Take the car to your local dealer or technician and have them check for trouble codes. If none are present, check/replace your air filter. If that doesn't solve the problem, you might be a victim of E85 unleaded gasoline. Ethynol has about 30% less energy content than undiluted gasoline. That means you need to burn about 30% more E85 to get the same amount of work out of the engine. Your loss so far is about 22%...have you switched fuel suppliers?

My fuel gage indicator does not work


The level sensor is inside the gas tank. A mechanic will need to drop the tank to work on it. Some cars can be done from above. In the meantime, find out how many mpg your car does and multiply it with the tank size. Fill your gas tank, reset your odometer. Keep an eye on the miles you drive and fill up before it reaches the max mileage.

This is on a 2002 isuzu rodeo


To many things will cause fuel mileage to drop. First thing to do is read the codes(write them down). Erase them, them read them again. If it a code comes right back, check it first. No codes, drive it for 10 minutes or so, Check codes again. If they reappear check them . Some codes only come back after driving two times.

Drop in gas milage with drop in altitude


I would guess your car was built to the Emission Standards
for your state,altitude etc

Still a big drop in mpg

If you ever moved, you may need your computer software
reflashed for lower elevation

I would guess the MAF Sensor was out of it's range

Check to see if any codes were stored
Need professional scanner

Look at freeze frame data unless you have been back for weeks

Loss of mpg's


DEPENDING ON THE MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE ID OF YOUR VEHICLE GAS MILEGE WILL VARY. ALL VEHICLES TEND TO LOSE EFFICIENCY WITH AGE AND MILEGE ON THE ODOMETER. ONE MILEGE ROBBING ASPECT OF THIS IS THAT THE E.G.R. SYSTEM ( exhaust gas recirculation), TENDS TO BUILD UP CARBON DEPOSITS WHICH RESTICT OR IN WORST CASES BLOCK THE FLOW OF UNBURNT EMISSIONS BACK TO THE INTAKE. ALSO, THIS CONDITION FORMS IN THE AIR INLET, AND VALVE PORTS. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU ADDED INJECTOR CLEANERS TO YOUR FUEL. M.G.

BAD ON GAS


You should be getting close to 360-390...depending on the type of driving you are doing. Increasing your gas mileage could be as simple as getting a fresh oil and filter job, change your air filter, change your fuel filter...and a biggie believe it or not, make sure you have the proper tire pressure. This will kill your mileage faster than anything else.

City MPG: 16-18 mpg
Combination MPG: 18-21
Highway MPG: Approximately 26 mpg

Poor gas mileage on my jeep liberty


change your spark plugs if they haven't been changed in awhile. check your tires for the propper psi there should be a sticker on the inside of your drivers door that will tell you recomended air pressures go by this not the recomendations on the tires. also where are you getting you gas does it contain ethanol sometimes this can burn faster.
