A few other things to check: Engine coolant tempuature(make sure it is reaching normal operation temp) Runnning cooler than normal burns more gas. Check for a lazy O2 sensor. ( may need to take to a technician to check this). Check tire air pressures and for a draging brake caliper.
the dealer told me that the combustion ratio is 14.7 to 1 (air to fuel)it considered normal.

Driving habits have a lot to do with fuel consumption also. Aggresive dirveing equals high fuel use.
What percentage of ethanol does the gas you use have? Do the stations you go to switch from 'summer' to winter' blend , or are they the same year-round? JUST a thought........
NOT octane rating.......Many fuel companies now put ETHANOL in their fuels. On the east coast where I've travelled it's usually 10%. Some states where they use it primarily as a 'winter blend' , during the summer months you won't have it and you will get better fuel economy. Simply put , you need more ethanol to produce the same amount of power , than you would with just straight gas, an ethanol mix increases the volume of fuel used , thereby reducing the MPGs. Again it was just a thought , not necessarily the issue you're dealing with. I just know in my area I've routinely seen people losing 4-8 MPG when they switch to stations using a 'blend' , worst thing is , it's getting harder and harder to find stations that don't use ethanol.
