    How about some more information.
    What MPG you're getting now, what you were used too, etc. Any recent information that might be informative, recent maintenance that's been done, needs to be done, accidents, ex gfs tampering w/ the car, etc?

    I'm averaging 22 mpg in my 2009 WRX.
    Driving style/habits can increase/decrease your MPG by like 50%

    There might not be a problem. Post up your current mpg, location and driving habits and we'll go from there.

    Your low on fairy dust.....there really needs to be a sticky on how to ask a technical question. List mileage on motor,gas mileage you think your getting,mods and what maintenance you have done.Details are key.

    Im averaging 24.5 over the last 500 miles. Cruising on the freeway at 70 gets a good 27 or so. Around town it only gets 17 -18.

    Do you live in a cold climate? If so, do you ever smell gas in your cab?

    Your vehicle is an extension of your skill as a driver, not a substitute for it.

    Write your congressperson if you think your millage is too low.

    (Pronunciation: \ˈmi-lij\ noun : a rate of taxation expressed in mills per dollar)
