Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
So I have an 1987 Volvo 740 Turbo. I get Horible gas mileage. It is an older car and also is a wagon but I got 225 miles from a full tank. which is a 13 gallon tank. Is this normal.. or could there be something wrong? I dont know much about cars so I feel pretty clueless...
