I have a 2007 Nissan Versa SL hatchback.
I noticed that my gas is running out very fast. I only drove about 20 minutes in a busy city and it went down 1-2 lines on the fuel meter. Usually it will be 1/4 full after about 3 weeks. At this rate I'm looking at about 1-1.5 weeks until then.
Any idea why?
When the temp was close to 0 F I lost 10 mpg as my car seemed to burn it faster. Unless its suddenly colder its likely you got an oxygen sensor going bad or a leaking injector. The oxygen sensor should trigger a engine code or pending engine code. THe leaking injector will lead to a smell of gas, hard starting and gassy smelling oil in the engine.
This is all assuming you do not have a physical leak from under your car and you didnt get some ethanol flavored gas like e85 or so as ethanol burns more and faster as it has less energy than gas.
