Air filter and a fuel service. I'm thinking you have changed the air filter so have the fuel system cleaned. Try
I work as a tech in a dealership and we use BG Products. They have a fuel service kit that helps. Goodluck

What is the standard fuel use in Cadillac devill 4.6 north star means in 100m how many gallons gasoline will use?

Gas mileage depends on several factors.
Average for a 2003 model is 17 city and 27 highway.
So if you combine those numbers, you could expect an average of 22 mpg which would be 4.5 gallons in 100 miles.

Poor gas mileage on my 1993 dodge caravan

If you want fuel economy then dump this beast and buy a nice peugeot or citreon picasso diesel manual then you will get around 30 mpg around town and anything up to 70 mpg on a run ,try paying our fuel prices and this nice typical american petrol gas burner would be delegated to the classic car sunday drive out like my jag with its 4lt engine i can only afford to take it out once a month or so on a jaguar club run around ,other than that its my ford diesel manual escort with its 0 to 60 in 15 minutes but it only uses one tank of fuel a month.

Poor mpg

One thing with diesels they do not like short trips and what I mean by short trips the vehicle needs to be started idle and driven for a minimal of 40 minutes 4 engine to fully heat up to prevent excess carbon build-up and if it has a lot of miles on it you are exhaust could be getting plugged up or restricted especially if it has a a catalytic converter on it if it's plugged up with suit you will get bad fuel mileage much same thing with your air intake a dirty air filter can rob you of power and fuel efficiency same thing on the exhaust side if a diesel can't breathe then it will gobble up more fuel then it needs and diesels need to have fuel treatment / injector cleaner that is meant for diesels ran through them at least every third fill up to prevent the injectors from getting clogged which will damage fuel efficiency and help prevent burning holes in your Pistons which is true with any injector gas or diesel and from my Google search of your vehicle the 3.2 L sized engine gets about the fuel mileage that you say you're getting if it's the 2.2 it should be getting 20 two 25 City and 38 to 40 Highway

Poor Gas Mileage

its on the fire wall yes it will help some i wouldnt expect a drastic change in fuel economy because acura dosent have a replacement schedule for fuel filters like most car companies. id check your air filter and if your check engine light is on it will seriously kill your mpg. hope this helps

I usually get 30-32 mpg and now I am getting 27. Why?

Has there been any changes to your vehicle in the last few weeks that you can recall. Regular oil changes are a must. Also, check the air pressure in your tires every once in awhile. These two things are key to keeping your car running good and getting better gas mileage. Your tires will also last longer if they are at the propper PSI. Also, do you travel the same route every day or does it change. Highway driving and city driving have a big difference in the average fuel economy your vehicle is going to get.

2007 kia rondo seems to use alot of gas

I have the same issue of low gas mileage. My 2008 Kia Rondo with V6 (2.7Lt) gets 20-21 mpg in average. Even for highway mileage, it is around 21-22mpg. Very poor gas mileage. Disappointed. I hope it would improve in the future.

Poor gas mileage on 2008 Ford taurus

Are you using the correct grade of fuel.
Manufacturers claim that a car will do 28 to the gallon.
This is done under ideal conditions at a constant speed on a rolling road.
Wind, hills, overtaking and tire pressures will decrease fuel mileage.
Your car is ok. Don`t expect much more unless you want to drive at 56mph
good luck

Mileage per gallan isn't what it used to be

There are a few factors that affects fuel mileage,your vehicle is still pretty New and all emission related components should still be functioning at the peak performance. here is a check list of other items that may will affect fuel economy, from this list you will be able to determine what may be affecting yours.
  1. LOW TIRE PRESSURE or bigger tire size.
  3. CHANGE IN DRIVING HABBIT(driving faster on highway) OR MORE LOCAL STREET DRIVING or carring more loads.
  4. Brakes hanging up or not releasing completely while driving (not very usual but possible).
  5. IF you added a rear spoiler/wing/wind deflector etc.
Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA.

2001 Toyota Echo Fuel consumption

EPA mileage figures are estimates, and seldom does it have anything to do with the real world, My new car is rated at 19 city and 28 hiway, it gets 22 MPG max. The only thing you can do is make sure the pressure in the tires is correct and run the recommened oil, keep the car in good running order.
