My Mazda Demio. 1.3 is using too much petrol


Okay- thanks for the public announcement;...just kidding!
Mike it sounds like you have a heavy foot on the gas pedal- speeding around town- Ohhh, I gotcha' again! Or someone is pilfering your gas by siphoning it out; LOL

Okay, all kidding aside, the following issues can cause poor fuel economy:
  1. Incorrect tire pressure
  2. a bad or malfunctioning oxygen sensor
  3. dirty or plugged air filter
  4. dirty or malfunctioning fuel injectors
  5. improperly working spark plug(s) e,g. misfires or improper gap
  6. poor driving habits, like sudden accelerations
  7. engine idling for inordinate or extensive amounts of time
  8. and as silly or unbelievable as it might sound, the type of motor oil...the viscosity that is used can affect gas mileage by up to 10-12%; regular oil changes using synthetic or manufacturer recommended oil that reduces friction should be employed.
  9. Defective coolant sensor
  10. Defective thermostat
  11. a leak in the intake manifold or EGR
  12. Poor compression- If you are driving a car that has high mileage, over 100,000 miles, affects fuel economy
  13. clogged catalytic converter or some other restriction in the exhaust system
  14. Dragging brakes
  15. slipping clutch or transmission
  16. Lugging around excess weight in the car
Any single one of...or combination of the above, could greatly reduce engine performance and affect gas mileage.

1998 Lincoln navigator with 180,000 miles is recently getting bad gas mileage and around 35 to 40 mph it will **** and seems to lose power then will start driving normal again but always have to press...


Your description sounds more like a torque converter clutch problem. It would explain the poor mileage, having to floor it to go. I suggest having the transmission scanned, looking at the slip speed of the torque converter clutch.

How to improve 2011 hundai mileage


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

Should the overdrive be on and does it affect gas mileage?


as a rule, no. many overdrives are automatic and don't engage until you reach 40- 45 mph and they do this by themselves. yes, this does affect gas mileage because the purpose of overdrive is to shift the transmission into a higher gear producing less strain on motor and ****** thereby increasing fuel mileage. conversely, if ****** is in high gear at lower speeds this increases strain (motor feels like it's lugging) reducing mileage. sounds as though you have manually selective overdrive and you will have to monitor mileage both with button pushed and without. then try pushing the button only when you reach 40-45 but you'll have to be continually conscious of the speeds at which you're driving.

Broken tailpipe on 1994 altima


Hi Ahill, If it is only the tail pipe it should not affect the consumption, but you may have exhaust gas coming into the vehicle at certain speeds, so I suggest you have it seen to asap, as there is a possibility of it being dangerous. Sleeping while driving is not good for your health! Regards John

265 65R17 interchangeable for 245 65R17?


The tire will be somewhat shorter. When your speedometer is reading 58 MPH, you are really going 60MPH Aprox 3.3% off . The gas mileage will be lower, beacuse the engine will be spinning faster at the same speed, therefore, less mileage,

Is it better to go into D3 wihile car is moving or stopped?


Well every gear has its limitations. I am not sure what the mph ranges for each gear are, but i've gotten to 60+ mph in 3rd gear. The only thing about driving on the freeway in 3rd gear is that it is alot less efficient mileage wise. Your turning more RPMS while on the freeway in 3rd gear so you burn up alot more gas.
Driving in D3 is driving in 3rd gear. It could burn up the tranny but it depends on the vehicle itself. It is not really made to do highways speeds in 3rd gear. It should be in 4th or 5th (OD)
