Okay I need help!I just checked my mileage 8 mpg.I can't get over it.I tried out a 2002 v10 and got that.I went with a diesel because I heard so many stories about fuel mileage.This is a completely stock 96 12 valve from the air filter to the cat. and muffler with 96k miles on it and automatic transmission.This is all city driving but I thought I should get at least 13 to 16 mpg.It is winter and it has been cold here,but I plug it in at night.When I start it for the first time in the morning I'll let it idle for about 15 minutes so it'll warm up before I leave.If I don't it runs terrible for the first couple of miles.I don't floor it or play around I accelerate slowly I turn off the over drive so the converter will lock up in drive.I'm at wits end please help.
