Engine Performance problem
1998 Saturn SC1 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 132000 miles

I have not noticed a large decrease in gas mileage but I am considering replacing the fuel filter. Since the filter is rated at 100,000 miles should I go ahead and replace it and whill I see any increase in gas mileage?

I am positive that this is the original filter to the car.

Hi there, EFI engines rely on clean fuel, if the filter is very dirty and even restricting fuel flow, this is not desirable, you may find some increase, but there are other considerations for better fuel economy, change the filter it will only help matters.
