Try driving like a grandpa for a while.

No shifts above 2500 rpm and no fast starts, just baby it I bet you'll see your MPG increase. If that doesn't fix it then its probably something else.

Also have you changed gas stations recently?

Hmm are you keeping track of your fill ups, or using the onboard computer? but thats accurate to 2± MPGs I've found on mine.

And when was the last time you changed air filter? Have you changed oil, and or filter brands?

Oh it could also be your tire pressure.

If anything you should get better MPGs with the comps

Maybe you drive like a Pony owner? Sound and all. If you think it's either, no go. My guess is rev.

I got Magnaflow axle backs too, and as you can see my fuel mileage has not suffered at all.

BTW, this app is called CarMinder
