Are you the only driver..? Different drivers realize different MPG. You might try a fuel injection cleaner...also...try running a higher octane gas. This sounds funny...but...higher octane fuels produce better running engines/produce more horsepower...effectively requiring less fuel to do the same thing.


Try to post back and let me know If I helped you solve your problem. It will help me with my rating....! Thanks

I had my 50psi fuel pump rebuilt cause of a bad mother board in pump they tested it sent it back now my circuit breaker blows when i hit the gas is my circuit breaker badd now

Unlikely the breaker is faulty, but it is possible.

Most likely the pump is consuming too much current or more current than the breaker is designed to cope with.

A fuel pump is simply a pump driven by a motor that is designed to provide a greater volume of fuel than the engine could ever need right from the initial startup to maximum load and speed. It is the fuel pressure regulator that provides the chosen fuel line pressure and fuel constantly circulates at that pressure therefore the current the pump motor consumes remains constant regardless of the engine speed or load.

Should there be a fuel line blockage, for instance, any healthy pump will be capable of generating a pressure sufficient to burst many types of fuel hose/pipe and it is only when something like that happens or an adjustable fuel pressure regulator is used that is adjusted for a greater than design pressure that the pump will work harder and consume more current.

I suggest you check the fuel line pressure and adjust or replace the regulator if it is significantly higher than specification and then measure the current being consumed by the pump if the breaker is still tripping. If the current is within limits replace the breaker and if the current is excessive you should seek guidance from the people who rebuilt it.

My 2001 Suzuki XL 7 is consumming excessive fuel 1litre for 4 km

Poor fuel consumption can be caused by a few things. One being the O2 sensor. You should also check your spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, and try to find out whens the last time the vehicle had a tune up. Check your tires and make sure they are properly inflated as underinflated tires can make the engine work harder and consume more fuel. A little preventive maintanence goes a long way. Check engine light usually means the computer has detected a problem with the emission control for your vehicle. Have that checked ASAP because the longer you drive with the light on the greater the chances of permanent damage to the ECS.
