    depends on the make model and how you drive, yet, it sounds like a problem... get a full tune-up, plugs, cap, rotor, wires, and all filters... then fill up and at next fill up check milage vs ammount of fill up in gals/ = miles per gallon, then check against dealer specs on fuel consumption ratings...

    How many miles does it have? Is it regularly maintained? Is there any warning light on, like Check Engine?
    What is the fuel consumption?

    Use better gas ... Shell premium is good. Get what you pay for.
