Fuel consumption is the most important factor for car owners in the process of using a car. If you find that the fuel consumption is much higher than usual, you must find the reasons from the following aspects.

1. If you find that the sliding distance of the car is obviously shorter than before, you should check whether the air pressure of the tire meets the air pressure standard. If the tires are under-inflated, the fuel consumption will also increase. If it is not the problem of air pressure, it is necessary to check the degree of wear of the tires. If the tires are severely worn, slippage will often occur and increase the fuel consumption.

2. If abnormal noise is found in the wheels during driving or starting, you should check whether the bearings and braking system are faulty in time. If the wheels turn abnormally, it will affect the speed of the vehicle and increase the fuel consumption.

3. When the temperature control switch and thermostat of the car are damaged, the fuel consumption will increase. Because the temperature control switch and thermostat are damaged, the water temperature will decrease or be too high, resulting in incorrect ignition and fuel injection signals given by the computer of the EFI vehicle, poor gasoline atomization, and fuel consumption will increase significantly.

You can check the temperature control switch and thermostat, and if necessary, go to the 4S shop for maintenance.
