This past year we've noticed a marked decrease in time that the batteries discharge. The result has been a lowering of MPG. Over the course of 2003, our milage has lowered approximately 10 MPG (from 60's to 50's MPG).
Is this what happens when the storage batteries begin to fail. We have 88K miles on the car. Are there other 2000 owners with similar mileage having this problem? Are there other explanations for this problem?
I appreciate any insight to this problem (sorry about the pun).
