Is this a new problem? If so, I'd check/replace the catalytic converter. They clog if bad gas gets into them. Performance is usually affected. If the car has alot of mileage, replace all the oxygen sensors...they affect fuel mix. Change your oil to a 5-20 oil. Change your air filter. Change your plugs if more than 70K miles. Check tire pressure (Mr. Obama is right!) Check wheel alignment by looking at tire wear. Repair any loose front end parts. Check brakes for excessive drag...does the vehicle stop straight???? Use Techron additive to clean fuel injectors following instructions. Finally, do you use your brakes alot? Fast starts? On/off the gas alot? Drive smoothly!

Make sure the air filter is clean,make sure the oxygen sensor is ok but would have to suspect its carboned up due to vehicle age ,if not working properly it tells the engine to run richer than normal.Also make sure the plugs and spark plug leads are in good condition.It wouldnt hurt to put a bottle of injector cleaner in the fuel tank next service as dirty injectors will also add to fuel use.A few small things to do or check but worth it by the sound it.

My 4 litre engine (owner type jeep) consumes about 14 or 15 kilometers per liter of gas. is it ok ? Thnx


I edited your question for readability. As long as it is gas and not oil, it is about right. A tune up service could probably improve it a little.

Does the driving on overdrive mode cause high fuel consumption, because the transmission use the first three ratios mostly?


Driving in overdrive, say on a trip where your speeds are over 65 to 70..Actually saves gas, but using overdrive to drive around town not only uses more gas, but can cause damage to your transmission.

Hello,i bought a subaru outback 2002 from 3 months.and it's consuming more gas than normal.(130km/20 litre) could you please tell me what i have to change? and what is the normal consumption for this...


REPLACE AIR FILTER.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS,CHECK TIRE PRESSURE.LOW TIRE PRESSURE WILL CAUSE LOT OF FUEL CONSUMPTION.CITY DRIVING WILL BURN LOT MORE GAS,STOPPING VECHICLE THEN GOING WILL CAUSE MORE GAS BURNING, YOU NEED POWER AND FUEL TO GET VECHICLE IN MOTION,BY IT BEING HOT WEATHER, USING AIR CONDITIONING TO KEEP COOL INSIDE WILL CAUSE MORE FUEL CONSUMPTION.

My 2001 kia rio 1.3l consumes so much gas at about 9 kilometers per liter. I believe they can go upto 14-15 kph per liter. What should i do to minimize gas consumption?


You can over-inflate your tires by about 8%, use a K&N air filter, drive 15 kph slower on the highway, accelerate slowly and never accelerate uphill, draft behind larger vehicles, regular maintenance (oil changes, spark plugs, wires, filters), use a fuel system cleaner every oil change. These can increase your fuel economy drastically, but if you are still noticing poor fuel economy you should have the car checked by a mechanic for what might be causing the high fuel consumption.

i hope this helps
