Ok, I need to know what to do!
I have excessive fuel consumption in my 88 EA Falcon S Pac, 3 spd auto.
I have searched the forums, found several topics on high fuel consumption, but none very specific.
I would like to know what are the main, most obvious causes of high fuel consumption with the EA, that I can check for myself without taking it to a garage. I am getting about ----100km/15 litres----, could even be nearer 16, at the most!! And thats on Caltex Vortex Gold. Its mainly town driving, but I have been using as light a foot as possible recently, trying to squeeze out as much as I can.
I found my oxy sensor was buggered, I replaced that. New dizzy cap, checked the leads, they are fine. Fairly new spark plugs, all cleaned and gapped. Air filter is clean. Car temp runs in the first "N" and sometimes "O" of NORMAL. Checked diagnostic mode, no error codes came up. Tyre pressures are fine. Temp sensor checks out fine.
What else could be causing my EA to suck so much juice?? Its costing me a bomb to keep her running!
Any suggestions gladly welcome!
