    16 mpg-city-max tire pressure-no hauling-just my saturn-90 degrees F.

  • dheidbrink Sep 10, 2009

    I was around 20-24 about 3 months ago and it seemed to drop within one fillup.

    20-24 in town i really doubt that, if there was a problem with the fuel system the check engine light would be on, suggest you did the math wrong.

    16 MPG in the city is not poor fuel mileage, sorry but that is based on other cars like yours, what did you expect in town?.

    WHAT IS THE MPG? WHAT TYPE OF DRIVING, ARE TIRES AT MAX PRESSURE? WHAT KIND OF LOADS ARE YOU HAULING, JUST U OR MORE PEOPLE? WHAT ATRE THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES YOU ARE DRIVING IN?

These are the most common causes for bad mileage.
Tire pressure is a huge factor (Tire should be set at the factory recommendation or 1-2 psi above, but never below - Tire should also be a Low Rolling Resistance Tire)
Oil level (you said it's OK, so I assume it's not above the full mark)
Running extra accessories (A/C, etc)
Dirty Air Filter
bad Ignition timing
engine running hotter than normal
fuel injectors may be stuck partially open
bad fuel pressure regulator
faulty emission control device (this usually triggers a check engine light)

Poor gas milage


Gas milage will vary, depending on the manner in which you drive, also poor gas milage could be due to poor maintenance. Replace the PCV valve, the oxygen sensors, the fuel filter, plugs and wires, and have the injectors cleaned, switch to synthetic oil should improve the milage. .
