Can't hurt. Also do air filter, fuel filter, tranny fluid, etc. You never know how the last owner treated the car, so its always nice to flush everything and start fresh. Then you can start checking other things like O2 sensors, checking pcv system, read obd data, and confirm there is no gorilla in your trunk.

I'm not getting near the distance out of $10 now that I used to, but that's because the price of fuel keeps going up. :grin:


Dirty oil can cause a loss of fuel economy in these cars. A friend had a '95 Accent a long time ago and it did the same thing, as does my '06.  If you changed the oil but not the filter, I would suggest going ahead and replacing the filter...  It's generally advisable to change the filter every time you change oil.

I wouldn't think fuel filter is the problem here, but have you changed the air filter?
