check the vac lines running to your MAP sensor. If there is a hole or one is not hooked up it will put you in a type of "safe mode" that just throws tons of gas into the mix. We used to use it for a bootleg flamethrower back in the day laugh.gif

Its a safety feature so that people like you don't end up killing themselves or everyone around them.

I totally thought to write check your MAP sensor but I had one of those "nahh, they'll think I'm dumb" moments. Looks like it was a legit suggestion lol

New plugs, OEM wires, cap and rotor, etc.

He said 5 minutes and its on E. I have a gutted cat and it is definitly not on E after even multiple hours of getting on it. In fact, it really doesn't do that much to my mileage at all. I'm pretty sure OP has a more severe problem then gutted cat.

Has to be a leak in the fuel system if you're not exagerating too much.

hahah thanks.



is 5 minutes an exaggeration? bc if its not, u have a serious hole somewhere... could b a whole in the line post fuel pump causing ur engine to keep sending a large demand signal to ur pump and the pump pushing more fuel, most of which is spilling out

The car just has a floating device that is connected to a potentiometer. When you're on a hill or taking sharp turns the gas level changes were the floaty is.

My Corolla is pretty bad with gas readings. It fluctuates +- a quarter tank on a given trip.

Have you actually calculated your gas mileage? That would be more helpful than just that 'it goes to E fast'

This.

Just for clarity's sake:

1. Fill tank
2. Zero odometer
3. Drive around
4. Fill tank again
5. Divide odometer reading by amount of gas put in at the pump
6. ???
7. Profit!

yeah, just bc the gauge says E doesnt mean that its actually empty... my dad has a truck that always reads at about 2/3 of a tank and the odometer doesnt work so he just puts gas in it every couple of days... i would guess u more than likely have a faulty guage

When you fill up your tank, how many gallons do you end up putting in on average?
