Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The most common cause of poor fuel economy will be an improperly tuned engine. I recommend a full scale tune up, if not done so already. This is a good starting point. Here is a list that will assist further.
1. Fuel additive. Try adding an additive to scrub the fuel delivery system and motor crank case. A great additive will be Sea Foam. This is a single can additive. Once you have purchased this additive, simply pour half into the fuel tank, and the other half into the engine crank case. The additive is great for cleaning engine sludge, and carbon deposits as well.
2. Fuel Filter. If you filter has not been replaced recently, i would advise to preform the replacement, asap. a dirty, or clogged fuel filter will lower your MPG rate, and cause stalling as well. replace this filter if needed.
3.Vacuum Leaks. Verify that there are no leaks within the vacuum system. replace any lines that are worn, or cracked
4.Air Filter. Paper filters are good, but not great. I recommend replacing your standard air filter with an oil based air filter(K&N). this will increase the air flow, and improve combustion, as well. It will Give your engine a slight HP boost, also.
5. Tire pressure. Improperly inflated drive tires will affect your MPG. make sure your tires are inflated to the proper factory specs at all times. This will help.
