Make sure your wheels are aligned properly. Bad wheel alignment is when you are going on a flat stretch of road and you momentarily let go of the steering wheel . If it's out of alignment the car will pull toward the side . Check the air pressure on your tires. Low pressure on your tires slows down the car and drags making it use more power. So, the wheels have a lot to do with the gas milage.

Also give the car a tune up. Check that it is not missing or not running smooth.

Go the speed limit. I know we all want to get where we want to go in the least amount of time. But running the engine faster then we need to wastes more gas.
Finally, on the JC Whitney.com site they sell a devise that people say they get much better milage out of it. It costs about 36.00 but is worth it according to many people. I intend to try this thing myself. see how it goes.

94 4.3 vortec getting horrible gas mileage why???


Go to You Tube Video to find the problems
with that motor & the solution
A local repair shop can check bulletins in their
data base for the fix also
Most likely intake gasket,if you use Dex Cool
It eats gaskets & the vehicle is old ,so you can expect
to be constantly working on it

Will a new carbuator on a 1985 F-150 really improve my mileage


It is against federal regulations to remove anything at all,
from any vehicle.

Doing so, may hurt more than help, unless you
understand the technology your removing

A new carb is not the answer

Rebuilding yours yourself ,may make it start & run smoother,
but every day all vehicles wear & get less mileage,even brand
new ones.

All ford trucks from 1960 to this day have gotten 13 mpg at most

I would like to know how to get better gas mileage on a car-do I need a new air filter-it is only a 4 cylinder car.


The best way to improve gas mileage is to change your driving habits. K&N filters claim they can increase mileage, but there really is not 'miracle device' that can do so. Make sure the vehicle is running well, plugs and wires are all in good shape, air and fuel filters are clean.

Stay on highways as much as possible, and drive around with a glass of water that has no lid and is filled pretty high. Attempt to drive without spilling the water. This will drastically improve economy.

Bad gas mileage i filled my car with 91 octane i live in canada its $1.20 a liter right now and i got 274 kilometers to that tank is there something wrong with my car ?


If your car is at 80k miles or more, first change out the oxygen sensor. Their life-span is only 80-100K miles. (not sure what that is in KMs.

This is what provides feedback to the computer to fine-tune the air/fuel mixture. When this fails, you will run a rich mixture and get worse gas mileage (or literage as you might say)

Poor gas mileage in a 2008 Saturn Hybrid Vue


You are always going to get worse gas mileage with E85 than regualr gasoline.  My sister has a colbalt and she mixes 1/2 gas and 1/2 e85.  The dealer told her she could do this to improve mileage.  I would not try it in your car unless you check with the dealer first, it could mess your engine up if you do it.  If you are getting that mileage with gasoline, then i would change spark plugs to bosch platnium 2 or something that allows more spark.
