    If the fuel filer is plugged, you would very likely have a Check Engine Light code P0171 for a lean running engine. which would not effect your mileage, because the car is starving for fuel, not feasting on it.
    The filter is back by the right rear tire, sometimes not real easy to do.

    I would check the Long Term Fuel Trim, in your power train data. If it is negative, then you have a rich running engine which will cause poor fuel mileage.
