bought one about three weeks ago and it wasn't a bad deal at all. van has 23k miles so it's fairly new (2004). the only thing that really pisses me off is the gas consumption. i swear it's around 12mpg. is this normal? the digital reading says 17 mpg, but i know that's bullshit. is there a way to improve the gas mileage on it? someone at work said i can have the chip reflash and supposedly help the mileage. help!

when you get to a long downhill put in in N and kill the motor, you can do this when youre approaching a light that you know is red too this is great especially when youre in traffic moving downhill

Those cars don't get the most spectacular gas mileage to begin with. But maybe there is a computer reflash from the factory for the engine management. Check with the service advisor at your local dealership. Otherwise, make sure the car is in good tune... i.e. has a clean air filter, good plugs and wires, good fuel filter, and check that the tires are aired up to the proper pressure. I looked for Freestar TSB's and recalls, and nothing stands out for mileage.

when you are in a rolling or non moving situation put the car in neutral and kill the motor
