well, lets see....I just refuled and I did 370mi on one tank, and I JUST hit the low fuel light today......

I have done 350 mi on 10 gal of gas.......I usually only get this on LONG drives at around 65-75mph. ordinarily I figure around 23-26 messing around and city use.

I once got 25 MPG, and that was totally on the interstate/highway. I now average 19-22, and it SUCKS. This tank is going especially horribly, I think it might beat my all-time low of 18 MPG.

I'm taking the car to Oil Express to have my entire fuel system cleaned out properly, fuel filter replaced, and I'll probably replace the spark plugs. This is ridiculous. Some people are getting up to 120 more miles on a tank of gas.

And for a while I was driving like my car was a baby, using no A/C. Still averaged the same.

Of course I am the only one with this problem.

Talking

I have SE wagon with an atx and 88k . The only mods are the radiator shroud and a K&N drop in. I am not totally impressed, but it's still better than my '99 Expedition w/5.4, 17mpg @ best w/ 3inch cat back and a K&N drop in. My neighbor has a '00 SE 4 door atx sony edition and she is claiming 35-38mpg.
