Default Why is my gas mileage so bad?

I have a 2002 WRX with about 15000 miles. I only get about 25 MPG and I'm driving as conservatively as I can to save gas. What's with that? Is that normal?

25mpg is GOOD for a WRX.

I'm getting closer to 21-22 mpg.

Remember, it's only rated at 21city/27hwy

In my dreams I'd be getting 25mpg!!!

My WRX is at 2700 miles (2 months old), and I've been getting 21ish MPG (80% freeway, moderatel driving style), and it seems to have gone down a hair since putting on the 18" wheels.

If I get anywhere from 18 to 22mpg driving around the bay area.

Now if I actually manage to slow down a bit, I think I can get better millage..

I get 16-18mpg around town. Best was around 24mpg on a long highway trip. WRX has a little over 12000miles.
