98 EL, always serviced every 10,000km. i used to always get about 350km out of 55 litres of gas (from empty it takes about 55 litres till it clicks off). now i have new plugs and leads in it and im only getting about 300km to a tank and thats highway driving. petrol is the same, just s**t economy, or at least it seams that way. does it sound like i have a problem somewhere?

I reckon it all depends how well you take car of the car and how you drive too.
