Re: fuel

Could be a faulty o2 sensor or engine coolant temp sensor or thermostat problem if the last 2 is overcooling your engine from the water temp on dash you will burn more juice but test the o2 sensor as it does not always throw up an engine check light when they go and they let the car run open loop all the time and let the car run richer letting you burn more juice thats if they a prob with the sensor
