HIGH GAS CONSUMPTION

2002 Toyota Corolla

Hi,

I own a Corolla 2002 CE (automatic) trans with 63k miles and I get very high gas consumption 26.72 mpg on highway and 21.5 - 21.9 mpg within the city. It doesn't seem that is burning oil.

There is no sensor coming up on board. Does this mean that there are no error codes?

I have friends with similar cars and they get 26-29 mpg in the city. I verified the tire pressure and it fine 31.5 psi on all four wheels from 30 psi on factory manual.

This consumption is like a 25-31% increase so it is pretty obvious. My 1990 old Ford Escort had better milleage. Than this 2002 Corolla?

Please let me know if you can think on anything.

Thank you,
