Put new plugs/wires and a coil pack if you have the money. Fill up and check mileage accordingly and you'll be pleased! When I bought my 3.0 with its tiny tires it was getting 17. Each full tank my mpgs got worse til it got to 13. I put new plugs and started getting 22

My 02 idles about 850- 950... Causes a shimmy that I'm not fond of... I'm considering something of the like as well as fuel filter replacement, perhaps a seafoam party... I'm getting the feeling as though I'm going to catch done flak over the seafoam reference... But I dig the stuff.
