My neighbor has a 2005 ford explorer that is suddenly getting 5-10 miles per gallon or less almost overnight. Any ideas what can cause this? It is not leaking gas or blowing blue smoke

This seems to be a very common problem with this vehicle. I have read many posts by people with the exact issue. No definitive answers. The only post I read with any improvement was Seafoaming the vehicle and cleaning the throttle body. Others have spent tons of money replacing every part they could think of with no improvement. Maybe it's time for a trade in..... http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=345044
