Heavy driving(flooring it all the time)
Binding rear brakes, fuel leak, timing out a little, blocked or dirty air filter, spark plugs at wrong gap or old /faulty, or wrong grade of fuel.
Look at all the options and you may find the cause to be just a small adjustment, or cheap repair.

2006 Cadillac cts is burning gas faster than the normal rate after i got an oil change at jiffy lube 2 weeks ago


I dont think there is a connection between an oil change and the gallons per mile.
With that age car, I suggest a Terra engine clean. It will blow away nine years of gunk from the spark plugs, fuel injectors, cylinders and exhaust. Should give you more power, more miles..

Does bad spark plugs burn gas faster


First question is yes bad or worn plugs can burn more gas to generate the same amount of power.
Second question, you could fill up the tank and record the mileage, then fill it up again when it measures half a tank and compare.
If the gas gauge is working correctly it should take half the total number of gallons the tank holds to fill it up again. And the miles you drove divided by the number of gallons used equals your gas mileage.

I have a 2008 a4 audi, it uses 1 qt of oil between changes, is this normal


it is within factory specs to burn more than a quart of oil within 2500 miles it is also common with oil changes are done at small and quick oil change places that the oil is not filled to the max level making it look like it burns more than it does and not using synthetic oil as required asl makes a difference

I am filling up 4 times out of the week instead of 2 times can you tell me what that is from


could be a leak. (look for gas puddles under your vehicle daily & have your oil pan drained to check for gas inthe oil pan)
could be your fuel mixture is to rich burning to much fuel0.
could be someone is stealing gas from your tank. (get a key lock on your gas cap if you dont have one yet.)
could be your driving more then you normally do. (monitor your miles driven versus how much gas you burn and figure out your miles per gallon to see if it is off something drastic)

Car started only after several cranks, was told fuel pump replacement, is it normal with 68,000 miles?


You probably have a submersable pump. If you have run the gas on below 1/4 tank for some time, you probably burned out the pump. Alway fill up 1/2 tank or more.

And with the mileage, it isn't unusual to replace the pump.

I bought a used 2003 A4 Convertible Audi 3.0 Feels it burns more gas than expected. Is there anything I can check or do to reduce that. Thanks Sean


to see what you get for mileage, take it to a gas station and fill it till the pump stops and reset your trip meter. Drive it around like you normally would to work or whatever till the tank is almost empty and go fill it up again till the pump stops. Its best to go to the same pump you used before. Once it is full look to see how many gallons or liters you put in(This is how many you used since the last time you filled up). Take the number of miles/kilometers from your trip meter(the number of miles/kilometers you drove since you last filled up) and divide it by the gallons/liters you used and you will get your miles/kilometers per gallon/liter. Compare this with the rating your vehicle is suppose to get. But remember it can very depending on how you drive.
Miles/kilometers divided by gallons/liters

Oil consumption


They say that that is normal to burn some oil. I use Moble 1 full synethic oil, and it quit using oil, because synethic will not burn.

Just bought a 2006 jeep gand cherokee limited 4.7 liter v8 with 77 miles i t seems to be burning gas very quickly actually to fast what could cause this ?


if you mean bad gas mileage (and only 77 miles on it) the engine isn't broken in yet, its still tight. it will take time to break it in, and you should see your mileage start to improve. check your intake and air cleaner, could be clogged.
