Engine Performance problem
1997 Dodge Dakota V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 166000 miles
I recently have been getting horrible fuel mileage with my dakota. I have knew wires, plugs, cap and rotor from a year ago. I just changed my oil recently etc. It sounds like it runs fine and I notice not hesitation or lack of power. About a month ago I had my thermostat jump to 240 so I pulled over, (where we live is cold so possibly froze a little in my block) got a ride to the store for anitifreeze and came back and temp went down. Im not sure if this info in relevant but I thought maybe it could help with my situation. I had it in the shop last week and had a fuel pressure test done and it all checked out. So I'm lost as to where and what to do to this thing to better my fuel mileage. I am getting 8 in town and no better on the highway.
