Without asking for a clarification on exactly on how your mileage has deteriorated...

Seems like a fairly drastic decrease in mileage, so:

Give the vehicle a tune-up, or at the very least..go over all the usual components involved in a tune-up to see which are ok and which maybe not.

Air filter, sparkplugs, wires, etc..and everyone forgets to change their pvc valve. Do that.

Test the vehicles "free-roll ability".

Next time u are on a hill , shift the vehicle into N.

Does it feel like something is holding the vehicle back on the free roll?

Could be one of your brake components hasn't fully released, i.e: the parking brake may be in the full release position, but mechanically not fully released..or a caliper or hasn't fully pulled back.

A bad wheel bearing can cause issues that way if you drive alot..
Listen for anywheel noise with the radio/stereo off .

Check the tune-up end of things first....then, should the issue persist,
pull the wheels...

Good luck.

2002 chevy blazer fuel consumption


Usually when it comes to bad gas mileage, an air filter change, fresh oil and filter, fuel filter and making sure you have no vacuum leaks....

Also, believe it or not, improper tire pressure will affect your gas mileage.

New spark plugs and wires are a "nicety" but if there is not damage to them, then they will be fine.

Gas consumption


Is this a new problem? If so, I'd check/replace the catalytic converter. They clog if bad gas gets into them. Performance is usually affected. If the car has alot of mileage, replace all the oxygen sensors...they affect fuel mix. Change your oil to a 5-20 oil. Change your air filter. Change your plugs if more than 70K miles. Check tire pressure (Mr. Obama is right!) Check wheel alignment by looking at tire wear. Repair any loose front end parts. Check brakes for excessive drag...does the vehicle stop straight???? Use Techron additive to clean fuel injectors following instructions. Finally, do you use your brakes alot? Fast starts? On/off the gas alot? Drive smoothly!
