    lots of possibilities.

    sprak plugs, wires, coil all in good order.
    air filter
    injectors cleaned.
    engine timing.
    tires need to be in good shape along with front end alignment.

    last but not least, your particular driving habits.

    The revised figures at www.fueleconomy.gov suggest a 16 MPG rating in the city. But like Roy said, quite a few items can contribute to a lower number.
