    tell him to get a tune up. that usually fixes bad mileage.

    ways to improve gas mileage:
    stop reving at the cars next to you at red lights
    shift out of first every now and then

    Certainly a tune up. Is the check engine light on? Thick black suit around the tail pipe and even up onto the rear bumper?

    I had a pontiac back in high school (4 cylinder) that got 8 miles to the gallon.. There was a wire grounding out in the injector wiring, it had worn through the harness and was grounding to the head.. the injectors were on full blast no matter what.
