JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: It does seem like i have been putting alot of gas in it. But it starts normal

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

This maybe the fact this is a CVT transaxle. There are no gears. This trans works like a golf cart not like other models that actually change gears 1-2-3-4-5-6 for example. This may be just something you're not used to and that is causing confusion. I recommend you drive another CVT trans vehicle pior to jumping to conclusions that yours is not working correct.

  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris
