# 1Have someone recheck the gap on the spark plugs. The plug gap being too far apart and could cause this.

# 2

sometimes the service providers use wrong engine oil, it can make 5 to 10% more consumption, or even forgot to change the oil-filter, have one case in Sacramento, the filter just after service got jam and the oil circulation stopped, - nearly spoil engine...

so choose the proper service !

It can, and usually it will make it worse.

A v-8 will always get worse mileage than a v-6. If you're worried about gas mileage, don't be driving a Camaro. i have a 92 rs and a 90 rs. i get about 25 mpg
