MODELS VERY POOR FUEL MILEAGE

1997 Other Plymouth Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 144000 miles

I purchased this 1997 Plymouth Neon which runs excellent for a work car. From all the blogs and forums and online information this car should be getting at least 28 to 35 miles per gallon. I keep the tire pressure up to the required amount. I am not an aggressive driver. I checked all the tired to make sure there nothing keeping them from turning for example bad berings. I am getting 21 miles per gallon but the car has really no loss of power, just poor fuel mileage. Any clue what this could be?
