Compare your steady speed MPG to the speed/mpg chart just to make sure something out is of whack. I know the longer I own a car/motorcycle the more rpms I tend to use. 50 mph should net close 60 mpg.
If you've replaced your tire recently that can have a big negative on MPG.

You've got to be kidding me. Are you just a spammer kid?
No sir, just trying to help
I was starting to get irritated since I just bought the car and haven't seen anywhere near the 44mpg advertised. It's the main reason I bought the car. So far though it's a pretty decent ride and I don't understand all the hate I've seen in more than a few reviews.
Kungpaoshizi,welcome to the site.
I've seen you've replied to a lot of the fuel economy threads. I think you should start your own thread, otherwise it's going to be too messy for people to help you figure out what might be going on with your car's fuel economy.
Also, so we know what year/trim/transmission you have (and then that info will be linked from all your posts), make a garage entry: add car
Ahh forgot to add to the garage, thanks for the reminder.
That thread I linked I guess you could call my main thread on this. After reading through abunch of posts in this section it sounds like there's a few other people in the same boat. Whether or not they're related will be the big mystery.
After I got into cars when I got a miata I found out they're about as complex as computer systems in corporate environments.
I found a new respect for mechanics at that point in my life!
