Default Re: horrible fuel economy

Have you done any maintenance lately? How many miles are on it? Is it a manual or auto trans? What method are you using to determine your gas mileage? If You have larger tires on it, have you done anything to recalibrate the speedometer? With a larger tire, you are actually going faster and farther than what your speedometer says. (I'm assuming the tires are not factory)

Stop and go traffic kills gas mileage no matter what you drive unless it's hybrid
