Question about 1989 Audi 200
1989 audi 200 2.2 turbo automatc runs good, but has low gas mileage at 10 mph. How can this be fixed? Thanks.
Just a silly question...how much driving do you do that is at 10mph? Most times this is less than 5%...so if everything else is fine why be concerned? As far as the why of it, you could have a slight vacuum leak or any number of sensors that are very slightly out of range, not enough to cause a problem, but enough to change mileage expectations. The addition of ethanol to our fuel has also impacted fuel mileage...The dirty little secret about any alcohol fuel is that nearly twice the amount of alcohol is necessary in order to produce the same energy output of gasoline...which will definitely lower mileage. Some power can be "recovered" by increasing compression ratios and changing engine timing (advance)...However today's vehicles are calibrated and built to burn gasoline and cannot without, major mods, be made to use anything but. Alternative fueled vehicles make a compromise in these areas but a compromise is just that.
