1. Never trust what the computer reports for MPG or average MPG. Those are arbitrary numbers and can easily be skewed if you tend to idle a lot or drive mostly/all city.
2. Dragging brakes and low air pressure are the biggest reasons for lower than expected gas mileage.
3. Driving habits are next on the list, be honest with yourself. I can get amazing mileage in my 04 V6, but even driving spirited for 15 minutes will consume a tremendous amount of gas for the miles traveled.
