Because gas is expensive?

If you are getting 230 miles out of 16.5 gallons (really going to full empty) then you are getting around 14 mpg (you know your car can do this calculation for you, and you can watch things like instant fuel mileage) which is not great, as the 2.0 and 2.5 are rated for a combined 26 mpg (and the 1.5 is rated at 28/29 mpg combined), and even if only city driving 22mpg for the 2.5 and 2.0, and 24/25 for the 1.5.

It could be mechanical (tire pressures, worn spark plugs, air filter, dragging brakes, CEL on??), it could be driving style, environment (hills, wind, very short period of driving at speed).

I know that I can easily get mid teens fuel mileage when I drive aggressively, or lots of stopping and starting (even with auto stop/start).
