Gas mileage

Here is the first one i found.

The search doesn't like short words, so use advanced and use Mileage and select Relevancy.

Re: what mpg you getting on your 2.2?

I edited my last post, but your problem is that the search needs words longer than 3 letters.

Re: what mpg you getting on your 2.2?

well done adrenalin, way to teach a newb how to search

since you're having the problem, why don't you just tell us how much MPG you're getting. and what kind of "problem" are you having with your exhaust? and how about you clarify what 2.2 you have. h22 or f22. 2 very different engines with the same displacement with very different MPG.

Re: what mpg you getting on your 2.2?

yep, what he^ said. i don't think 21.1 is normal when i get around 24-25 in my 5th gen with very little spirited driving. with a lot of spirited i get 22-23. the highest speed i reach regularly is 50-55. and its only for a few miles at a time.

so you're saying you have an exhaust leak in your exhaust manifold? that wouldn't mess up your MPG that much. when was the last time you did a tune up? ever tried seafoam? definitely check your tire pressure. i started getting gas mileage barely at 20. turned out my tires were about 10psi low. air pressure makes a huge difference.

Re: what mpg you getting on your 2.2?

i think theres somethin more fundamentally wrong with the car... wen i first got the car it was gettin about 26mpg, then i had a little incident with some black ice at 70mph, luckily the spin slowed me down to about 15mph before goin side ways into the kurb so i may of knocked the alignment off, wud that cause this type of fuel reduction? (i just aint got any spare money at the mo to get the car checked out, and wot money i do have seems to be goin on petrol lol)

Alignment can change your mpg a little. Anything that is trying to stop the car from moving forward changes the mpg.
