Poor gas mileage

(1990 Volvo 740)
So I have an 1987 Volvo 740 Turbo. I get Horible gas mileage. It is an older car and also is a wagon but I got 225 miles from a full tank. which is a 13 gallon tank. Is this normal.. or could there be something wrong? I dont know much about cars so I feel pretty clueless...

Do you have a check engine light on? And how does your engine run? Does it feel like it is running at full power or does it feel sluggish?
