I would like to know how to get better gas mileage on a car-do I need a new air filter-it is only a 4 cylinder car.


The best way to improve gas mileage is to change your driving habits. K&N filters claim they can increase mileage, but there really is not 'miracle device' that can do so. Make sure the vehicle is running well, plugs and wires are all in good shape, air and fuel filters are clean.

Stay on highways as much as possible, and drive around with a glass of water that has no lid and is filled pretty high. Attempt to drive without spilling the water. This will drastically improve economy.

What causes my nissan maxima to get low gas mileage? I was told the sensor bank one and had ti replaced no change in mileage.my gage jumps from 12 -27 miles a gallon.It drinks gas!


Driving habits...incorrect tire pressure...excessive weight in car...low oil/old oil. Many things affect mileage. My 2002 max needed a new O2 sensor. Once replaced the mileage improved slightly.

I got a 97 vision 3.5. i have bad gas mileage (about 8-10 mpg) what all can i do to help improve that?car also overheats only when idling anyone know causes for this?


When is the last time you had a tune up? Have you changed the spark plugs lately? An often overlooked item is the air cleaner. A plugged air cleaner can take 3 or 4 miles a gallon off your average. You can purchase a K&N cold air induction or a cheaper brand, this includes the cleanable air filter and chrome air intake hose, replacing the stock. This should improve your gas milage by 4 or 5 miles per gallon.

I have a dodge 2001 Dakota 3.9 and it does not get good gas mileage. i think it needs a tune up, i check the motor in the dark and notice a little spark from a spark plug wire.


i recommend to replace the spark plugs and the spark plug wires (it is always recommended to replace both at the same time) it is also a good idea to replace the air filter and fuel filter if this hasnt been done long time or if you do a lot of driving and you have done it in a while i still recommend to do so and it is a good idea at this time of the year to change the oil if it hasnt been done w/i the last 3 months or 3,000 miles which ever is first. this will fix that spark problem and improve gas mileage.

does your villager have check engine light on? If you do I suggest to buy a "Actron Scanner" you can get that cheap online. If you have the OBD code you can research more detail.
My 98 villager usually stops running when it was very cold. After I changed sparks plugs and radiator flush it doing better. How is the temperature meeter? If it is very low always, change the thermostat.

for villager, likely master cylinder leaking. Buy parts cheap on EBay - ebay motors, type in villager quest & look for parts.
