Gas Mileage Question

Ok... I have been noticing lately my car is eating gas like nothing...

I looked at the manual and it states...

Holds 14.5 gallons and gets (12.1 miles per gallon)

Is this correct? 12 seems really really low to me

LOL wow my jeep used to get 12 mpg. But that was becasue of its gearing and ineffecient inline 6 wink Ur getting crappy gas becasue ur driving liek a normal person wink If you use lift often ur going to et crappy gas. If ur rev high to shift ur going to loose gas. So prettymuch all you can do is drive slower ot fix it smile

I think someone siphoned your tank! We did that to a guy that bought a VW, well, we added a few gallons each week for a month, then took it back out. He went to the dealer wanting to know what happoned to his 80 MPG!! rofl

I'm getting 30 - 28, but that's crusing at 80. If i could ease up on this lead foot I could do better.
