I think I have a gremlin loose under my hood and it likes to eat my fuel!
CURSES! Just when I get a NICE set of mods done, two days later the mileage goes to crap.
Ok heres what's up: good mileage in town, 17-18mpg and 20 -23 MPG on the highway. I usually get at least 25mpg, usually 27mpg on the highway.
The overdrive is working well, the tranny works perfectly. The car performs fine, no hesitation whatsoever. No check engine light.
New Mobil 1 oil and a new filter. JoeKD intake and the last seafoam treatment was 1000 miles ago. Tires are Assurance TripleTred, correct pressure in all.
The air filter is new too. I have tried different fuels and a bottle of CRC Guaranteed to Pass.... all to no avail. No change at all.
The mileage was good with the mods installed but then something happened...
O2 sensors going south or could the PCM be freaking out and need a reset? The car has 53,000 miles. 8,000 miles ago the plugs were OK.
