Do you have a check engine light? Are you heavy on the gas and make hard stops? are the tires all inflated to at least 32-34 PSI?

Have high fuel consumption on my fiesta 1.4 fuel injection.11 lt/100km. car runs smooth.


high fuel consumption Petrus, sticking E brake, poor gas, tune up needed, lazy O2 sensor,
leaking injectors, driving habits, etc. all can cause more fuel consumption. Have it scanned to help determine cause.

Lancer 2000 mx efi high fuel consumption


1. Check if the ECU is throwing any error codes.

Could be
2. O2 sensor(s) or/and clogged Cat converter
3. Dirty air cleaner
4. leaking injectors
5. Worn or broken rings: check the wet and dry compression.
Might even be the ECU itself, running in "limp" mode because of a partial board failure.

I have a 3s 2000cc egine, the problem is high fuel consumption. Imagin 1lt only going for 6km. Please help.


Hi there,

As you have not stated the vehicle MODEL or Year of Manufacture, I will provide a 'general' solution:

There could be numerous causes for high fuel consumption, but if you have used this amount of fuel in such a short journey, there would have to be leaking fuel somewhere.

However, the only true method to measure "ACTUAL" fuel consumption (disregard trip computer) is:

- Completely fill tank to a pre-determined point inside the fuel tank filler tube.
- Set your cluster Trip Meter to: 0000
- Drive vehicle for 6 - 15km and return back to the same gas station pump used previously.
- Completely fill tank to the same point inside the fuel tank filler tube, where filled previously.
- Note the quantity of litres required to fill to that same point in the filler tube.
- Divide the litres used, by the total Km travelled on your Trip Meter.
- If the value calculates less than 20 (carburettor engine); less than 15 (EFI engine), then consumption is acceptable.

Note: if value is above these numbers, then you have a fuel leak, or a problem with your vehicle's carburettor adjustment. EFI engines can have numerous causes, including electronic sensor faults etc.

Cheers,

High fuel consumption, could it be coolant sensor


I'd be looking at a partially clogged fuel filter first choice. Also check for a possible small fuel line leak. Question for you- when was last "healthy" tune up? A plugged air filter, worn spark plugs and colder weather all contribute to a "high fuel consumption"

1992 jeep grand cherokee high fuel consumption


If the tail smoke is blueish (not dark and sooty) and the engine runs right then it's a leak. Put the car on a clean flat surface, start the engine and look for the leak - start with the fuel tank.

POWER STEERING AND HIGH FUEL CONSUMPTION


You need to check the the power steering resevior located under the hood, the fluid level may be low, and a possible leak, if low you will need to add some power steering fluid, the fuel consumption maybe in need of a tune-up oil change, spark, plugs, fuel filter, air filter.
