as car gets older-hows your mpg?

i don't know if its just my car...

but i only have like 39Kmiles...and my gas mileage has decreased by about 4mpg...compared to when it was new..

depends upon efficiency. do you get your oil changed regularly? got everything 'lubed up?

as a rule of thumb, when cars get older their mgp decreases because friction has taken its tole (wear). that said, keeping your car in good condition can slow this wear to a minimum.

but you only have 39k miles...you really shouldn't be noticing THAT much. IMO, i'd say it was probably oil changes, but it doesnt have to be that.
