Yeah, I realized that a few minutes later. It is better to calculate on a full tank, though; you get a better average.

I'd go through and get a full tune up done. Spark plugs, oil, oil filter, air filter, run a couple tanks of premium gas through it. It wont hurt it and will absorb some of the gunk in your engine. Being that you are calculating less than half what it should be i'd probably check how your measuring it.

This won't do shit. It's not cleaner-burning and it won't have any detergents that regular doesn't have.

This might do shit. Also, try putting some Sea Foam in the gas. That tends to clean out some crap in the fuel system.

Second part's a possibility, as well. OP, how are you calculating it?

Yea i will change the sparkplugs or at least check to see they are ok, and check the air filter
I read about that sea foam stuff the other day and was planning on putting some in as well
Well if im using up 2.9 gallons of gas in 78 miles, 78 divided by 2.9 gives me about 27 mpg

Thats really odd. Im not sure if it is fuel injected but thats probably part of your problem. It would help a lot to put fuel injector cleaner in there.
