SOURCE: How many gallons per hour does this car lose?

at the begging u should clarify how many gallon u used.
112 miles at 28 miles per gallon --> 4 gallons burned (112/28)
So that means we leaked 11 - 4 = 7 gallons

Now figure out how long the car was driving.
112 miles at 64 miles per hour --> 1.75 hours

So, leak was at a rate of 7 gallons in 1.75 hours
7/1.75 = 4 gallons per hour leaked.

SOURCE: Unleaded gas in a diesel fuel tank

do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.

2004 Chevy trailblazer loss of drivetrain power

Okay, please describe the problem more fully (need engine type, miles, description of power loss, etc); in the meantime, here are some common power-robbers:

Bad O2 sensors. Just changed mine on my 03 5.3 LS-motor Sierra, and power went from mundane pickup truck with 145,000-mi to high thrust similar to my \'11 Camaro SS/RS. Yes, it makes that big a difference. About $25-50 each, and most modern V6 or V8 vehicles have 4.

Dirty throttle body. Easy enough to clean your self, but you will need the environmentally-NOT-friendly cleaner (about $6 or less per can at parts stores--get 2 cans). LET DRY COMPLETELY--1 HOUR MINIMUM--BEFORE STARTING. Same effect on power as O2 sensors. Usually about $100 or less for Chevy vehicles.

Dirty or bad Mass Air Flow sensor. Clean with same stuff as for throttle body. Similar effect on power. LET DRY COMPLETELY--1 HOUR MINIMUM--BEFORE STARTING. If bad, this won\'t help.

Dirty fuel injectors. Use high-quality injector cleaner (usually about $6 or less per bottle at parts stores), or bite the bullet and let the dealer do the professional injector service, usually <$150 at a Chevy dealer. Any dealer work on Chevrolet vehicles, it makes sense to have the Chevy dealer and not the Ford or Billy Bob\'s Tobaccy Chaw garage do it. Many, many of us mechanics are qualified and trained, but many, many are not.

Bad gas. This is a deal-killer, and it is even worse than you know, because bad gas--even one time--usually kills the in-tank fuel pump. Bad gas is gasoline that has somehow gotten water in it. By the way, NO DEALER EVER SELLS "WATERED-DOWN" GAS, no matter what you have heard all your life, even if your Daddy told you that. The reason is simple chemistry and economics: gas and water do not mix, water does not burn, and water causes immediate spitting, missing, bucking, farting, and twitching, kills fuel pumps and catalytic converters and fouls plugs and O2 sensors, and costs hundreds to repair. Water does accidentally end up in underground fuel tanks, however, and usually as the result of the fuel deliverer not sealing the caps after a delivery, followed by a rain or hose activity in the station lot. Water is not the only definition of \'bad gas\'--I recently repaired a vehicle that the fuel deliverer had accidentally poisoned with diesel fuel--he either forgot to clear his hose after filling the underground diesel tank, or just put diesel in the gas tank, but this car\'s tank was FULL of diesel after fueling from an island that doesn\'t even have a diesel pump on it--I checked the station myself. Contaminated fuel can cost you thousands of dollars, so always buy gas at a reputable, name-brand station, and smell the nozzle before you add fuel. You won\'t catch water this way, but you will catch diesel.

Stopped-up or internally-fractured catalytic converters. This one is REALLY expensive, and it DOES happen. Converters don\'t last forever, and they can be killed by you or by your fuel. Bad gas or even misfiring kills modern catalytic converters right now--like yesterday-fast--and there is no fix but replacement, usually costs about $300-2900 (that\'s right) to repair, depending on vehicle, catalytic converter type and quantity. Buying gas for even 10 cents a gallon cheaper really doesn\'t save you squat...the average tanks hold something less than 20 gallons. Even at 20 gallons, 10-cent cheaper gas saves you TWO WHOLE DOLLARS per $2 a tank off worth possibly $3000 in repairs due to bad gas?

Please ask for help performing any of these repairs if you feel like you can do them with a little coaching, and please be more specific in describing vehicle problems. You can even say "It makes this chick-chick-chicky sound," and a good mechanic can get insight from that. You don\'t have to be as technical as us.

I am getting approximately 10 MPG in my 1994 GMC Sonoma. It is a V6, 4.3l. I took it to a car shop and he said it looks like it has had a recent tune-up - I bought it about a month ago. He suggested a BG...

To tell you the truth, you aren't far off from normal, depending on what kind of driving you are doing. I have owned 3 of these and they all average 12MPG around town. Driving habits have a lot of effect too.

