Every time I check the MPG I get 20 to 23mpg. But I agree with Kyle, a tune up (plugs and wires, filters and fluid) is always a good idea if it's been too long.
My fuel gauge is consistent, but never accurate. It hits 3/4 by 75 mile EVERY time, and 150 by 1/2 every time. But when it hits empty I can drive it a good 100 miles before I run out, still havent run out yet so I'm assuming its somewhere around there but don't have the balls to go any further. You should be getting somewhere close to 350 miles a tank. Best thing to do is measure your MPGs next time you fill up so we get some solid data onto how bad it is actually sucking up gas.
