There is a DTC error stored, in the ECU. (scan tools show this)
there is a car puter, error, message that really means
the gas tank is not holding air pressure.."EVAP sys"
and 99% of the time, that is "a loose gas cap"
it can take many driving cycle to clear this code.
or 1second with any scan tool, even a $30 tool.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Suzuki XL7 tire pressuer sensor that won't go out!

I hate tire pressure monitors, in this case it sounds like you have a bad one. if you take it to the dealer they will be able to tell you which one is bad.

SOURCE: The check engine light came on in my Suzuki XL7

I had a similar problem with a 2008 model. It was the wiring directly under the gas tank under the vehicle. It was causing multiple lights to come on at different times. Had it not been for my looking myself we would not have found it. The dealer repaired it by wrapping it in electrical tape!! That lasted a few days. They re-did it and it lasted a few months. Now it has happened again. The first dealer said "animals" must have chewed the wires. I contacted a different suzuki service dealer this time, only giving them the basics of the problem, only to have him tell me that they have problems with "animals" chewing the wires on these vehicles--almost as if he had been coached. Be very careful. The wire that control the fuel guage is in the bundle. If it breaks the vehicle will not start.

My sister has a 2008 suzuki XL7 that has suddenly started getting very bad gas mileage. She as around 10 gals/mile. What should she check?

which engine. ? 2.5Liter V6??????
they get 19mpg all the time. no matte,r what you do.
so 10 is bad. (wow, a near virgin car.... rare that.. this old..)
id sell it, while it still has value, Suzuki dont sell cars here in USA and Canada now, and that needs careful thought, i'd sell.)
Get at toyota or mazda .

1: IS check engine light glowing, driving? bingo. see #2
2: did you plug in any OBD2 scan tool and scan it, most good shops
will scan it for free with the full power scan tools not seen at autozoned. they have full scan that can scan ALL factory codes.
3: air cleaner dirty?
4: spark plugs fouled, (some bad gas can to do that or using junk additives, ?)
5: Fouled Injectors, run a tank of Chevron fuel or add Techron additive to fuel to clean injectors. low miles, means this car sits long time to me and fuel my be getting bad, sitting, and causing injector gum up.
I hate additives but if in a jam, Chevron works and is safe .
6: engine stuck in limphome mode. see #2
7: fuel pressure way too high, rare but is always possible,
8: leaking injectors, see 5
9: someone stealing fuel.
10: checking MPG wrong.

I have suzuki XL 7 2005 67mile egine light is on

In order to see why the light is on you will need to have the computer scanned for the codes, there are many auto part stores that will scan it for free, a common reason also could be the gas cap is not on tight, if thats the case then tighten or install gas cap and drive may take a week of driving for light to go off.

I need a maual for a 2003 Suzuki Limited Edition XL-7

You might be mistaken about the check engine light. I have done all the oil changes on my wife's 2003 XL7 and never once have I had to reset anything. If you mean the SERVICE ENGINE SOON lamp, that means the computer detected a problem with the emission control (or someone didn't put the gas cap back on correctly during the last trip to the gas station). Check the gas cap 1st, just take it off and put it back on, making sure to give it a few "clicks" past the stop. If after a few days the light doesn't go out head over to a suzuki dealership and have your ECS checked out.
