Couple of things to improve mileage; Fresh tune up - all fluids, filters, plugs, wires ESPECIALLY fuel filter. Run a good fuel system treatment through it (STP, Gumout..) Check tire pressures - specs on drivers door sticker. One last thing AVOID cheap gas.

Audi A4 Quatro 2001 2.8 L, V6 using 14 gallons every 200 miles does it sound like somthing is wrong with that car?


Your vehicle is rated at 16mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Your vehicle works out to 14.28 mpg. It depends if your driving in the city or on the highway. In the city, this would be acceptable, on the highway this would be very poor though. Also, it could depend on the actual mileage of your vehicle, as a engine wears out, often the car loses a small amoubt of efficiency, which would in turn lose a few mpg's. A few things you could do to improve your mpg would be to change your spark plugs to E3 type from made by Bosch, they give me at least an extra 3 mpg on my Honda Accord. Also make sure you have a clean air filter and a new fuel filter, all of these will pay for themselves at the pump after a short amoubnt of time. Happy Motoring! :)

Ihave a C2500/ext cab long bed,GVR8600LBS w/7.4 vortec 4L80E and 4.10 gears.Iget 9 MPG Iwould like to get better gas mileage and more performance.[where do i start].


I have the same engine. I installed a banks powerpack on it and now I get about 14 on the highway and about 11 city. First thing is a tune up, plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter, and that sorta stuff. I gutted my intake to let the engine breath better. The banks system opened up the exhaust quite a bit and it has alot more power and get better mileage. A chip can add some fuel economy as well. Any more than simple stuff like that, you'll start getting into serious money. My banks powerpack was $1800 and got me about 2mpg city and about 3 mpg highway improvement. Not much better on fuel but it did get alot more power which means I can be lighter on the gas pedal.

I have pt cruiser 2.4 manual. Why am i only getting 25 mpg. 31.000 miles on clock


The government fuel economy specs for your year PT Cruiser are between 24 and 26 mpg highway, depending on what transmission you have (auto, 4spd standard, 5 spd standard), so you are getting what you should. Unfortunately, the PT Cruiser can't do any better than that. It does seem that a car that size would do better, but Chrysler needs to improve gas consumption on all it's vehicles, that is one reason they are in such trouble now.

I have a pt cruiser . the engine light turned on. when I took it for diagnostics it shows the code P1193 whidh indicates the EGR valve needs replacement. I took it off and cleaned it good. I reinstalled it...


Yes, you have to replce the valve and yes, your gas milage will improve because it is part of the awesome emissions system....all that comes into play but, seriously, replace the valve. I know....they aren't cheap!!!
