This depends upon the car; but, generally, any out-of-tune condition or vacuum leak can cause it. jb The very most likely cause is a clogged throttle body. A Chevy dealer will fix it for under $200. This is a very typical symptom of this problem. VBdenny A common cause is a corroded EGR valve. Often you can spray some lubricant on the rod the EGR valve rides on and that will correct the problem, if not permanently at least it could tell you if that's it.

How would you determine the mpg for a car?

Miles divided by gallons of gas put in your car. I reset my odometer every time I fill up my car. That way, next time you would fill up your car, you take the miles that are on it and divide it by how many gallons of gas it takes to fill your car up.
