Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

The problem is high consumption of fuel. The car starts good, runs well, but the fuel consumption is about 20 liters per 100 km in the city and about 15 liters per 100 km at highway. My suppositions are: 1) Oxygen sensor(s) fail. 2) Wear of fuel injectors. 3) Leak of the tank (less probable). What else can it be? Model: Chevrolet Malibu LS V6 3.1L

Fuel injector are worn out they. Might be dribbling as a bigger engine it won't stall or flood it raises the idling making you feel it's power but consuming more fuel

Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

I have 2.4 liter Audi A6 car gasoline. The consumption now is 25 liters per 100 Km which is too much, it must be 15.4 liters per 100 km How can I solve this problem?


Have you changed the plugs, changed the air filter, etc. Many times a clogged air filter will kill the mileage. Have you had a compression test to see if it is just wore out? All sorts of things need to be checked to answer this.

Does the driving on overdrive mode cause high fuel consumption, because the transmission use the first three ratios mostly?


Driving in overdrive, say on a trip where your speeds are over 65 to 70..Actually saves gas, but using overdrive to drive around town not only uses more gas, but can cause damage to your transmission.

How many kilometer per liter for fuel consumptin


Hi, the CRV typically gets 9.5 litres per 100 Km, the gas tank on a CRV is 58L. You should be able to go about 610km on a single tank, but that is a FULL tank to EMPTY. I'd suggest filling up every 500-550km to be safe.

Whats the standard fuel consumption of mitsubishi gls sport 2o1o,engine is 4d56?I think it drinks very hih in diesel?pls reply,ty!God Bless adrie of phils


Hi,

I just got mine Paj Sport, 4D56, AT, RWD. I drove only 350 km but the consumption is pretty low. On the Highway, 2000 RPM, only 6,7 liter !!!! I guess in the mix (city and highway) it will be around 10-11 liters/100 km.

High fuel consumption


change o2 sensors every 60,000 miles and use iridium plugs they will outlast engine.
check engine light will not come on until sensors are completely shot,this also goes for your mass air flow,had same issues with 99 beetle happened at 80,000 miles,changed all three items ended up with 35mpg after getting 24mpg before fix.parts are cheap on ebay.

FUEL CONSUMPTION


The fuel consumption sounds about right for a turbo, perhaps a little high. Hwy consumption depends on how you drive. If you cruise at 100 kph, you should get around 8 L/ 100km. Round town, about 10 L / 100km.
