I got this 95 Neon that I've been having this weird problem with for a while. When I;m going down the highway and I give it like half throttle it will start to lose power compaired to quarter throttle but if I put it to the floor it will acceleate fine. Also my gas mileage sucks, I've been getting like seriously 13MPG on the highway.

i have been experiencing the same prob kinda. i just noticed it in the last two days i just put in fresh oil n spark plugs. y acceleration up to 2500 is slow, then regular, my car sounds just a very tad quieter, and def gas milelage has gone down alot. not to dis anyone, but das, any suggestions??
how can i tell, any visual signs. its the stock 1994 cat, never altered.
yeah 2500 Rpm on mine is when it grows ***** as well, when I replaced my Timing belt and put it all back together it had major ***** for 3 days, now it kinda has gotten slower off the line its not the worst right now but I'm not exactly asconfident in aoff the line raceas I was when it was running so good last week.
So right now I'm wondering what causes the change in off the line power as the 2500Rpm+ range is always consistant no matter the weather.
i would have to lean towards the clogged cat. especially if its still the stock 94. other wise look into your fuel filter. the recommend changing every 8-12k miles and who the hell actually does that? most of the time any power loss on my end has been the result of some kind of clogged something.
