Why is my car burning gas so quickly?
When your car is burning an excessive amount of gas, it not only increases your spending on fuel, but is also a potential indication of expensive problems. Becoming familiar with causes that cause poor fuel economy is a great way to keep your car running as efficiently as possible, which will save you money in the long run. At Paul Campanella’s Auto and Tire Centers, the three most common reasons for fuel inefficiency include the following:
The presence of carbon, old fuel, and residue cause clogging of the fuel injector. When this debris builds up it hinders the free flow of fuel.
Having dirty spark plugs can cause bad MPG. When fuel is sprayed into the combustion chamber, but the spark does not ignite the fuel, it doesn’t combust, the fuel gets wasted, and causes bad gas mileage.
Aggressive driving, exceeding normal speed limits and excessive idling increase fuel consumption.
