I could recommend a product I use on my own cars called SeaFoam. You can buy it at most autoparts stores like PepBoys and what it does is clean out alot of the carbon buildup, which improves gas milage and gets the engine running like new. Just follow the instructions on the back.

Volvo s40 1.8 gdi excessive fuel consumption


You're going to have to figure out what's causing the misfire. The car is almost 10 years old, so change the plugs to start with. If you still have a misfire, go to auto zone and have them pull the codes to find out which cylinder is the issue. Then figure out fuel or spark? Coil or injector? Was there a lean code? Check for a vacuum leak. Change the fuel filter and air filter for maintanence. The cruise control may be another issue.

High gas mileage (15- 20 l per 100km)


try changing the oil also it will cause the engine to burn more fuel with bad oil because it gets hot and evaporates it alot more

The mpg display has a fault.


you have switched the trip computer to instantaneous fuel consumption rather than average.the switch on the end of the wiper stalk.press the switch until you get back to average consumption ,i think it shows a circle with a line through it from memory
