Today, after replacing several components on my new used car, I realized that the reason it wasn't getting the gas mileage it was supposed to because my coworkers take turns siphoning my gas while I work. FML

OP thought it was a faulty parts (i.e. oil filter) that was causing his poor gas milage. After replacing them and still having this issue he found out or someone filled him in on what was happening.


Blindly? They replaced some things. Maybe those things needed to be replaced anyway. When someone wonders about their gas mileage, coworkers siphoning gas isn't usually the first guess.

No but its pretty simple to see if you actually have bad gas milage.
1. fill your tank
2. drive for however many miles per gallon you should be getting on highway.
3. fill the tank back up
You'll be able to tell if something needs replacing if you're way off the estimate.
And doubtful as they only replaced the parts becuase they thought they were getting bad gas mileage.