Vehicle Tips
· Keep your tires properly inflated, and check them frequently.1
· Keep your front suspension and steering in proper alignment.
· Use the thinnest viscosity oil that your car's manufacturer recommends (5W-30 for most newer cars).
· Keep your engine in proper mechanical condition.
· Keep your engine in tune and make sure the air and fuel filters are clean.
· Make sure your brakes are not dragging.
· Repair body damage. That crunched front fender adds aerodynamic drag - just ask any race car driver.
· Don't use premium fuel if your car does not require it (check your owner's manual); using it is an unnecessary expense.
· Don't waste your money on those late night "as seen on TV" products that are supposed to increase your mileage.
Driving Tips
· Avoid excessive warm-up time. Modern engines do not require it.
· Don't idle your engine for long periods. Turn off your engine when you leave the car or have to wait a long time.
· Avoid jack-rabbit starts.
· Keep your speed at 55 miles per hour or less whenever possible.
· For newer vehicles with aerodynamic designs, close the windows and turn on the A/C when driving on the freeway.
· For older cars with inefficient A/C compressors, use the ventilation system and close the windows, temperature permitting.
· Anticipate merging traffic and stoplights - decelerate and accelerate smoothly.
· Plan your trips wisely. If you need to go several places, plan a route that allows you to run most or all of your errands in one outing.
· Empty the trunk! Extra clothes, overdue library books, tools and the bag of aluminum cans that you have been meaning to take to the recycler all weigh down your car unnecessarily
· Car pool whenever possible or practical.
· Listen to radio reports for alternate routes around congested areas.
· Drive in the highest gear possible (without lugging the engine).
· Try to keep your speed constant. Use cruise control when on long stretches of road.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, nearly four million gallons of gasoline could be saved nationwide each day for every one pound per square inch (psi) of tire under-inflation, compared to the mileage if ALL vehicle tires were kept inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that for 145 million passenger vehicles idling five minutes per day, approximately four million gallons of gasoline are consumed without going anywhere.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a vehicle loses about one percent in fuel economy for every one mile per hour above 55 m.p.h. that it is driven. A passenger car that averages 30 miles per gallon at 55 m.p.h. could typically get 28.5 m.p.g. at 60 m.p.h., 27 m.p.g. at 65 m.p.h. and 25.5 m.p.g. at 70 m.p.h. Remember, however, that for different speeds, the changes in fuel economy will vary by vehicle model.
Each 100 pounds of needless weight will cost up to one-half mile per gallon, on the average.

2004 dodge 2500 5.9 diesel code p0148 high fuel pressure

if you are usung any kind of tuner, turn it down. too much rail pressure leads to failed injectors. look into a good lift pump, at least one hundred gallons per hour flow rate.

I have a FORD Econolinen 1993. When I drive he abuse 45 ltres of gaz on 100 miles . Is this normale ?

on normal that trk should be around 6-7 gallons used per one hundred miles drove. i based that at 15 mpg. now that is also based on a V8 engine. now 1 gallon of gas is 3.78541178 liters which totals 12 galons of gas to 45.42494136 liters. This would mean that it took 12 gallons of gas to travel 100 miles which totals 8.3333333333 mpg. not as good as i would have thought. 8 miles per gallon (mpg) hell that engine must be a big block 460. If it is that big cubic inch i could understand but any other motor should do better mpg than 8.3. so i agree that is not normal, tune up, or look for fuel leak in the fuel supply or( feed ) line. From the tank to the motor. This must be a canadian truck yes? well hope for the best or trade that guzzler in for a new breed. stay warm!

What weight oil should I be using???

now ford has came out with a memo recommending 5w20. Ford Motor Company reports that the company's switch from recommending 5W-30 viscosity motor oil to 5W-20 viscosity motor oil has saved 700 million gallons of gasoline since 2000. By reducing load and internal friction, lighter viscosity 5W-20 motor oils reportedly increase fuel economy by a half mile per gallon. In addition, Ford reports its use of 5W-20 oils has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by about one million metric tons a year.
Note: Ford issued a TSB (technical service bulletin TSB 02-1-9) regarding the 5w20 superseding 5w30 Owners Manual specifications. Applies to the majority of the car products back to the early 1990's.

So in short in your manual it may say 5w30 but now they recommend using 5w20.
if you need further assistance please let me know, Thanks, MIDwest-TEK

Just got an 1998 Isuzu Wizard (diesel), some times

It sounds like the fuel is gelled, is it cold where you are and what are running for fuel? If your in freezing weather you should be running blended fuel, straight No.2 will gel at about 25 degrees (F). Take a hair dryer or heat gun and warm the fuel filter up. Or if you can get in warm garage and get it started thin the diesel with kerosene, about 2 gallons to 20 gallons of diesel. Then drive it for at least five miles so the kerosene gets circulated through the system. I've used gasoline to do this too, but only use about 1 gallon to 20 gallons of diesel.

Daughter put "diesel Fuel" into 2003 ford taurus. What's the best way to drain fuel tank?

the easiest way is to lift the car and unhook the fuel filter and cycle the fuel pump to push it out of the tank. you may have to cycle the key quite a few times to get it out but is easier than dropping the tank to empty it. if you crank the starter for a second the pump will run longer each cycle should get a couple gallons per cycle from the fuel line.
