I have a 1996 Thunderbirb with 3.8 L engine. It has 100,000 km. I have
replaced spark plugs, injectors puged, new gas filter (all dealer service)
in attemp to solve fuel consumption problem. I only have this car about 4
weeks and start notice that this car take too much. Does anyone has similar
problem or what do you think it is? Dealer can not offer any suggestion at
Fuel consumption history
16.5L per 100 km
15.4L per 100 km
normal and H" the needle usually just below the letter "n")
driven a Ford with 3.8L. However, it seems to accelerate smoothly and reach
80 ot 110 km/h without too much of a problem.
"N", the car can be pushed without too much effort.
For those that don't do metric, that's a car with ~62000 miles getting
about 14 mpg.
Yeah, that doesn't seem right. My 4.6L '96 bird gets about 23 mpg. I'm
going to estimate and say about 9-10L per 100 km.
