well i recently had an oil leak fixed so idk about the oil leaking consumption now but it is a used car with alot of miles. I just figure hey the fpr must not have been changed since the egine was bought so wouldnt hurt to put one in?

Default Pulley

Im not even sure if that is the size Bill in enfield is hooking me up with the pulley and install because i lack the tools. So i was up for the deal thought it would make a nice addon with my FWI. I have this fuel pressure issue though where the pressure in the rail leaks out somewhere.... When u push the vavle in to release the pressure there is none there and i guess there is supose to be?

Ok..everyone I talked to Lux some more tonight and found out some key information as to why his mileage is so bad.

Anyone who knows the Boston/RI area has heard of 95/128 aka..the worst parking lot in the country. It'* supposedly a highway, but everyone knows if you use it, you'll be a while....a long long while and he drives it every day.

I simply and logically explain that to get mileage the car must be moving. Sorry dude..you suffer from crappy traffic syndrome.

Lux..unless you diagnose it as bad, don't throw parts at it. When you get here..we'll take a look at the car. Because clearly I'd never slap a pulley on something that isn't running right to begin with. That would only make the problem worse.
agree, dont slap performance parts when its not running right. Do this, Scan your PCM and see if it is giving you any codes. For fuel economy check O2 sensor, MAP Sensor, MAF sensor and also your Throttle Response Sensor (TPS) also check your air filter, tires pressure and also take it out of perf.shift if its an SSEI model LMAO. Normal shift always saves gas LOL and turn off the A/C, also roll up the windows for aerodynamics. LMAO. Just kidding. but do check out those items because they all do contribute to gas mileage.

Glad I could help with soda in your nose... thanks for the input on mileage..I'd suggest you recheck your calculations.. like I said before. It'* tough to get good mileage when you are sitting still.
