Question type: General

some videos about fuel economy say most modern cars cut off fuel from
injectors when foot is lifted from the throttle pedal... does this apply to

a certain RPM range?

It can happen with any car, I would first check to see what you fuel pressure is, you may have a bad fuel pump or clogged fuel filter. The you may want to check your injectors they may be clogged, try a good fuel injector cleaner, it will take a few bottles.

maybe I didn't clarify my question. I wasn't referring to a problem, I was asking about a fuel economy feature in some cars, let's say I'm driving at 50MPH and lifted my foot completely off the pedal (in a Corolla 2006). will fuel injectors still inject fuel to the engine? or it's only in more recent cars (newer thank 2006)
