For the most part, you can count on your Toyota vehicle to deliver great gas mileage. However, even the best vehicles can start to suffer from poor gas mileage. In most instances, a chance in your gas mileage reflects a change in your driving habits. Maybe you are idling more at stoplights in town instead of driving on the highway, or maybe you are running the air conditioner more often in hotter temperatures. If your driving habits haven’t changed, it’s time to visit our Folsom Toyota service team so we can help you determine if you are using more gas for reasons such as:
- A bad air filter. Your air filter plays an important role in your gas mileage by mixing air and fuel. If your air filter becomes clogged or needs to be replaced, you’ll see a drop in gas mileage.
- Using the wrong motor oil. Trying to save money on a poor quality or wrong type of motor oil can cost you more in gas mileage than what you saved on your oil.
- Fuel injector is not working correctly. Your fuel injector is what puts fuel into the engine; if it isn’t working right or is leaking, the drop in gas mileage could be from leaking gas.
- Spark plugs need to be replaced. Misfiring spark plugs won’t combust like that are supposed to and cause you to use more gas.
