Will calculate MPG.
If problem continues will check timing.

One good thing to check is your PCV valve, on most other motors this wouldnt make a huge diff mileage wise, but when mine crapped out, my mileage got stuck in the teens.

You should be happy that you are living in USA and not in Europe, here one litre petrol cost more than $1

i was getting low gas mileage on my 2.2 liter impreza OBS....about 23/24 all highway miles. i did a tune up, new timing belts, rebuilt oil pump, cam seals, crank seals, spark plugs, wires, , fuel filter, PCV valve, etc. gas mileage went up maybe 1 mpg to 24/25. this was about 2 weeks ago.
then i replaced the brake pads just a couple days ago for a trip this past weekend and got excellent gas mileage. getting close to 30 mpg on one trip. i'd say averaged a solid 28 with the a/c on at least half the time.
either it took a couple trips for the tune up to *kick in* and improve gas mileage (i doubt it) or the brakes were causing a loss. brakes have always worked great with no problems at all.

another note: i tried 93 octane ones, and i got worse milage, because subaru's don't have the high compression, where something running 93 would need the high compression to get the benifits of running on it.
