Bad Gas Mileage: Bad Gas Pump

Car owners know and understand that fuel is an important component of the functionality of their car, but sometimes they overlook the fuel system itself. Below are two signs that your car’s fuel system may need to be serviced:

  • Gas Mileage- If you notice that you are not getting the same amount of fuel mileage you have in the past leading you to have to fill up your gas tank more often, this is an indication that your fuel system needs to be serviced. Because the fuel system is not functioning properly it is allowing too much fuel into the engine which is why you are not getting the right fuel mileage.
  • Surging- If you notice that all of a sudden your car increases speed for no reason and causes it to surge forward, this may be an indication that your fuel system needs to be serviced. This sudden surge is due to the fuel pump motor not properly regulating the amount of fuel that is reaching the engine.
