It will have some effect on your mileage. The engine will run cooler which will tell the computer to enrich the gas mixture to compensate. The effect will probably be noticable but not exteme. Hope this helps.

Yes, engine is more efficient when warm. Thermostat gets engine warm much faster.

I have a 2005 honda accord and the fuel consumption is too high what is the cause and the solution to handle it.


The first thing is to check for fuel leaks and for restricted intake or exhaust and ensure the routine maintenance is up to date.

It is important to know what the current fuel consumption is in miles per gallon or km per litre. The modern trend of paying set amounts of money gives a wholly false impression of actual fuel consumption.

When checked accurately over a period and averaged to take account of different types of driving conditions, freezing temperatures and so forth, mostly the result is found to be not as bad as first imagined.

If all checks are found to be ok and the accurately checked consumption is still too high further checks will be needed.

A few possible faults are incorrect fuel pressures, bad injectors, incorrect valve timing, "tired" oxygen sensors, bad thermostat, "tired" temperature sensors...

Wheel alignment, tyre pressures and binding brakes can also be factors...

My toyota 7k efi manual transmission.i changed oil filter,air cleaner spark plugs the fuel consumption is very high.than it was at the begining fuel consumption was 15km/pr litre, its now 9km/litre.


check for codes and data readings. check O2 sensor readings, is the thermostat tired and not working properly, this can cause high fuel consumption. take a close look at who and how the car is being driven.

My car is consuming too much fuel


Possible but not probable. Depends on how much "too much" fuel consumption to you is, and what other maintenance you have neglected. There are many, many reasons for poor fuel economy. Start with a good tune up then see how the fuel consumption is. Worn shocks may have some effect in that they wheels may often lose contact with the surface, spin excessively and thus, burn more fuel but this isn't a major factor in fuel consumption normally. It's more apt to be one of many other factors going on with your vehicle. Check and/or replace spark plugs, fuel injectors, air filter, PCV, oil & oil filter, and any other items recommended for your vehicle's scheduled maintenance for the mileage your vehicle has.

I have no heat


I would assume that the thermostat has stuck open and is not allowing the engine to build up to temperature.
This will have adverse effects on engine performance, including accelerated wear and increased fuel consumption. You should remove the thermostat and check the size of the gap in the valve body. If it's even open the slightest amount, then it's allowing the water to constantly flow in and out of the engine block.

Can i drive my rodeo with a stuck open thermostat whats down fall


YOU WILL LOT OF FUEL CONSUMPTION. A OPEN OR MISSING THERMOSTAT WILL CAUSE VECHICLE STAY IN OPEN LOOP.ENGINE WILL BURN RICH BURN MORE FUEL.YOUR THERMOSTAT ALLOWS COOLANT TEMPERATURE TO GET AT A SET POINT WHERE ECM OR PCM ADJUST FUEL SYSTEM FROM OPEN LOOP RICH MIXTURE FOR COLD ENGINE TO CLOSED LOOP TO LEAN OUT FUEL SYSTEM AS ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE GET HOT.YOU NEED TO REPLACE THERMOSTAT.OPEN THERMOSTAT WILL CAUSE NO HEAT PROBLEMS ALSO.

Car is using more significantly more fuel lately. new spark plugs cleaned MAF sensor. no obvious fuel leaks. car seems to be underperforming at random times. What's causing the increase in fuel...


a fuel pump will not increase fuel consumption unless there is a leak,which you say there is none.a change in driving habits can increase it without knowing the habits have changed.some times poor gas quality can cause this or when a fuel company changes its additives when switching from a winter type mixture to a summer mixture.if the thermostat hasn`t been changed for a long time this can cause an increase if fuel consumption,as the coolant sensor will send a signal to the computer that the engine is not up to operating temperature and it needs to increase injector on time(spray more fuel).a tired coolant sensor(rarely),the throttle position sensor(tps)can cause this(on rare occasions)possibly a partially plugged fuel filter as you have to push on the gas farther to get enough fuel to accelerate the car.

1994 1.6L Suzuki Sidekick has excessive fuel consumption. 24L/100km or 9.8 MPG. Catalytic converter has been removed by previous owner. Could this be the cause?


It could be if it is equipped with fuel injection. There would be oxygen sensors that are getting some strange readings that would effect fuel mixture. i`m not sure if a `94 would have them but would be easy to look and see.

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.
