We need a lil history. May need a tune up, fuel filter, muffler always help fuel mileage, seafoam the intake and (if fuel injected) pull and clean the throttle body. a day of TLC.

I read an ad several years ago that if the muffler is replaced every 70K miles it helps to maintain fuel mileage. I do it on all our vehicles...seems to work.
