gas gauge on empty fuel 

The reason why most vehicles get poor gas mileage (mpg) and low fuel economy includes the following reasons:

  • You are using low quality fuel
  • Your vehicle needs a tune up
  • You allow your vehicle to idle for long periods

Also, during winter, vehicles may notice a dip in fuel economy because winter fuel has more alcohol added to it and will affect your fuel economy negatively.

To improve fuel economy:

  • Schedule an engine tune up for your vehicle
  • Schedule a throttle body service for your vehicle
  • Check your tire pressure and make sure it matches recommended manufacturer specifications
  • Have your air and fuel filters changed regularly
  • Use the proper quality gas that is recommended for your vehicle
