Gas and Grounding

I have a 95, 2.4, auto tranny, with 202361 miles. I cleaned all of the grounding points, ( the ones i could find), and installed a grounding kit, the car idles better, lights are brighter, the problem is gas milage went from 21 to 18 mpg, the only code i have is the knock sensor, any one with any ideas ??

perhaps your riding the gas peddle more? have you been doing more city/stop & go driving lately?

add some Seafoam to your gas tank. 1 full bottle right before you fill up. might do some justice on those high mileage injectors.


I just picked up some plugs, cap & rotor. 4 day weekend, time for a tune up, suspension check & clean, wash & some engine bay detailing

I have Jay's grounding kit to install, and his red spark plug wires. just need a red filter to finish it off.
