Gas mileage is very poor.


Stop and go driving obviously uses more gas. The best thing to do is to make sure you do not have a leak. Then the next time you fill up, record the gallons and current mileage on the car. Then compare the next time you fill up by the total mileage on the car divided by the gallons just inputted. That will determine if your gas mileage is high or average.

Im a lady and need help I have a 1994 seville cadillac,my gas hand is not working what shall I do?thank you,Joan.


Take it to your mechanic and ask him. There are so many things that could happen that only a mechanic can help. if its going to cost too much to fix fill your tank and keep track of the mileage so when you go so many miles you know its time to fill up.

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003


One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

I am driving the sane distance to work no changes, of directon. why my 2005 toyota corrola is burining up more petrol than my 1998. need some advice.


No two cars will get the same gas mileage, if your 1998 was a stripped down version without many accessories and was kept well tuned up, it would get better mileage than a 2005 model that had more accessories and needed a tune up. Everytime you use the air conditioner your gas mileage is affected, and even if you open your windows it is affected.

Keeping a car well tuned and the tire pressure correct and limited use of accessories will help on your gas mileage.

My gas gauge does not work


Easy fix, fill it with gas, write down the odometer mileage, keep track of it and after 150-250 miles put gas in it. Dodges are notorious for this problem. If you are lucky you can just replace the gauge in the dash. If not, you have to drop the gas tank, empty the gas out of it, take it apart and replace the float in the tank. My suggestion, keep track of your mileage. I have done this and it just sucks to fix it.

I hope this helps!! Thanks!!!

Gas light stays on even when tank is full


the float sensor attahced to your fuel pump sounds as though it is not working properly. Usually this occurs when the car rides on E many times and becomes damaged. depending on the model it may be necessary to replaced the sensor assembly or if it is the complete unit the whole fuel pump.

Also, depending on your driving habits your car can use more gas if your are driving in traffic (stop and go). Average out your fuel mileage by filling up a few times and keeping a log of the gas consumed. Do this by reseting the trip meter when you fill up and when you fill up again divide the total mileage on your trip meter by the amount of gas you used by getting the amount of gallons it took to fill up again. ex. 360miles divided by 10gals = 36 miles per gallon.

note. make sure you check your air filter (is it clean?) and tire pressure (32psi) these can be contributing factors to poor gas mileage
