8 mpg! why? '96 astro
baffles everyone. no check-engine-light. no black or other smoke from exhaust. good fuel cap. no gas smell- so it doesn't seem to be leaking anywhere. starts easy, runs pretty well. doesn't over-heat. i drive like i have an egg under my gas foot -always. why is this????? i don't have money to fix the thing at some shop. my guy replaced the fuel pump for 200$ - including the new pump, so i don't complain much about the lousy fuel gauge not working. any ideas???
