Way to many variables to consider:

Here's a few things you can do:

1. Is your gas cap secure? If your vehicle's gas cap does not fit snugly, you may be losing fuel.
2. Is your tire pressure correct?
3. Is your Air Filter clean?
4. Idling for any length of time wastes about a quart of gas every 15 minutes.
5. Try to keep your RPM's at or below 2000 while driving.
6. Do you carry alot of weight in your bed? 200 pounds of junk will reduce your mileage by one mile per gallon.
7. When was your last tune-up? A poorly maintained vehicle can reduce your MPG's by 15% or more.
