Hummer H3 Problems

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

The engine may develop a misfire due to worn valve seats. This fault will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Replacement of the cylinder head may be required to correct this concern.

The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.

If this continues come April I won't be able to pass inspection...PLEASE HELP

I just purchased this vehicle. Can you share what could be causing it to only be averaging 6-7 mpg?
