with your fuel mileage. However, if there is a problem with your converter that will affect fuel mileage, your Check Engine light will be yelling at you.

If your Check Engine light is not coming on, the best investment you can make for improving fuel mileage on a Ford Explorer is a tire pressure gauge.

I have a 05 nissan sentra and it rides great, but the gas mileage is terrible only getting approximately 18-20 mpg. What may be the problem. I upgraded the gas octane.


you need to change the spark plugs and wires to properly burn the gas fully then you can just get agood oil change and you would get better gas mileage

BAD ON GAS


You should be getting close to 360-390...depending on the type of driving you are doing. Increasing your gas mileage could be as simple as getting a fresh oil and filter job, change your air filter, change your fuel filter...and a biggie believe it or not, make sure you have the proper tire pressure. This will kill your mileage faster than anything else.

City MPG: 16-18 mpg
Combination MPG: 18-21
Highway MPG: Approximately 26 mpg
