    Mileage Question

    I have a 91 accord with about 190K miles.
    My problem is that I get 24 MPG on the interstate and 10 MPG in the city.
    Can anyone tell me what is the problem? or what is it that I should do?

    Thanks

    How hard do you hit the gas at lights? It can also be the way you shift

    Re: Mileage Question

    I drive it very respectfully i.e. not hard at all.
    I let the engine warm up before even taking it out and check all fluids regularly.
    Its automatic

    hmm I'm not too sure. that is a big difference between highway and city. Is it an auto or manual?

    Have you done any of that recently. If not that would be a huge difference doing all of them. Also, get some of that cleaner your pour into your gas tank that will clean your fuel injectors

    You can see if your transmission is shifting weird in low gears then like if it shifts too early

    Re: Mileage Question

    because with new plugs u burn fuel more efficiently and with new oxygen sensors it allows correct ammount of oxygen to pass through meaning more fuel efficiency and correct allignment and pressure meants not running low or too high or not aligned means straighter drive and not running on low/flat tires make it hard to keep speed...does that work?

    kool, I'll get new plugs, air filter and a bottle of chevron techtron
    and I check the air pressure in the tires regularly so that is not an issue

    What plugs are you talking about? And what wiring. Is this a do it myself thing? I have always wondered this.



    EVERYONE has common sense, but its the stupid ones who dont follow it.
