Whatever you do, DO NOT try fuel injector cleaner. I used it once on my old '94 GXE and within days it had clogged up one of my fuel injectors. I belive it was the STP stuff in the red bottle. I also remember reading a service bulletin from Nissan recommending NOT to use fuel injector cleaner on any of their engines. I dunno, you might want to find out for sure, though...

yeah i get a little better ... ~250 out of 12 gallons (not all 15.9)
but i got a complete tune-up ($200) and a complete engine rebuild cause of oil leak with new seals and shit ($500)

$700 is not the inexpensive way to fix this problem .. but i had to

Hmm. I just filled up my tank to the top and got 157 miles in a half tank of gas??? My car has 200,000 miles and no engine work has been done to my knowledge!

I've been getting much better gas milage since I moved up to a higher octane. I use 89 now instead of 87.

Yes, its more expensive but car runs better and more MPG.

And with 160,000 miles on the car it need's the better gas.

how long this been? check your alignment, air pressure too.

and FL gas sucks... I went to GA and immediately got 4MPG better mileage with their gas.

I'm Jealous, try 120 miles per tank. I even hooked up consult but was unable to find anything good to go on. It's George Bush. I have too many Republicans in my gas tank.
