What causes high fuel consuption and what can be done to reduce fuel consuption in a RAV4

A lot of different things starting with air pressure in your tires being correct, a clean air filter, replace the fuel filter, and drive sensibly, no jack rabbit starts and try to do the speed limit. A proper tune-up can go a long way and don't drive with the check engine light on. There could be something seriously wrong with your vehicle if your check engine light is on.

You can overinflate your tires by a few psi over standard, not use AC, avoid stop and go driving and jack rabbit starts, remove unnecessary heavy objects from car, keep max speed around 55, proper oil level, no brakes dragging, anticipate stops and let off gas, etc.

In a 92 GMC Jimmy, Where is the Fuel Pressure regulator?

If this is the 4.3 liter the fuel pressure regulator is located in the intake valley. You will need to remove the upper half of the intake manifold, once removed you will see a small round regulator located at on end of the injector line.

Upnormal consumption in gasoline

try changing the oxygen sensors this will make the biggest difference in fuel consumption. also depends on weather conditions and fuel quality in your area i know where i am at winter fuel runs alot worse then summer fuel because of the emission control additives they put in it.

Over consuption of fuel

That is a very low consumption figure, are you sure you don't have a leak in the fuel system?

Of course it depends on the vehicle, engine size etc and the driving conditions eg city or high speed driving and weight being carried.

You should have had the ignition system i.e plugs, injectors and air filters checked over. An over rich mixture can drastically reduce fuel consumption.

Please remember to rate this soltion.
