That service engine soon light is the same thing as a check engine light. You need to get the codes read so you can fix the problem. when a critical sensor quits working the engine will either stay or revert back to closed loop mode which is the mode it uses when cold. So it uses a lot more fuel just like it does when cold. The codes stored by the computer should say which sensor has malfunctioned.

A friend is wanting to sell me a 95 Olds Aurora but says it needs a fan. Should I buy?

If the radiator fan is inoperable it will need to be replaced immediately. It is also likely that the owner has been driving the vehicle in this condition which would cause engine overheating and potentially expensive engine damage.

I would not purchase the vehicle. In any event a car of this age will have covered over 100000 miles and you will find that there are numerous mechanical items which break down and need replacing to keep the car on the road and roadworthy. You will be buying a repair bill.

Look for a good low mileage 4 or 6 cylinder car and never purchase or hand over any money to a vendor without first obtaining a thorough mechanical inspection of the vehicle.

Avoid V8s as these guzzle the fuel (especially the older models like this Olds aurora) and offer poor miles per gallon except in slow to moderate speed highway use. Gas prices will soon be over $4.00 a gallon once more and you probably don't want to be stuck with a guzzler unless fuel costs are not an issue for you.

How many gallons per hour does this car lose?

at the begging u should clarify how many gallon u used.
112 miles at 28 miles per gallon --> 4 gallons burned (112/28)
So that means we leaked 11 - 4 = 7 gallons

Now figure out how long the car was driving.
112 miles at 64 miles per hour --> 1.75 hours

So, leak was at a rate of 7 gallons in 1.75 hours
7/1.75 = 4 gallons per hour leaked.
