Gas millage on 1999 Barbara Oldsmobile is only about 130 miles per completely full tank ! help
While tuning for the best fuel mileage a vehicle is capable of is a protracted and time intensive process of returning everything from the ground-up as far as possible to how the manufacturer would like it to be, the consumption of your car is so great it should be patently obvious where the fuel is going...
Assuming it isn't being leaked away which should be obvious and should be the first check made - getting underneath while the engine is running and checking with a good light, a good spark proof light...

1972 Oldsmobile 98 ,need to remove turn signal arm , has crusie control wire running thru it
