Driving habits are the main reason for bad mileage including: excessive idling, fast starts and stops, fast driving in general...best speeds are 50 to 60 MPH for economy, city driving uses most gas,
Mechanical problems include underinflated tires, leaving windows open at highway speeds, not keeping engine tuned up, not changing lubricants at proper intervals, not greasing wheel bearings, not aligning and balancing tires..etc

SOURCE: how do I improve gas milage on my 2006 3.3 Dodge

Not much to be done, however there is always this:

Proper tune-up
proper tires, alignment
Proper tire inflation (this is huge)
clean air filter, perhaps an air filter that is less restrictive
proper motor oil
Be certain the engine is at proper temp, not running too cool.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Gas mileage is very poor.


Stop and go driving obviously uses more gas. The best thing to do is to make sure you do not have a leak. Then the next time you fill up, record the gallons and current mileage on the car. Then compare the next time you fill up by the total mileage on the car divided by the gallons just inputted. That will determine if your gas mileage is high or average.

I would like to know how to get better gas mileage on a car-do I need a new air filter-it is only a 4 cylinder car.


The best way to improve gas mileage is to change your driving habits. K&N filters claim they can increase mileage, but there really is not 'miracle device' that can do so. Make sure the vehicle is running well, plugs and wires are all in good shape, air and fuel filters are clean.

Stay on highways as much as possible, and drive around with a glass of water that has no lid and is filled pretty high. Attempt to drive without spilling the water. This will drastically improve economy.

I am doing a tune-up on my 2000 ford windstar 3.8v6 are bosch plugs good to use in this van or what is a good plug to maximize gas mileage


Bosch are okey,just use the OEM configuration,not these 4 prong silly things, you see in ads.

Check out NGK-they come with motorcraft and ngk logos,from factory. Now you know who makes Ford Plugs

Two things---
1--you won't improve mileage on a 10 year old vehicle,or a new one,doing anything
2--There have not been Tune-Ups in 25 years,all vehicles are computer controlled,no tuning,no adjusting

You are performing a Preventative Maintainance Service--been that for over 30 years.
Remember OBD1 1980 thru 1995
OBD2 1996 thru 2011

Missing hoses on engine to carburetor and engine idle speed is very high and gas mileage is very low.


You have lost a vacuum hose. Replace it and the idle speed will go down and the gas mileage will improve.

What causes my nissan maxima to get low gas mileage? I was told the sensor bank one and had ti replaced no change in mileage.my gage jumps from 12 -27 miles a gallon.It drinks gas!


Driving habits...incorrect tire pressure...excessive weight in car...low oil/old oil. Many things affect mileage. My 2002 max needed a new O2 sensor. Once replaced the mileage improved slightly.
