2005 v6 with only 13mpg
This is...pretty darn bad right? Supposed to be in the 17-23 range. At around 104k miles now.
What maintenance issues should I be looking at? Would changing spark plugs have anything to do this? (pardon my ignorance) My dad gave me the vehicle a year ago and seems to think not, even though vw says to change them every 50k miles (he had done it at 60k I believe).
When I am changing the oil over at Firestone, they say "you need a fuel system cleanse" or something like that, but the manual says nothing of this.
Just wanted to gauge on here whether there was anything obvious, lest I drop the $129 diagnosis fee and they say "its all good" or worse, recommend unneeded service, per past experiences with this dealer.
