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

If I leave my 2001 Kia Optima running while I pump gas, it dies and is hard to start. After it does start it starts fine until I get gas again,

It is possible that the Vapor recovery system (VRS) does not like your opening the gas cap while running the car. It also doesn't like over filling the tank, as both of these situations cause it to think there is a vapor problem and sends a signal the computer making the fuel system freak out. and it is ussually not strong enough of a problem to set off the engine light. Have a diag done, and reset the code, if one is found. Most part stores will do this. If the VRS is severely compromised , then a new one is in need. Did you also note a small drop in MPG?

SUDDEN LOSS OF MPG AFTER DEAD BATTERY Hello. We have a 1999 Plymouth Voyager. Wonderful vehicle -- well engineered and comfortable. Last year our mileage dropped suddenly from 36 mpg to 24 following...

When the battery went dead you engine control module lost all learned programming, drive it for a few weeks as normal to restore this and the mileage will be back to normal.

Hi , I am considering purchasing a 1986 Land Rover County wagon (110 Defender), the engine is a petrol V8. What sort of fuel consumption should I expect or can you direct me to a www that may have that...

The car you are looking into has the same engine as this car (link) The gas millage on that car would be 12MPG (city), 14MPG (highway) and a combined gas millage of 13 MPG. Hope it helps and please rate the answer if it was helpful to you, thanks!

Car Dies suddenly, May **** and jump at constant speed,

what is the year mahe and model of your jumpy jerkey car? is it throttle body injection carborated ot electronic fuel injection ?have you taken the fuel rail or line loose and tried blowing it out with a strong blast of compressed air ??if you changed the fuel filter and it was dirty and you say you changed the tank and fuel pump you more than likely
are experiancing what they often refer to as butterfly action in your fuel line or your injectors are plugging up sounds to me more like a piece of rust or something of that nature doing a little gate or butterfly trick on you .. a single piece of rust can cause trouble for years if it is big enough and in the right position in the fuel line.. take your fuel line loose at the tank, both ends of the filter and the injector rail and with a strong compressor blow backwards through the fuel line,both from the engine to the filter end and from the other filter end to the tank (caution ) ( caution ) do not i say do not blow compressed air backwards through the fuel pump you will blow a hole in the diaphram and ruin the pump adding to the expense or your repairs dramaticly..
if that dont do the trick my next suggestion would be get the code connector fixed and get a good reading on the computer more thing how good are you with elictrical ? it could be a short in the ignition switch or wires going to it keep me posted we will try to get it sorted out for you good luck and i hope this helps

2001 Toyota Echo Fuel consumption

EPA mileage figures are estimates, and seldom does it have anything to do with the real world, My new car is rated at 19 city and 28 hiway, it gets 22 MPG max. The only thing you can do is make sure the pressure in the tires is correct and run the recommened oil, keep the car in good running order.
