How does ours get so much, mine, if I'm lucky, gets about 17, and i use Cruise controll all the time, and I never take it above 2500RPMGreat White said:Sounds kinda low to me, but your mileage is very dependant on your driving style and your driving situation.
Lots of intown and traffic plus a........ahem........healthy........need for acceleration leads to low mpg.
My 2.7 gets aound 25 intown average, I would think a 3.5 shouldn't be much worse than 20 mpg. But again, with gas where it is these days, I find myself very conscious of how hard I'm hitting the loud pedal.

I used to get about 230miles to the tank and then I used the bottle injector cleaner and now I get a bit more than 300. I didn't know about the 2 step thing at the time but it sounds like a better idea than the bottle stuff. It was a 7 year old car when I got it so the guy couldn't've possibly taken great care of it if all it needed was injector cleaner.guynlidia2006 said:Look into replacing your fuel filter, check if the air filter is dirty and if it is replace it and do a fuel injection cleaning. and not the bottle you buy in the store, have the 2 step process done to it. They do it at jiffy lube and also pep boys for less money for the same service.
I am always very leary of those Jiffy Lube services. For all you know, they remove the injectors(if they do that), and clean them with some carburator cleaner. Then, they pour in a bottle of STP gas treatment. There's your two steps! :baaa:linuxglobal said:i usually get a 300 km if im lucky LOLL all city driving.
Whats this 2 step injector cleaning bit? i have a little over 50km on mine, time for injector maintenance??
