Hi the first thing you might want to look at is low tyre pressures or a fuel leak? After eliminating those i would look at the MAF or mass air flow meter. If you unplug your air flow meter with a hot engine and drive it there should be a large difference in performance, if there isnt then replace the MAF as it is faulty.

How much money in gas will i spend in a 224 mile trip, at $2.29 a gallon?


Depends on miles per gallon of vehicle. Average mpg of say 15 mpg would take 15 gallons to travel 225 miles.(15x15=225). At $2.29 per gallon @15 gallons=$34.35. So figure out mpg of your vehicle and do the math.

I have a 2009 Ford Focus, I keep an eye on the little light that tells me what my average miles per gallon is. It usually stays in the 30 to 32 mgp range but yesterday I noticed that it had dropped to 28...


The most likely problem is that the gas you bought most recently was a "summer blend" designed to give you LESS MPG! That's because the companies want more profits, NOT better fuel economy, which would give those companies LESS profits instead of MORE profits!

How many miles per one galoon


The gas tank holds 18.5 gallons and the car gets 17 - 25 miles per gallon. On the freeway you can expect around 24 mpg.
So for your trip you could go 330 miles on a tank of gas.
14 gallons x 24 mpg

How do I reset the distance to empty


The DTE is automatic and is the result of your previous miles per gallon multiplied by the gallons of gas registered in your tank.

Unlike the Trip miles, this DTE number can not be reset. It will vary by the fuel mileage per gallon recorded at each startup. That is why if you filled the tank and showed 400DTE you may have had 20 Gallons multiplied by 20 MPG. But if your new average is 16 MPG then it would show 320 DTE.

Sync new immobiliser to 95 camry


For a 1995 Toyota Camry 4 cyl, 2.2 L, Automatic 4-spd, that runs on regular gasoline, the miles per gallon in the city is 19 MPG. On the highway, it's 26 MPG, and combined 21 MPG for both city and highway driving. The average cost of gasoline per year for this vehicle would be $2700.00.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I changed my fuel pressure regulator in my 92 sedan deville and now i get worse miles per gallon than before


the fuel pressure regulator will not do it. you need to look at spark plugs ,wires ,air filter, fuel filter. tires pressure if tires are under pressure can cause bad gas mpg

First things I would look at is,did they put 10w30 oil in and not 5w20 or 0w20,it makes a difference in mileage (if they run out of the correct viscosity oil they WILL put in what they have).
Did the service include a spark plug change?Is the spark plug gap correct?
Did they do a brake service?Is a brake dragging,a little to tight?Did they clean the throttle body?Maybe the engine was running a little lean before and now is at the proper fuel mixture,with less MPGs but running clean at the exhaust.
Weather conditions?Head winds and colder temps reduce MPG.

How many gallons per hour does this car lose?


hey
at the begging u should clarify how many gallon u used.
112 miles at 28 miles per gallon --> 4 gallons burned (112/28)
So that means we leaked 11 - 4 = 7 gallons

Now figure out how long the car was driving.
112 miles at 64 miles per hour --> 1.75 hours

So, leak was at a rate of 7 gallons in 1.75 hours
7/1.75 = 4 gallons per hour leaked.

Miles per gallon


About 11 MPG. I had to convert KM to Miles. Of course this is for "highway" driving without a lot of stops and starts. I didn't find any information on city driving, but I would guess that it would be around 8 MPG.
