Sounds more like a leak check under the vehicle make sure the tank, fuel lines, and fuel filter are all dry. make sure you check the entire length of the fuel line from tank to engine, it may be difficult to follow but you dont want to be driving that with gas leaking out.

### How does the fuel gauge work on a Smart Car? It's measured in 8ths and doesn't reduce slowly but by chunks of 8hrs. The fuel economy is really heavy. Could the fuel gauge be faulty?

Just fill the car's tank up and run it for 100 miles and then refill the tank to full again. Check the miles run and fuel amount added and then check the gauge position before and after the fill and calculate the Miles per gallon. This manual check will show if the fuel gauge is not reading accurately and if you are burning excessive fuel. If you are burning excessive fuel have the engine scanned as the computer may be generating some fault codes which will help point to the possible causes of the excessive fuel usage.

### How much money in gas will i spend in a 224 mile trip, at \$2.29 a gallon?

Depends on miles per gallon of vehicle. Average mpg of say 15 mpg would take 15 gallons to travel 225 miles.(15x15=225). At \$2.29 per gallon @15 gallons=\$34.35. So figure out mpg of your vehicle and do the math.

### I have a 2001 isuzu rodeo and my gas needle is broke, how much would it usually cost to get fixed, how many highway miles per gallon and city miles per gallon please?

You would need to check with a local garage for repair prices.
To find your average mileage, fill up the tank, write down the mileage, then do it again at around 200 miles. Divide the mileage traveled by the number of gallons used. I would recommend filling up after you have used about 8 or 9 gallons to prevent running out of gas. You can't go by the federal mpg numbers because everybody drives differently.

### Gas gauge stopped working 1999 vw beetle

1. Sender unit or bad ground wire

2. Just give your self (x gallons in a full tank / y miles per gallon = z at how many miles to fill it to the top again) I did this for years with an 81' rabbit.

### How many miles per one galoon

The gas tank holds 18.5 gallons and the car gets 17 - 25 miles per gallon. On the freeway you can expect around 24 mpg.
So for your trip you could go 330 miles on a tank of gas.
14 gallons x 24 mpg

### Jeep wrangler is using too much gas

I have a 4cyl 97 jeep wrangler. My fuel economy went from 75-80 miles per 1/4 tank to 55-60 miles per 1/4 tank of gas. I traced this to a bad coolant temp sensor (replace twice), and fouled O2 sensors believed caused by my self by placing too much oil on spector air filter (now wipe off excess and let dry in sun), and using carb cleaner and or gas treatment (stopped using). fuel economy went back up to 75-85 miles per 1/4 tank. (also disruption of sensor input/output signals didn't help from battery sliding into computer wiring harness, which I cured by placing a 1" spacer on rear clamp to keep battery away from computer.)

### Hi i got a focus ghia 2 litre on a 51 plate,the electronic computer, which tells you you have 20 miles left before you run out of fuel , is that acurate ?? regards chris..

That should be acurate to about a few miles, it take the average miles per gallon to find its reading, a good test would be to put a gallon of gas in the car and drive until it tells you you have 2 miles left and then go get gas, this way if you run out you will be able to put gas in, i think this would be a good way to test the system. good day.

Lost gas mileage. I would have to assume that you are not getting the require mile per gallon. For example If the car book say 32 miles per gallon. You are getting about 20 to 25 miles per gallon.
If you want to improve the your gas mileage then you have to do the required maintenance
Oil change every 3000 mile
tune up as required
Air filter
If the wiring spark plug wire is old and crack then it need to be replace.
If you park out side and the batteries is about 5 years old have it check
If you buy the car new, you will have a car book follow the maintenance routine.
If you have done all the maintenance and the gas mileage is low than recommended then take it to a shop to figure out if some thing is wrong or not preforming as it should.
