SOURCE: Fuel consumption too high

yeah....greenjiant is right.....you must do it....or else you are risking your engine to develop slugde.....in short words just givie it a tune up........and get a good injector cleaner..........

tune up: sparkplugs and wires, air filter, oil filter,PCV valve and good grade oil, "5w20, 5w30, 10w30 seem to give you the best mileage...."dont use 0w20 as this is probably the thinnest oil there is" "in older engines this will casue excessive wear and friction on your poor engine"

if your car has over 45,000 but less than 60,000 use 5w30...."or you can ask your mechanic"

use cruise control more often...and be easy on you gas pedal.....and you will get the most out of your gas mileage.......

There should NEVER be fuel from the tank even when topping off, only a burp from the filler neck if any.

There are a few hoses to the EVAP and Vent system over the tank that crack and will leak. You really should have it inspected soonest.

here's what you can do to fix your clutch.

1. if your clutch still uses clutch cable (there is a cable between the transmision and the clutch pedal), the you can adjust the clutch release by tightening/loosen the clutch pedal. adjustments can be done on the transmission side of the clutch cable.
2. hydrovac clutch with self correcting feature. just pull your clutch pedal for a few seconds and check if the clutch release changes.
3. hydrovac clutch without self correcting. between the clutch pedal and the clutch master, you can see a piece of metal rod that connects the 2. this metal is called push rod. there are screws/nuts at the clutch pedal to adjust this push rod. just adjust this screw to your prefered clutch release.

Sometimes my 2007 range rover has a ruff start feels like the gas isnt reaching the engine and we replaced the fuel pump?


Seeing as how the injectors have already been out I would bet that is your problem ! Go to a main Dealer or a good indy LR specialist who will hook up to a diagnostic center and tell you

What is D3 in autogear


it will be more noticeable at highway speeds if you use D3 as the transmission won't use the 4th and 5th gears. This will result in higher engine revving (watch the tach) and will use more gas. The car may feel like it's accelerating faster at these speeds, but at the same time, engine braking will slow it more when you take your foot off the gas.King Scanner G3 for Toyota Tis and Honda Him

D3 exists if you are going up (or down) a mountain and want the engine to be limited to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear rather than "searching" for the best of 3rd, 4th, and 5th frequently (although with the grade logic Honda employs this has never annoyed me). ymmv (your mountains may vary).

D3 Doesn't hurt anything; slightly more fuel consumption as the engine will rev higher, but better to be in "D" for normal driving and let the transmission use its full range of gears

Hello,i bought a subaru outback 2002 from 3 months.and it's consuming more gas than normal.(130km/20 litre) could you please tell me what i have to change? and what is the normal consumption for this...


REPLACE AIR FILTER.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS,CHECK TIRE PRESSURE.LOW TIRE PRESSURE WILL CAUSE LOT OF FUEL CONSUMPTION.CITY DRIVING WILL BURN LOT MORE GAS,STOPPING VECHICLE THEN GOING WILL CAUSE MORE GAS BURNING, YOU NEED POWER AND FUEL TO GET VECHICLE IN MOTION,BY IT BEING HOT WEATHER, USING AIR CONDITIONING TO KEEP COOL INSIDE WILL CAUSE MORE FUEL CONSUMPTION.

I have a honda civic 97,if i place a turbo charger,will it make the fuel consumption efficient?how's the performance?tnx.


The fuel consumption will increase because of the increased horsepowers
How efficient would it be? that depends on how well the ECU will be adjusted (hondata)

Computer fuel consumption indicator randomly displaying numbers


This is a potential solution but if you are traveling down the highway and take your foot off the gas (or if you are on cruise no gas is required to maintain your speed) then the instant mpg calculation is similar to this 60 MPH / 0.0 GPH so effectively you end up with infinite gas mileage. But because the motor has to idle it's always using a little gas so it puts a very small number for the denominator which ends up giving you a high MPG. I've seen this happen in many makes of cars and I don't think it's anything to worry about.

Fuel Consumption Dial Reading


Hi,
The meter works with the rpm and the angle the throttle opens. In simple language...the more you press on the gas pedal the more it uses fuel.
The point at which fuel is efficiently used is when you are in higher gears at low revs.
Let us know if this answer makes sense to you.
Cheers.

How to improve the fuel efficiency?


my 2 cents -

1. You didn't specify your exact model, on this site you'll fond your answer - http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/bymodel/1989_Toyota_Camry.shtml

2. There are a few ways to do this, here's one -
- Fill your gas tank to the very top.
- Write down your odometer or reset you trip meter.
- Drive your car till it's time to fill it up again.
- When it's time to fill you tank, fill it to the very top (preferd in the same station, in the same pump).
- divide the number of miles (or kilometers) you drive, by the amount of gas you filled, This is of course only true for this gas tank, fuel consumption is effected by many things, load, driver, type of miles you do (city or hoghway), etc..

3. Service your car regularly, make sure tire pressure is correct, don't drive like you are racing.

Good luck,
Eitan.
