why is my escort getting bad fuel economy
Sounds like tune up time. How old are the plugs and wires and other ignition components? Change the filters recently? Change the fluids recently? Check engine light on? Tires inflated properly?
Is the check engine light on?
no the check engine light is not on, just getting 16mpg
the car was maintained meticulouly
How is it running? I get 18 MPG on my taurus around town. Do you only do short trips with it? I like to get my cars on the highway once a week to "open it up", let the fluids run to operating temps as the car runs better.
