How are your tires; do they look like they are wearing evenly, properly inflated and a good alignment? That can hurt mpg's a little bit as well. Something you can look at but i doubt it would be the main reason you are seeing such sub-par mpg's.

You need to run several tanks of gas and then see about getting a good baseline for mpgs.
The tires are basically brand new. When I first got the car they were all around 30 psi, now I have them all at 42 psi I believe (the tires say 44psi max).
