VOLKSWAGEN POLO FUEL ECONOMY PROBLEM

1999 Volkswagen Polo • 140,000 miles

I only get about nine kilometers per every litre of petrol, and the car constantly has a heavy petrol smell inside, specially after a few minutes standing in the sun. My A/C system dont work at the moment, just letting you know. Please help!

When was the last service / tune-up?

Check for stored fault codes. Check the O2 sensor. When they get old, they respond slower, which will affect fuel economy.

Standard or automatic?

Take it to a repair shop for service. Stick with one service shop so that they become familiar with your vehicle.

Dealing with someone in person is better than trying to diagnose over the internet.
