I'm getting terrible MPg's
 
Hey guys hows it going?

Well im here seeking advice about some fuel economy issues im having. When driving I can watch the fuel needle move. I dont drive it insanely fast or anything. I baby my cars. I had some trouble codes looked up and it needs 02 sensors. But it cant be destroying my MPG's that bad. My car does need an alternator, it stumbles when ever I turn my blower motor or headlights on. Battery lights on. My engine misses at lower speed (exhaust sounds like a tututututut (refer to my other thread about it) but I mean im getting probably 15 mpg. 25 bucks tops mine off (well almost) but I just cant seem to figure it out. My front tires need replaced, and need alighned (getting that done soon) but I mean shit it cant be affecting its performance that bad.

Any suggestions? Engine seems to idle at a low speed as well (im guessing 5-600 rmp)

Thanks, Patrick!! [headbang][:)]

Get the 02 replaces like yesterday yes they really do effect the mgp that bad. Get a tune up too while your at it and a new air filter.

Yep no problem.

The alternator can also be a contributing factor. But more than likely O2 sensors and tune (plugs, wires, air filter, oil change) up should do it.
