'97 Elantra - Low MPG

Discussion in 'Hyundai Elantra / Lantra' started by Mike Gottesman, May 26, 2004.

  1. I have a '97 Elantra Wagon with about 60,000 miles. I had been getting low
    gas mileage (19 to 20) for a while. I had some muffler work done at which
    time I discovered that the exhaust manifold was cracked. I had that repaired
    and assumed that was the cause of the low mpg.

    Surprisingly, the mpg has not changed. It's still around 20. Now I know
    that the EPA estimate which is usually a little high is 27/32. Any ideas
    about this from anyone would be appreciated

    What gas mileage did you get earlier on, and how are you measuring the gas mileage? Have you taken a freeway trip and checked the mileage in sustained high gear (a lot more consistent then city driving)? Did you check the air filter, tire condition and pressure?
