FUEL MILEAGE

1997 Mercury Tracer

Engine Performance problem
1997 Mercury Tracer 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

Car has a new overhaul has less than 2000 miles but only gets 25 to 27 miles per gal. Thinking it should do better. Check engine light came on and I had it scanned. Code said possible causes were,
-faulty carbon canister
-plugged vapor line
-canister purge solenoid bad
-plugged or unhooked line between vmv and intake
Could any of these cause less fuel mileage
Thanks, Sandra
