Are you getting any check engine lights?


How long since you replaced air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, and pcv valve? Those are the cheap basics to getting better gas mileage. You should be at least able to get 22 or so if you drive nice and smoth.

Maybe its your driving style?

There are many many many threads on gas mileage. Use the search feature.
Also it would be a HUGE help if we knew mileage of the car.
There are many things that affect gas milage, from tire air pressure, dead weight in the car, tire type and brand, winter fuel o2 sensor condition, tune up etc etc and driving style.
All need to be checked.
