Question about 2006 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Gas milage seems to have dropped.

The Gas mph of my 2006 Mits Galant E, seems to have dropped a lot during a one day period (actually over a few hours) and has not recovered. I was gettting on the average (on the road) approx. 35 mpg or better and now I am getting about 26 to 28 mpg. I first noticed the calculated mpg by the computer started dropping until it is now calculating a much lower number mpg. A 500 mile road trip confirmed the loss of gas milage. Any idea....anyone?

26 from 28 can be as simple as low air pressure in the tires and outside air temp changes.

Drastic drop in gas mileage

Sounds like the dealer's mechanic may have accidentally dislodged a hose or two.. take it back and tell them everything that has happened...MAKE SURE the boss there understands the 22% milage drop and the GASOLINE LEAK didn't start until THEY worked on it!!!

Have a trained diagnostic tech listen to this noise, as you can imagine diagnosing a noise on this computer link is really impossible, you need to hear it first hand.

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.

My 1996 mitsubishi galant may have a bad ground. the battery is constently dead, even with a new battery, if it sits the battery will be dead in 5 hours. i get a jump and it starts right up, but if i fail...

you need to get the charging system and battery tested. Most places charge about $40 for this service. Only takes a few minutes to complete but it will be money well spent. Then you can do the replacement parts yourself if you inclined.
