Help me please

First off, I would like to apologize for not being more involved over the past few months. My new job works me 6 days a week for 11 hours and I have college on top of that.

Anyway, after our Focus meeting at Sadlers, I began keeping track of my mileage and I am disappointed to say that my mpg is between 10 and 15. This surely cannot be right for a vehicle that is rated at 35 hwy. I know the Kona rack on top of my car causes a bit of resistance, and can affect mileage, but it shouldn't be that drastic.

What can I do to increase my mpg? I'm tired of filling up my tank every week at least once. Also, I'm not sure if I have the key to the Kona rack, and the guys at the Ford dealerships I've been to have no idea what I'm talking about when I ask them about having a key made for it. Any ideas on what to do to get it off without damaging it?
