Fuel consumtion

Y car is going through a lot of gas lately, I found that a lot of it is going right out the driver side exhaust. I plan to reflashing the tune and making sue coil along with plugs are tight. Any more tips, suggestions, and help would be greatly appreciated...

Good god! A quarter tank in 10 miles? I'd check to see if you have an injector stuck open. Never heard of that happening on a car, but my international has had it happen. Next check your codes, is the engine in "limp" mode? O2 sensors OK?

ok.... hum mabey faulty 02 sensors do you have any after market parts that work with the computer like a chip or tuner that is telling it to suck to much gas and burning rich check the smell of exhaust to see if it smell more like gunpowder than your normal exhaust smell when you rev it my 04 did that until i changed the 02 sensor and mass air flow sensor.

Thanks for the input guys and to add, yes I have a SCT tuner I have recently replaced mass meter and front o2 sensors. The back ones (after cat) those ones are milled out...


Not sure and didn't notice to much but when the mass meter was replaced it did seem like it was going through more gas than usual, but I can understand that...
Sorry for the late reply been workin my tail off and weather is bad here in Oklahoma to mess with the care this week...
