Hi

I had my car diagnosed a few months ago and was told the fuel pump was going. I have noticed lately that gas milage is bad. Is that an issue with a fuel pump?
Do you
have the same problem?

You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail, if it's leaking the engine will draw the fuel in thru the vacuum line, making the engine get bad mileage. If your fuel pump was going bad it would have gone by now.
