Most likely suspect is the carb

However, I'd start with your basic tune-up first...

  • replace spark plugs
  • replace spark plug wires
  • replace Dist cap and rotor
  • replace fuel filter
  • replace air filter
  • change oil
  • adjust timing and base idle speed
  • adjust fuel mixture (if available)

Hi. Im writing this because when my" distance till empty" feature reaches 30 it just goes blank. So im wondering how many miles I truly have left and why it never reaches 0?

normally that occurs because the gas in the tank is too low ans sloshing around and the sensor is not able to give an accurate estimate of distance to empty, remember those are just rough estimates ans should never gallons leftbe relied on to be accurate to the last few miles by the time it says 20 miles you probably have 1 to 1-1/2 gallons of gas left

Gas tank size , gas gage does not work , how many miles to the gallon the grand caravan get?

The gas tank capacity is 20 US gallons, but the tank will really only hold about 19.5 gallons. As far as mileage goes that really depends on your driving habits and the load it carries, just you? more? I would think that your average miles to the gallon would be in the range of 14-16 town and highway.
Here is the EPA ratings, which never match the real world gas mileage.

there is a book publish by the govnt or minister of transport on the exact milage as well if you know how many liters or gallons go in your tank like 80 liters and the gas is 1.00 a liter it cost $80 for 80 liters on a full tank you do 500 km but make sure proper conditions of 100km a hour tires all proper equal pressure the wind is also a facture there is a lot involved to calculate your gas proformance as well if you had a oil change done latly you can find out on a govt site for gas consuption or consumers report

How many miles to the gallon a 1997 buick riviera get to the gallon

There are a lot of answers to your question. Is the engine super charged? 3.4 or 3.8 engine? Driving styles and climate temps have a big impact on vehicle miles per gallon. Types of gas, vehicle alignment, tire pressures, vehicle condition, transmission qualities. So there are factors in this question that you have asked. It should vary, generally speaking, city 16-20 and hwy 22-30. I hope this helps shine some light on the variables of your question. Craig
