Re: Gas Problems

<< Could some please tell me what could effect my gas mileage with my 86
4kcsq? I just filled it up yesterday and now it down to 3/4 tank... I know
it is not my driving style, because I drove with the gauge reading 25-35 mpg
gallon every where....
Any advice on what might be loose or what needs to be tuned to work right
would be very help full... I am going on a 450 mile trip and I would like
to get the best gas mileage as I can...
Thanks a bunch!
Maybe a Tune-up including O2 sensor spark plugs and retiming might do the car
a little good. You could also have a fuel component leaking such as an
injector or a cold start valve. You could have a bad thermal time switch or
maybe even a coolant temperature sensor. All of these could affect the
performance of your vehicle to that extent. I am looking into the same
problem on my GL5 and my 87 4000 quattro.
87 4000 CS quattro
85 Quantum GL5
LOOKING FOR! 88-87 Volkswagen Quantum GL5 5 speed. Need not run but must
have great looking body and interior that means NO RUST! All colors are good
but would prefer not to have Tornado Red the other lighter red is Awesome
though and silver is really good!
