Many things can affect your car's gas milage. Make sure your tires are inflated to the recomended psi. Clean your air filter. You can also add a fuel injector cleaner to your gas. If your car is still consuming alot of gas, you should change the spark plugs and possibly the fuel injectors. Any problems after this could result in faulty fuel or air sensors. Hope this helps!


Thank you, yes we bought a new air filter and it has not helped but I will try the injector cleaner and what not afterwards if its still not helping.
