My Car is Toyota Camry 1989 V6 1. What is the standard fuel consumption for car at this stage? 2. How to check the fuel consumption per litre? 3. I think the fuel consumption is very high. How to improve the fuel efficiency?
Imagine if it works - raise your fuel mileage to 21+ in stop n go driving, up tp 35+, maybe 40 mpg with a steady low cruise on the highway, at 60-62 mph.
only costs $170-$200 if you can do it yourself, if you can change pcv / oxygen sensors / plugs / fuel filters, YOU can do it.
Else, pay a mechanic an extra $200 for 2 hours work for him/her to install in 45 minutes.
2. There are a few ways to do this, here's one -
- Fill your gas tank to the very top.
- Write down your odometer or reset you trip meter.
- Drive your car till it's time to fill it up again.
- When it's time to fill you tank, fill it to the very top (preferd in the same station, in the same pump).
- divide the number of miles (or kilometers) you drive, by the amount of gas you filled, This is of course only true for this gas tank, fuel consumption is effected by many things, load, driver, type of miles you do (city or hoghway), etc..
3. Service your car regularly, make sure tire pressure is correct, don't drive like you are racing.

Depends on the year and make of the car. Some are 2 stage some are single stage. Toyotas usually come equipped with a standard single stage. You can buy after market single stage with dual channels for improved pressure under heavy loads....like racing. :)
I'd be looking at a partially clogged fuel filter first choice. Also check for a possible small fuel line leak. Question for you- when was last "healthy" tune up? A plugged air filter, worn spark plugs and colder weather all contribute to a "high fuel consumption"
well that's if I'm not mistaken, catalyst system efficiency THRESHOLD!!! it is "bank" when your description code explanes bank 1 that is a O 2 sensor anything says BANK is a Oxygen sensor = O 2 sensor.what is it doing shutting off when eng warms up or sputtering or nothing really out of normal behavior? these switches will loose all communication with computer or get stuck in 1 of three ranges each range behave differently! in each range the deal with these are these switches are a part of maintenance usa @ hundred thousand km they should be change for emission efficiency and fuel consumption and vehicle performance usually after 1 is changed 9 times out of 10 shortly after the next bank will produce eng light and so on!! I usually change both while I'm at it you know pay me now or pay me again later but twice as much! well hope this helps you out good luck cheers happy new year.John, Toronto,Ontario
Use a good fuel injector cleaner every 15k and change your air filter as needed. If it looks clean it is. The most you should be changing the AF is approx. 15 to 20k. Unless you live in a dust bowl or have the only diesel camry I know of. I recommend the use of nitrogen in the tires for improved tire wear and fuel economy.
Most definitly that leak is leaning out the motor so the oxy sensor thinks therse not enough fuel and tells the injectors to put more fuel in.All parts of the air box must be leak free.The air filter should be clean and the lid securely fastened.A compression test would tell you the health of the cylinders and wether theyre working efficiently.The lower the compression ratio the less effectivly the fuel is burnt.If you have around 140-150 your engine is in a reasonable condition.
