15.5 mpg - How can I improve this?

4767 Views 20 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  AtlanticBlue99
I recently calculated my mileage for my 2001 v6 (stock, no mods). 15.5 seems way too low.

All of my driving is local streets (school, sports, parties, etc), but it still shouldn't be that low I think?

Is this normal, or is there something I should check for? How can I improve my MPG?

ok thats the correct way
fill up til full
0 your miles
then fill up after 100-200 w/e miles aslong as its not like 5-15
then fill up and see how many gallons it take to put in then divide that by your miles

i'd do air filter, fuel filter and spark plugs and oil change
all can be done under $100 for SURE
$10 air fitler
fuel filter is $8-9
autolite copper plugs- $10 for 6
oil 5 quarts-$12-30(depending on choice)
oil filter-$3-10(depending on choice)
would be more accurate if you set the trip odo at full and when you run out of gas you do the calculations... do this several times, take an average and voila
