Default Need help! 98 gt conv.

Hey guys, just bought a 98 gt and drove it to work today and my work is around 8 to 10 miles from my house, and it took a quarter of a tank to get there! Anyone have any ideas as to what could be wrong or what I could try or look at to figure it out. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

are you sure about that? that equates to about 2.5 miles per gallon. i don't think that anything short of an 18 wheeler can get that bad

My guess is either you have a fuel leak (filler neck going into the tank) or your fuel guage isn't reading correctly. There's no way you went through that much fuel.
