You have not told us what make and model you have. How can anyone tell you how to reduce fuel use in your car if we don't know what kind of car you have. Try driving like you have your kid's hamster under your foot and don't want to kill it.

Excessive fuel consumption what can I do at home to fix this problem


Check for a fuel leak:
1. Park the car on a clean concrete surface.
2. See if any fuel is leaking out on the underside of the vehicle.

There really are a variety of things that could cause this problem including: bad fuel filter, damaged fuel lines, or damaged fuel tank.

Another way to improve fuel consumption are getting a clean air filter.

Jeep wrangler is using too much gas


I have a 4cyl 97 jeep wrangler. My fuel economy went from 75-80 miles per 1/4 tank to 55-60 miles per 1/4 tank of gas. I traced this to a bad coolant temp sensor (replace twice), and fouled O2 sensors believed caused by my self by placing too much oil on spector air filter (now wipe off excess and let dry in sun), and using carb cleaner and or gas treatment (stopped using). fuel economy went back up to 75-85 miles per 1/4 tank. (also disruption of sensor input/output signals didn't help from battery sliding into computer wiring harness, which I cured by placing a 1" spacer on rear clamp to keep battery away from computer.)

Obvious things first. replace your air cleaner, fuel filter and put in a good quality fuel injection cleaner. do this for at least two fuel tank loads. Clean the injectors and make sure your engine is tuned. It will be fine after that...

Uses excessive fuel


Brakes could be binding or hand bake cable holding on but you think youd smell burning brakes if that was the case!What condition is the oxy sensor in ,maybe carboned up and contaminated which can tell the engine management to supply more fuel than required.is the air filter air box in good condition and air box lid securely fastened.Should be sealed from air box to throttle body If the air filter is clogged and dirty that can lead to excess fuel consumption.Have you installed any injector cleaner in the fuel tank.cleans up dirty injectors thst can cause excess fuel consumption.
