Yup!. check the fuel pressure regulator. Make sure it is
properly tuned and the timing is properly set. Not
everyone knows how to set the timing resulting in very
retarded timing. They also have a problem with FPR failure.
The FPR was/is under recall. If it fails, it goes to full
fuel pressure. If you pull the vacuum hose from it and find
fuel, you need go no further - just replace it. If it looks
OK, check the fuel pressure. There is also a possibility
that the EGR port to the throttle body is plugged which will
drop fuel mileage. Mine runs around 14.5-15 in town and
17-17.5 on the road at 70MPH. You may also consider the
fuel you may be getting if it is an ethanol blend.. Ethanol
blends do not contain the energy of pure gasoline resulting
in higher fuel consumption. Here in the Atlanta area, the
Feds are forcing us to use a crap blend that gets poor
mileage and performance at a higher cost while not being as
effective at polution reduction as the product we were
Gee - do you think that paying all this money to Arabs who fund
terrorists is a good idea?
If we had invested in alternate sources of energy - like Brazil did with
ethanol 15 years ago - do you think we too could be paying a dollar
less a gallon for ethanol that would burn in flex fuel vehicles?
We could keep all that money here in the US instead of sending it
overseas. Means good jobs for American farmers, auto workers, ethanol
Why on Earth would you want to dig up and rape the land to get to coal?

What I want to know is how are we going to distribute all of the ethanol all
over the country? They are burning off natural gas at the wells because
the lines are full and the environuts will not stand still if they try to
build more NG lines. How in the world will they build a whole new
distribution system for ethanol? Current environmental laws will not allow
ethanol to be added at the gasoline pumping stations Imagine how the kooks
on the left will react if the President removed the restrictions that would
effect any current environmental laws LOL
At 230,000,000 vehicles in the US, for every one vehicle in Brazil there is
probably 150 in the US. Until microbe production is perfected, with current
technology even if we planted half of the county, we could not produce
nearly enough ethanol economically to meet a third of our current needs for
a motor fuel. Currently the best ethanol can do is slow our consumption

I can only assume you are not knowledgeable about current mining laws, since
you ask that question. Currently around 53% of the electricity in the US is
generated in facilities that burn coal. Around 21% in facilities using
nuclear power. That is where we should be working to catch up with the rest
of the world. Countries like Japan and France get around 90% of their
electricity from facilities using nuclear power
