that'* because the gas gauge on the Bonnie isn't linear. It takes forever to get to half a tank then once you get close to a 1/4 it drops to E extremely quickly within a few miles. Atleast that'* how it was on our 92 SE, 93 SE, and 95 SSE.

I ususally get at least 250 miles on 3/4 tank. Usually closer to 275.

Except now that it'* cold. remote starters do nasty things to your mileage....

What'* that smell? I smell tune up. I get AT LEAST 325 miles to a tank. With me being the crazy driver I am. You guys need to do a tune up. Obviously something is wrong with your car.

1993SLE: I do need a tune up . Plugs have rust on 'em, wires are 2,000+ ohms of resistance, o2 sensor has corrosion on the connector.. hmm.. if I need a tune up this bad, think about how much your car needs one with getting significantly less fuel economy.
