1991 Toyota Celica GT 2.2 from North America

My 1991 Celica GT now has 207,000 miles on it, and is still running OK except it only gets 11 miles to a gallon, and power is very weak. This car never really had much power from day one, but now it seems to be getting worse.
But after 207,000 miles, what can I say, it has been very dependable and reliable for the 17 years I've owned it.
It is a very sporty looking car that really looks fast, but it only looks that way.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had the same problem with mine and replaced the O2 sensor to fix it. Approx. $42 Also check your MAP sensor for proper resistance with a volt/ohm meter. Now I get 25-30 again. The change is obvious and immediate.

Yup, I agree, O2 sensor helps. It makes a difference.
Also try replacing your coolant temperature sensors; if those are bad, it gives a signal to your PCM, thus giving it more fuel and lowering your MPG.
Also changing the fuel filter and air filter, spark plugs, and cleaning the throttle body with a throttle body spray and a toothbrush takes care of deposits, and also pumping at Shell or other good brand gas stations.
