Default Tune up suggestions for 1993 bonneville ssei.

Aight, this is the deal. My name is Jossue Lopez and my best buddie is named Eric. We are aspiring mechanics and we are pretty damn good at it.We arent those kind of guys that prettend that they know what thyer doin. We actually know what we are talkin about and if we dont know something, we admit to it.But, we have this problem with my car. try as we might, we cant get a quarter of a tank to last us more than 2 days. i know that u guys are telling me to do a tune up. What I want to know is, is there anything in particular that i should do to get better gas milege. Any parts I should swap. I got about 145,000 miles on the car. should I change the fuel pump? Should I swap anything else? Please help cuz its our commuter car and itz draining our bank account.

Oi Change
Fuel Filter
02 Sensor (Assuming it hasn't been recently done)
Plugs
Wires
Air Filter
Change the Supercharger oil.

I'd be happy if a 1/4 tank could last me More than 1 day.....But my exhaust is eff'd lol.

and as stated in my other post about your mpgs, make sure you are running premium fuel in it. it seems like more at the pump but your car will respond so much better

when i got my SSEi i knew that whoever used to own it was only doing regular fuel in it cause it ran like crap so after 3 tanks of premium she started really coming to life, more responsive and my mpgs improved
