17 city and 23 highway would be the best you can get. That is if the vehicle is not loaded and is driven the speed limit. Expect less with a full load and driving over the speed limit. If your check engine light is on suspect a defective Oxygen Sensor. That is a prime suspect when the mileage suffers. If the check engine light is not on, I would suspect you may need to replace the spark plugs and wires on this vehicle especially if it has over 75,000 miles on the odometer. Make sure the tires a inflated to the correct pressure as listed on the driver's door post or in the owner's manual. Make sure to replace the Air Filter every 30,000 miles.
