1995 Gas Mileage (Part 3)


Vehicle Information: Year: 1995; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 72700;

I just wanted to give an update on my fuel economy problem, and how things have progressed over the last month or so. After checking everything easily accessible out, I decided to run 2 tankfull's of Chevron Techron through the fuel system in succession. The thought was that I had a carbon deposit blocking an intake valve or some sort of deposit on the injectors. Well, after the treatment the car is now back up to 18 mpg on my daily commute, and 22 mpg on the highway. Needless to say I'm pleased. Grin.I suppose we'll never know what the true culprit was, but I thought I'd give an update so that others who are down on gas mileage might benifit from my experience.
