    It has the 3.0 with automatic, seems to run just fine above 1/4 full
    fuel tank, but sputters below that. Fuel filter was recently replaced,
    lots of bottles of isopropyl alcohol too. Got 28 MPG on a recent 400
    mile excursion. Any ideas? Thanks.

    How'd you manage that? I get around 18 mixed city/hwy in my '93 3.0L. I am
    hauling around a wheelchair ramp setup at all times though.

    When I had a 94 GC with 3.3 litre, I was getting about 20 MPG city,
    and 27 MPG highway. Engine was impecably maintained, and trans had
    been rebuilt.

    City driving was unloaded, and highway was frequently full of camping
    gear to the roof. :)

    That was a great van.

    The jury is still out on my 2002 GC. I have to go through a couple of
    tanks of gas before I can compute a fair avarage MPG after the
    firmware flashes.

    do a fuel pressure test with the tank half full and then with a 1/8 tank and
    see what you get
    a 3 lb drop from spec means dropping the tank to inspect hoses and such for
    the pump
