Question about 2007 Infiniti I35

2003 Infiniti i35 mpg

Hello. I have a 2003 Infiniti i35. 26,000 miles. When i bought the car in July of 2006 a Full tank of Gas used to give me about 300 miles. However, today, for example, the needle was almost on empty but i only got 228 miles for a FULL tank of gas which ends up being about 16 mpg in the city (i used to get around 24 in the city the first month or so). What is wrong? The car is in MINT condition and i cant find anything wrong with it. There is no warranty on the car so everything i do has to come from my pocket. I've read reviews on people with the same car and the same year who are getting around 24-26 MPG. Please help. I need serious answers. Additional Details - i live in california. normal weather. no snow or anything. i actually HAD the A/C on in july and through august and sept when i got my mpg of 24ish. Now, i dont. I dont even turn the heater on. And yes, i know how to to compare things: same conditions, etc. I am driving the same exact way i was in july and august when i got a mpg of 24, but its 16. wwhat you think is going on?

There are so many things that can cause this. What you really need is access to a real scanner, not a code reader, and look at the live data. Look at fuel trim and see what it is doing. If it is taking fuel away, there is something causing an over-fueling condition. If it is adding fuel, then you are actually driving a little lean, but compensating for it by adding fuel with the accelerator, causing loss of fuel economy. Looking at the fuel trim, along with the actual data readings for the MAF, Oxygen sensor(s) and other variables you can have a better idea of what is going on under the hood. Unfortunately, these things are more and more requiring electronic monitoring for diagnostics, unlike years past when we could just about overhaul the car with a screwdriver, a couple of wrenches, a hammer and a pair of pliers. Happy motoring

Is $4500 a good price for a 2004 Infiniti i35 with 90k miles in good condition?

That would be a pretty good deal. Offer them $3800 and see what happens. They may bring it down to $4200 or $4300. Good luck !

I have a 2009 Ford Focus, I keep an eye on the little light that tells me what my average miles per gallon is. It usually stays in the 30 to 32 mgp range but yesterday I noticed that it had dropped to 28...

The most likely problem is that the gas you bought most recently was a "summer blend" designed to give you LESS MPG! That's because the companies want more profits, NOT better fuel economy, which would give those companies LESS profits instead of MORE profits!

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003

One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

I have pinging in my infiniti i35. I went to the mechanic and he cleaned the Mass Air sensor and did the fule injection on it twice and before of that I put the fuel system cleaner on the car but the tank...

Hello, it sounds like you have poor quality fuel in your tank. This is very common here in Australia, you need to use premium fuel and change your fuel supplier until you find one that fixes your problem. You need to add Octane Booster not cleaner in your tank, if you have a drain plug on your fuel tank drain in all out, if you do not than syphon out as much as you can, try not to drive it for too long with this problem as it can cause serious damage to your motor.

I have a 2003, I35 Infiniti. The gas needle all of a sudden stopped working. What could cause this and where can I take it to get it fixed without taking it to the dealership?

The sender in the fuel tank could have failed or become disconnected. Its a fairly standard fix, more or less any reputable mechanic will be able to repair/replace it for you.
