Hey guys. I though it was a fuel related problem, but I've had 2 people tell me the clutch is slipping a little, and they're both pretty mechanical.

Sometimes when I'm accelerating it the rate of acceleration slows even thought the motor is still throttling normally.

The car has 70,000 miles on it, is it possible lifting up on the clutch pedal will help this issue. It's like the clutch has worn down to the point where even when the pedal is let all the way out the clutch doesn't fully engage. I'm guessing this would explain my terrible gas mileage as well.

Thanks for any input, you guys are awesome.

have you considered that your clutch itself could be wearing out

No amount of adjusting is going to fix a worn out clutch.

Try to put the car under a heavy load and give it some throttle. If rpm's go up and the car doesn't go anywhere, its probably worn out.
