Drive a miles on an open road, dont use your brakes. Coast to a stop and feel your rims, they should be cool or air warm, not HOT, that means dragging brakes, check rears too for E-brake drag.

What causes high fuel consuption and what can be done to reduce fuel consuption in a RAV4

A lot of different things starting with air pressure in your tires being correct, a clean air filter, replace the fuel filter, and drive sensibly, no jack rabbit starts and try to do the speed limit. A proper tune-up can go a long way and don't drive with the check engine light on. There could be something seriously wrong with your vehicle if your check engine light is on.

What causes high full consuption and what can be done to reduce fuel consuption in a isuzu KB 220 car

You can overinflate your tires by a few psi over standard, not use AC, avoid stop and go driving and jack rabbit starts, remove unnecessary heavy objects from car, keep max speed around 55, proper oil level, no brakes dragging, anticipate stops and let off gas, etc.

Chevy Malibu 2001 with 89,000 miles idling too high during park

Back to the mechanic - sounds like either an IAC motor or TPS sensor is the problem, but also could be the throttle cable (sticking leaving the throttle not fully closed).

High consuption fuel

try unhooking the battery over nite and hook it back in morning.
that will dump the memory on the computer and it will have to relearn the way you drive.
don't try to drive to fast the first 150 miles. so don't floor it till it learns.

I have a 1999 grand prix gtp that shuts off when I'm driving it doesn't happen very often but yesterday it shut off on the highway the batt light and oil light came on right after and plus my car seems...

I'd definitley look at the fuel pump resistor first. Otherwise I'd say it's the fuel pump. But to find out before you spend too much money it may be worth your while to change the fuel filter, that will at least help whether the pump is bad or not.
