Per Edmund's.com your car should do 23-38 mpg. to know your exact usage fill up the tank and write down how many gallons it took to fill it up and zero the trip mileage, drive til the tank is empty ( do not get stranded) do your math miles/gallons this is your true usage it should fall within 23-38 mpg and that is 45% hwy driving and 55% city driving. if you are getting below 23 then you need to do a tune up like change air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, oil change using 1 part synthetic oil, proper tire pressure ( low tire pressure cause you to use more gas).

2002 Beetle Engine cuts out after it warms up for a few hours.


Hello,
my advise to you is that:
Your VW problem is the throttle body, (good news) it doesn't need replacement, it only needs to be cleaned out, and even better if a good technician (know what he is doing) can run an adaptation procedure.
this will restore the ZERO position for the TPS and relearn the target engine idle speed.
Good luck.
Note: you are in my prayer.

2007 kia rondo seems to use alot of gas


I have the same issue of low gas mileage. My 2008 Kia Rondo with V6 (2.7Lt) gets 20-21 mpg in average. Even for highway mileage, it is around 21-22mpg. Very poor gas mileage. Disappointed. I hope it would improve in the future.

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!
