Make sure you are using 5W30 oil. I switched to 10W30 oil and gas mileage droped to below 20. I went back to 5W30 per owners book and mileage went back up. It could also be bad gas with water in it. I had the same problem and it turned out to be a bad temperature sensor which caused the vehicle to run rich. Gas mileage improved after the temperature sensor was replaced. How is your heater working? Not so hot? May need to replace the engine coolant thermostat.

Your car should get 47 MPG but it is getting only 32 mpg runs great and has low miles What could be the problem?

The biggest problem is in believing the promises of the auto manufacturer. They probably got that mileage once, under ideal circumstances and feel that they can reproduce the condition if they get called into court. BTW, I get 31 with my Saturn. Meaning that I actually GET that mileage on a trip... it's not something that someone promised.

My car should get 27 MPG but it is getting only 16 mpg runs great and has low miles. What could be the problem?

Gas mileage ratings are way optimistic. Typically, you should expect average gas mileage to be close to the "city" rating posted by the EPA. These tests are so off that the means of testing is currently being completely revamped. Mileage also depends alot on how you drive, and where. For more ideas on getting good gas mileage, see this free article in related links. Your O2 sensor(s) might be defective. These are sensors that measure the oxygen in the car's exhaust, and help the computer determine how much gas to use. When the sensors go bad, the car will use too much gas.

In most cases, you will find that anger is not the answer.
