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

sounds like that car needs a better driver


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

dude i had a 89 hatch 4 speed it had a header and full catback and i was only getting 200 miles per tank and i didnt no what was wrong with it
 
did he install an amp or something? drilled in and put a hole in the tank


funny you say that i was puting a fuel pump in a DA one time and couldnt get the tank to come down for nothing and when best buy installed the amp they use really long self tappers and went right in to the tank

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.
