I, my sorento with 47,000 miles is gettig very poor gas mileage, (much worst than when it was newer ). since I live in a very dusty area, I suspect changing the fuel filter (s), may be a good idea. Does anybody know how ?

    I would replace the air filter first, then make sure there aren't any faults in the emissions system that may be causing the low fuel efficiency. While a plugged fuel filter will cause problems, I doubt this is what is causing your poor mileage.

    Are you experiencing any driveability issues or is the check engine light on?
