Fuel system 97 taurus

Have a 97 taurus and in the past 3 week it has started burning alot of fuel. Will fill the tank and the next day will need to fill it again. Only driving about 60 miles. Car doesn’t smell like fuel so I don’t think it is leaking or dumping gas in the engine. Can you help

You sure nobody is stealing it?
Thats like 4 mpg-no way it would run burning that much

Have the fuel lines and fuel hoses checked for leakage. A fuel pressure gauge, attached to the engine, will show if the fuel pressure isn’t holding in the fuel lines.
