Usualy it is 20 miles to the gallon and to improve your gas mileage i would do a tune up... spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter. and add tune up in a can its only like $4.00 from autozone. and also replace your airfilter, add air to your tires like 35 psi. and clean your fuel system .

Some Suggestions, you may have done them already. Change oil to 5W-30,change the air filter,Tune the engine,Check your tire pressure weekly. For every pound of underinflation, you can lose up to six percent in gas mileage, so if your tires are five pounds underinflated, you'll use up to 30% more gas.,get a wheel alignment,remove the tailgate,use cruise control "if equipped"whenever it is safe to do so,

Shouldn't a 2.0 liter engine be getting better gas Mileage than a 2.4 liter engine?


The size of the engine alone will not determine gas mileage. There are many other factors including vehicle weight, design of the motor, etc. So in answer to question 1, size isn't going to matter.

For question #2, make sure you change the oil, oil filter, air filter and keep the tires inflated to recommended specs. That might help you out a bit...

I have a 2006 GMC Sierra pickup. Since I started using E85 gas, mileage has dropped drastically. Can you tell me if I need to ues a different type of spark plug? Thanks, Will


These trucks with the flex fuel systems will not get as good of milage on E85. They are designed this way. I haven't heard of any kind of spark plug that will help you in this. It is kind of a trade off, better milage but gas is more expensive, E85 is cheaper and more enviromently freindly but gas milage suffers. I also have a 2006 Chevy but did not get the flex fuel for this reason. On my car I use it and the milage suffers a little but with the trucks you will see even less milage due to the fact that trucks get worse milage than cars to begin with.

Dont forget the fuel filter. An other thing you can do is have the catalitic converter replaced with a High Flow type.And there is always true duel exhaust.

2007 kia rondo seems to use alot of gas


I have the same issue of low gas mileage. My 2008 Kia Rondo with V6 (2.7Lt) gets 20-21 mpg in average. Even for highway mileage, it is around 21-22mpg. Very poor gas mileage. Disappointed. I hope it would improve in the future.

Bad gas milage


I know they didn't get the greatest fuel mileage, but I've worked on motorhomes that got better. Something doesn't sound right. You've checked all the obvious like, sticky calipers/brakes, proper size & pressure on wheels/tires, transmission shifting as it should, proper front end alignment,etc.? Oxygen sensor changed lately?
