This may be a long shot, but it helped with my cars fuel economy (05 Elantra).
My rear brakes (disc type) wore out at 60,000 miles. This is the first car I have owned that used up the rear brakes before the front ones needed to be replaced. When I replaced the pads, I noted the parking brake was adjusted too tight.
Had to take the center console loose (six screws) and adjust the parking brake cable. It’s easy to do. If you have the right kind of wrench, you may be able to adjust the cables through the hole in the storage compartment at the rear of the console.
The nut you loosen up is against a bracket that connects the two rear parking brake cables to the front cable attached to the parking brake handle.
After loosening up the parking brakes, went up to 38 mpg from 33.
I drive 100 miles a day, with 80 being on the freeway, and 20 in town driving.
With my last tank of gas, went 500 miles before low fuel light came on (around 40 MPG, drove at 55 on the freeway all week)..
The CVVT cars hae an unfair advantage on us.I grab about 350 miles a tank and i drive about 75 miles a day 60 hwy 15 city sounds like i need to do some work to stretch my gas out.
In my case:Basic list for mpg: driver lead foot, spark plugs/wires, fuel quality, 02 sensor, tires
Yeah, my 2018 is getting about 11 miles to the gallon! With gas at $5 a gallon, I need an answer!my girl's car's got 42k miles and an auto.
lots of A/C usage due to summer heat. but after a full fill-up, it did only 118 miles when the guage is at the middle mark. are Elantra's fuel guage very accurate?
i just did the plugs, motor oil, reset computer...think the air filter was done last year.
what next....fuel filter? (where is it?) thanks.
