i was having the same problem, and for the most part, my driving habits were to blame. i dont do driving in the "city", but i run into a lot of stop-and-go. i was probably getting about 16 mpg last week. so last weekend i took my car to the mechanic and had my filters changed, oil changed, and had the fuel injectors cleaned.
i couldnt really tell any difference in performance, but i started using premium gasoline, and i started driving more conservatively, and now i get about 24 mpg. which is quite a jump, but there is a huge difference in the way i drive now, i actually go the speed limit, and when im going 35-40 mph, i usually just cruise with the car in 5th gear
id try looking under the hood and seeing what needs to be cleaned/maintained. hope this helps
