my gas mileage is terrible

Hey everyone, not sure if this is the right thread, but i have to ask. My mileage has been only 19 mpg for the past few weeks, and i average 200 miles a week. I need to figure out what i should i do??? If it matters, my car just turned 2200 miles yesterday (9-5-08). I have been going through a tank a week and it is killing me. So use the poll!!!!!!!

Re: my gas mileage is terrible

....yea man you won't get the best gas mileage doing 90+. Keep a steady foot on the accelerator. Try cleaning the MAF sensor with some carb cleaner that might work but i highly doubt it. If you put premium in it don't put it. If you floor it to be the first one in front of every one stop doing that because it doesn't look cool and its provoking and if a cop feels that you are doing it to race people he'll pull you over for any reason he can find. 19 is low as shit..the lowest i got in my car is 23 and that's driving hard and revving it like no tomorrow.

Re: my gas mileage is terrible

Gas milage will increase after the break in period, but Im sure you will crash it or blow it up by then doing 110 in a new car...JACKA$$
