Losing gas?
Ok, last saturday i cleaned the maf sensor, but i don't know if i did it right. I used some q-tips and a electronic cleaner, so i sprayed the q-tips, and then gently cleaned the temp. thing, also i cleaned the little sensors with another q-tips and the contacts i just sprayed directly to them as the guide says. So, i did not noticfe any difference in starting the car or something else.

What i have been noticing is that, before I did that, I fill the gas tank every week, and it last a hole week, but this time, I filled the gas tank last friday, and today i already have half of the tank, and i drove likely same distance as before. I don't know if cleaning the maf has something to do with this, or is just me.

Can anyone help me out here?
