Default What's wrong with my Acura TL?

I have a 2004 Acura TL and I think something is wrong. It tells me how much MPG's I get with a full tank. I use this fuel ejection cleaner called tune up in a can and its been helping a lot. Recently I went from getting 320 Miles to a full tank to barely getting 250. What's going on... I need some help asap because its killing me to fill up my tank so often and I haven't changed any of my routine. I only use the Fuel Ejection cleaner when I get an oil change. HELP!!!

using the computers to calculate mpg is not the most accurate method. going forward, you should calculate it yourself by the # of gallans you put in and the number of miles between fill-ups. i use the trip meter to track this.

look into getting a tune-up and check your tire pressure to see if that could be a cause. it's great that you do track mileage because it can and will indicate when a problem may be occurring.

It could also be the gas. I noticed that on my 2004 TL as well.I asked the service dept one time about it and they said that depending on winter vs. summer and where you buy your gas could change that figure.

what do you actually get on a tank? the little trip computer in my car says I would get 250 per tank, but I would actually get over 300 - 330 combined highway and city.
