He didn't ask your opinion how he maintains his car... He is looking for help...


I would check the sparkplugs/wires as well.

Also check the tire pressures make sure they are in the correct pressures. Easy on the gas pedal and if you see a red way ahead of time make sure you let go of the gas pedal and just roll:smoking:.. Not like some people I see on the road they see a red light but they still barrel down to the light and press on their brakes really hard.:puzzled:. Also dont be like my uncle who uses his van as storage for his band equipment and uses it as a daily driver + extra weight :dead:.

my automatic 2000 1.5 gets anywhere from 18-25 in the city based on the conditions
it has nothing to do with the tune, gas mileage hasn't been that great since i've had the car, I know the automatics don't do well on gas and the 1.5s aren't as good on gas as the 1.6s manual or automatic.

I can't explain why it gets such bad gas mileage besides that the automatic on mine sucks up a lot of power. The 1.5 is an old design that isn't all that efficient compared to the newer motor designs. Try anything you want to get better gas mileage it won't help that much i've been trying for the past 5 years.

also I forgot to add that my gas mileage suffers the most with a/c on during the summer and anytime during the winter

quit driving backwards. If you go forwards (the way you face when sitting in the car) you get better gas mileage.
