Whats the mpg for the four banger?

Idk why but I feel like my mustang should be getting better gas mileage than it is lol new plugs and wires. Also all of the fluids have been changed... I'm getting like freaking 17mpg. The only thing I can think about is maybe the O2 sensor.

Wipe it good and blow it in and out and see you hear it moving inside . Or check if air comes out with your finger too. Ull usually tell if there is a lot of oil or leaking on the hoses

Haha well my car has 108k on it so that ain't happening until I have the money to rebuild it. Also I can't really complain about the little thing I got it for $100 running. And it doesn't have anything really wrong with it except the blinker switch in the steering column is bad. She runs like a top and the interior is almost mint.
