2007 Xterra with about 50K miles. I had the service engine soon light come on and the fuel gauge zero out, even after filling full with a new tank. Mechanic charged $400 to replace the fuel injector. However, I seem to getting about 100 miles fewer to the tank now. Would there be a correlation? I used to get 400 miles per tank, now I'm getting 300.


You should stop by a shop or parts store that will get a scan code for free. If you've got code p0463, which is most likely the case in this situation, you've got a problem with your fuel level sensor. As of now, there's a recall on 2006 and 2008 Xte ... 2007 Nissan Xterra Off Road

I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier it is Bi-Fuel Natural Gas. I only use regular gasoline because I do not live close to a CNG filling station. For a little car I get horrible gas mileage. I only average about 17 miles to the gallon and I mostly do highway driving. I am supposed to be getting a lot more per gallon what could be the reason why I am not? Could the CNG tank be adding a lot of weight although it is empty?


I suggest check O2 sensors and tune-up regulation, its possible that you are burning so much that you need when NG is "injected". Keep in mind that... if your vehicle is excelent point and tune-up, your consumptio in NG or fuel will must the same. ... 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe

I have a 1994 Dodge Intrepid. I used to average 660 km per tank (66 litre tank). Then my fuel pump went. After it was replaced I'm lucky now to get 550 km per tank. I know this sounds weird but the pump was changed and the effect was immediate. Anyone have an idea what's wrong, or am I just losing it? Factoid: The Intrepid is a Chrysler model in Canada. Why, I don't know.


Its possible the old pump wasnt pumping enough fuel thus saving you some gas, now the new pump is pumping at a higher rate. and using more gas ... Dodge Intrepid

I don't have a problem, my 2001 Mercury Grande Marquis runs fine and gets between 17 & 21 Miles per gallon. However, it has almost 60000 miles on it and I thought maybe it was time to change the plugs, and if so what plugs do you recomend I use. I use Mobile 1 oil, and I change the oil about every 5000 miles. I bought it new and try to keep up with the maintenance. Thanks Bernie

I have a 1992 Suzuki Sidekick with 133000 miles on it which seems to use 1 quart of coolent every 500 miles which I can not determine the cause---oil is clean, no white exaust, no leaks -it gets driven short distances and maybe @ the most occasionaly 55 mph---mostly less---I live in Costa Rica thus the reason for low speeds & short but frequent drives---it does not run hot & there is no odor of a collant leak like you would get from a heater core---as you probably know it is always warm/hot in C

Hi... I have a 2007 Toyota 4-runner. I just recently noticed that my gas mileage has signifcantly decreased. I used to get about 350 miles on a full tank of gas. This last tank I only got 290 miles. Do you happen to have any ideas on what could possibly be wrong?


Wow, where do we start. So approx 4 gals of gas difference. When was the last time you checked you milage for a whole tank. Probably nothing changed with the truck, but could be anything from tire inflation. low pressure gets worse gas milage, weight ... 2007 Toyota 4Runner

When my fuel runs low, approximately 1/4 tank, my car acts as if it's out of gas and dies. I originally thought broken gauge; obvious, right? However, when I filled it up; it didn't take a full tank. Sometimes I'm able to put in 12 gallons; while other times it 'runs out' after only 9 gallons. Either way, it's a 15 gallon tank. I used to be able to get 400 miles out of a fill-up, easy. Now, I find myself filling-up every 240; to avoid being stranded. I've checked for bulges in the tank,


Funny that you mention ' Dark Matter ' -- there is a possibility that you might have water contamination in the tank (?), you can try and get some gas additives that remove water from the fuel. also, there is the possibility that fuel pick up line ... 1999 Mercury Mystique
