Around 19 to 21 mpg is all you are going to get on a 1990 auto. trans. That is combined mpg city/hwy! Is it worse than that?

Not likely, need to have it scanned for codes to start with, but a Volvo tech. is who needs to do it! Not necessarily a dealer, just someone savvy in Volvo repair. They a little different!
