I remember a car back in the 70's that I owned, it was a V-8 and
smoked bad and used LEADED gasoline and I never went lower than 15 MPG
But I would have expected 20+ MPG with this 2002 Taurus????
I do the maintenance, the oil/air filter changing, drive the speed
limit and barely put 300 miles on it per week. Maybe 1,500 in a month
for extra trips on weekends.
Can you imagine what this 11-13 MPG was like back a few weeks ago with
the gas in my area peaked out at $4.30 per gallon?
ALSO hilarious is those Emmision Tests we have in this area. It's
required once a year and I've never failed it, in fact the number
shows my car is in the top 1% meaning my emissions are lower than 99%
of all cars they test in a year. Couldn't be that then.
Got any ideas or could someone explain a few scenarios that would
literally cause 11-13 MPG month after month?
