Hi Samuel, Have a diagnostic scan carried out on the vehicle. If it does not record any faults have a service carried out, making sure to replace the fuel filter, air filter, oil filter and to use a good quality engine oil. Have the spark plugs replaced and a full tune up carried out. Your problem has no easy answer. An increase in fuel consumption can be for many different reasons. If the fuel filter has become partially blocked you will press your foot harder to get the required performance. It can be related to brakes binding, or worn wheel bearings. An increased fuel consumption can be related to different tyres with different tread patterns having been fitted or even incorrect tyre pressures. It can be related to bad wheel alignment. It can be related to a greater load of out put on the alternator or AC compressor output load. Let me have some more details and we'll see what we can check and hopefully solve the problem. Regards John

SOURCE: How to improve the fuel efficiency?

Consider getting this info on ADDING Hydrogen power to your fuel. Raises fuel mileage 25% to 50%+.
http://tinyurl.com/6zmchd

Imagine if it works - raise your fuel mileage to 21+ in stop n go driving, up tp 35+, maybe 40 mpg with a steady low cruise on the highway, at 60-62 mph.

only costs $170-$200 if you can do it yourself, if you can change pcv / oxygen sensors / plugs / fuel filters, YOU can do it.
Else, pay a mechanic an extra $200 for 2 hours work for him/her to install in 45 minutes.

SOURCE: my Toyota 1985 has high fuel consumption i have

Did you take it apart. That is my definition of cleaning. Is the float sinking and allowing too much fuel to enter from the fuel bowl. I hope it's not fuel injected because, I only know what you tell me. Most vehicles from 84 on have no carb.

Lancer 2000 mx efi high fuel consumption


1. Check if the ECU is throwing any error codes.

Could be
2. O2 sensor(s) or/and clogged Cat converter
3. Dirty air cleaner
4. leaking injectors
5. Worn or broken rings: check the wet and dry compression.
Might even be the ECU itself, running in "limp" mode because of a partial board failure.

My Hyundai 1999 model CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ALWAYS ON AND THE FUEL CONSUMPTION IS HIGH.


Do you have black smoke or what looks like soot coming out of the tail pipe. The check engine light monitors fuel pressure through the computer and pressure regulator. It will come on if the pump pressure is too high or too low. If the pressure regulator is faulty it could cause excessive fuel consumption,

Very high fuel consumption on a nissan vannete cargo 1996 45 liters for 350 kilometres is it normal ?


For sure the fuel consumption if very high specially if you are a moderate driver and do not drive at very high RPM. Now the possible areas to check must be the fuel pump calibration and the timing. If this is out of order/settings then the fuel can be wasted without utilization which can result in high consumption.

My 2001 kia rio 1.3l consumes so much gas at about 9 kilometers per liter. I believe they can go upto 14-15 kph per liter. What should i do to minimize gas consumption?


You can over-inflate your tires by about 8%, use a K&N air filter, drive 15 kph slower on the highway, accelerate slowly and never accelerate uphill, draft behind larger vehicles, regular maintenance (oil changes, spark plugs, wires, filters), use a fuel system cleaner every oil change. These can increase your fuel economy drastically, but if you are still noticing poor fuel economy you should have the car checked by a mechanic for what might be causing the high fuel consumption.

i hope this helps
