SOURCE: volvo s40 1.8 gdi excessive fuel consumption

You're going to have to figure out what's causing the misfire. The car is almost 10 years old, so change the plugs to start with. If you still have a misfire, go to auto zone and have them pull the codes to find out which cylinder is the issue. Then figure out fuel or spark? Coil or injector? Was there a lean code? Check for a vacuum leak. Change the fuel filter and air filter for maintanence. The cruise control may be another issue.

Do you have black smoke or what looks like soot coming out of the tail pipe. The check engine light monitors fuel pressure through the computer and pressure regulator. It will come on if the pump pressure is too high or too low. If the pressure regulator is faulty it could cause excessive fuel consumption,

Excessive consumption of fuel of daewoo matiz and cutting off

Sounds like the Oxygen sensor in the exhaust may not be working effectively. Check the connections and wiring running to it. The Oxygen sensor only starts to work when hot so be careful. The sensor outputs a pulse of voltage when the engine is running. If the voltage output is steady then it needs replacing.

Uses excessive fuel

Brakes could be binding or hand bake cable holding on but you think youd smell burning brakes if that was the case!What condition is the oxy sensor in ,maybe carboned up and contaminated which can tell the engine management to supply more fuel than the air filter air box in good condition and air box lid securely fastened.Should be sealed from air box to throttle body If the air filter is clogged and dirty that can lead to excess fuel consumption.Have you installed any injector cleaner in the fuel tank.cleans up dirty injectors thst can cause excess fuel consumption.
