Question
Hi I have a 1993 nissan maxima gxe, its a good car but recently I fill the car up with gas a couple days ago and now its on a quarter tank,  could it be the fuel filter? or something else?

Answer
Hi Jamie -

Have you figured out your gas mileage per gallon?

Have you noticed leaks, fuel smells, etc?

If you do not see visible fuel leaks, cracks in your fuel lines, etc, then ensure your car has been tuned up recently, and also ensure that your transmission is functioning properly. If it is slipping, then that will definitely rob gas mileage.

Hope this helps -
