Hello everyone, I wanted to ask and find out of why does the car burn gas so fast. I always buy high taste for my car. Any feedback back would help thanx..
I'm not sure, My engine is v6, I had 112k on it, If the O2 sensor needs to be replaced, what else does it needs thanxWhat mpg are you getting?
I am getting 22-23mpg highway mileage on a 9-5 aero driven at or around the speed limit.
I've got 160K on the clock.
I've heard, but not tested, O2 sensor replacement puts miles back into the tank.
Yes, what do I need to do and what is EGR valve. Do I need to replace the oxygen sensorIf you're getting any hesitation or weird idling issues as well, could be an EGR valve. That'll kill your gas mileage pretty fast. Did it only recently start getting worse mileage?
Based on v6's, they supposed to give u 26-27 on highway and 18-19 in city, Rite now its running between 21-23 on highway, and probably 16-17 in city, I know my car needs tune up, thats why trying found out what the issue is.before we start throwing out ideas...first tell us what mpg youre getting now!
the v6 definitely is not known for it's mpg rating, many dont see better than the high teens in town, although it can be pretty good on the highway.
remember these figures vary in real life situations, and between drivers. city mileage might assume that you have a number of roads you can just cruise, with minimal stop lights- rather than stop-and-go inner city. mileage can easily vary by 5 mpg or more between driver- even assuming they drive the same exact car.Based on v6's, they supposed to give u 26-27 on highway and 18-19 in city, Rite now its running between 21-23 on highway, and probably 16-17 in city, I know my car needs tune up, thats why trying found out what the issue is.

Has your SID warned you of a loose Gas Cap; either way a new set of 02's wouldn't be a bad idea. I have similiar issue's during the warmer motnhs. Just have to recite the Mantra: "It's a Sedan Man." :lol:To conform to the strict vehicle emissions standards that are in effect in most places today, the automotive engineers have developed the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve. This particular auto product plays an important part in keeping the pollution produced by the vehicle like Saab in an acceptable level, allowing the vehicle to pass the emissions inspection process. The EGR valve is an integral part in two vehicle systems of the Saab, the engines emission and ignition systems. It helps keep the vehicle operate at its most efficient, reducing the harmful emissions of the vehicle by increasing the efficiency of the engine, helping it burn fuel in a clean and efficient manner.
