Hi,
Could be all sorts of things. With consumption like that, the first thing I would rule out is a leak (when engine running). Secondly, check the coolent temp sensor, (this is not the temprature gauge sender unit) if your ECU thinks the engine is permenantly cold, it will inject significantly more fuel, but with this level of fuel use, you would certainly notice when driving. I have also heard of injectors occasionally sticking open but this is very very rare.
Without details of other symptoms, further diagnosis is difficult.

Kind Regards....Dave

Right after oil change my on-board computer display changed dramatically. Cruising range dropped from 370+ to 300 miles. MPG dropped from 20 down to 11! Lost history of previous fillups, etc. I have


Hi, I'm not very familiar with these vehicles, however changing the oil shouldn't make a negative difference to the economy. Is it possible on your vehicle that 'Sequential sport shift' or the 'Mode select transmission' buttons could have been tampered with? Certainly any transmission or performance enhancements would have a negative impact on the MPG immediately.
I can't think of any other reasons at the moment.....

Was getting 20 to 22 mpg.. now down to 14 mpg...why


could be your spark plugs... your air filter... even your fuel injectors could do that. clean the fuel system with a complete fuel system cleaner from autozone or whatever and check/ change your spark plugs. also check your air filter for clogs or too much dirt
