No leaks but losing gas!

Asked by Oct 30, 2012 at 04:11 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Started my car this morning and was a little
under half a tank. Fuel range indicator said
approx. 190 miles before E. Drove 3 miles
then noticed it said 84 miles before E. And I
was at 1/4 tank. Looked and there are no
leaks.

maybe it wasnt registering correctly at start up. I've seen those range readouts do wierd things. Unless you notice a reduced cruise range per tank I wouldnt worry about it. That much fuel loss would make a very strong fuel smell and a leak would be noticable, or a fire.

could be overloading fuel inection system with fuel

I just wanted to know if it was the fuel injection system. I have a 2008 chevy colbalt with the same exact issue. We bought it used about 4 months ago and it gets about 189 miles on a full tank of gas. no order or sign of leak, pressure is good....what is it?
