Actually that's not too bad, maybe 19 would be the best you could hope for. I have an 02 w4.7 V8 and I get 19.

I have got a 2005 Equinox and I'm getting horrible fuel mileage ! Like 7mpg in the city and 17 to 21 mpg on the highway , I've put new tires , battery , original equipment spark plugs and wires and still...


There are many things that could conspire to rob mileage. My first thought was possible transmission slippage. Although your city rating is horrible, the highway mileage is just a little off. 23-25 hwy is correct, 23 for lousy doped California gas, and 25 elsewhere. My guess is that you have slippage but above 45 mph, you are still getting advantage once the converter lock takes effect in overdrive. Just slippage until you reach that lock point.
Start with a full diagnostic of all stored codes in the ODB II computer, both for the engine and the transmission, then an evaluation of your transmission from a good shop.
Good luck, the Equinox is a darned good car,and worth the effort.

Will a new carbuator on a 1985 F-150 really improve my mileage


It is against federal regulations to remove anything at all,
from any vehicle.

Doing so, may hurt more than help, unless you
understand the technology your removing

A new carb is not the answer

Rebuilding yours yourself ,may make it start & run smoother,
but every day all vehicles wear & get less mileage,even brand
new ones.

All ford trucks from 1960 to this day have gotten 13 mpg at most

4.7Ltundra 2006 only getting 8mpg? should be 14 in city...


Well take a few things into consideration.

1. Is the truck lifted? If so it can effect your mpg.
2. Does the truck have oversized tires? If so this can effect your mpg.
3. Has all the routine maintenance been done? If not it can effect vehicle performance and gas mileage.

A few things to do would be replace your fuel filter and air filters. Check the spark plugs as well. Keep up on the maintenance and gas mileage should return to normal.

The isuzu rodeo is supposed to make an average of 18 mpg and i´m getting 12 mpg


Driving habits can cause the average mpg to be lower.
Also, note that highway mpg are higher than the city mpg.
And, the posted average mileage is no guarantee that your car
will get that good mileage per gallon

That being said, it's a good idea to have tuneups performed
periodically, or to have an engine analysis performed at your dealer
or local auto service center so that you can determine what parts
need to be replaced to get optimal mileage per gallon.

Good luck to you.

Poor Gas Mileage


its on the fire wall yes it will help some i wouldnt expect a drastic change in fuel economy because acura dosent have a replacement schedule for fuel filters like most car companies. id check your air filter and if your check engine light is on it will seriously kill your mpg. hope this helps

My 1993 chevy luminagets lousy gas mileage,when it runs you smell


. If you are in the car driving and smell fuel, chances are the leak in FRONT of you under the hood, probably being drawn in, by the heater or a/c. Open the hood and look for WETNESS. Don't see or smell it. Get UNDER the car ( safely ). Look around at the fuel lines. You'll find if you look. Hope this helps

BAD ON GAS


You should be getting close to 360-390...depending on the type of driving you are doing. Increasing your gas mileage could be as simple as getting a fresh oil and filter job, change your air filter, change your fuel filter...and a biggie believe it or not, make sure you have the proper tire pressure. This will kill your mileage faster than anything else.

City MPG: 16-18 mpg
Combination MPG: 18-21
Highway MPG: Approximately 26 mpg

2007 honda cr-v gets lousy mileage


Hi, sounds excessive to me. For comparison my 2003 2litre petrol gives average 29mpg no matter how or where I drive it. You need to check over 4 to 5 tank re-fills (don't count the first tank-full)
Just a guess, but is the 4 wheel drive permanently engaged?
