Unexpected Fuel Mileage Increase


Recommended Posts

I don't know why, but my car has been getting between 1-1.5 extra miles to the gallon in the city :D ...no new air filter either! BTW, I'm up to 19.6- 19.9 mpg which on a car with 115k is very commendable...more than the EPA average on the window sticker. I drive conservatively...I'd say that I all out floor it no more than 3-5 times a tank...but I just have to hear the engine roar B) every now and then!!! I did change the alternator a few weeks ago; would it make a difference here?...it almost has to be the cause of the higher mileage.?.?.

did you switch gas stations?

if not then maybe the new alternator is putting out more power then your old one and might be a help in performance but i never heard of that happing from a new alternator before so i cant say.

either way thats good news not bad! ;)
