    for more info run a search on mileage or MPg, and you'll get pages of info. First thing to check (and cheapest): new air filter, clean MAF / intake, plugs and wires?? Also, check and adjust tire pressures. hope it helps.

    sorry Splorers didn't come with idoit lights until 95'. Just watch your fuel gauge and use the trip odometer. I don't know of any prebab add on for an idoit light, but with a little work, you could easily wire up a red LED or something form your tank to your dash. later
