    Poor fuel mileage can be caused by a number of issues the most popular being a lead foot. besides being a speed demon you may be having issues with any number of engine systems. having a basic tuneup and oil change usually fixes these sudden drops in efficiency and if not seek the help of a professional mechanic to look a little deeper into your situation. It may just be something simple and repairing it now will save your hard earned money for something besides more gas.
