I always did get low fuel mileage, about 14 mpg. But recently it has dropped to about 12.9. It's been 30,000 miles since last plug change. Should I change to these Iridium or Platinum plugs or should I stick with the Oem plugs? Also, is synthetic oil worth the extra cost? Should my plug wires be changed. They are still the original. Any advice or other suggestions to improve fuel mileage would be appreciated.

You should stay with OEM if you wanna get better mileage you can also get a k&N cold air intake and a power programer they are not the cheapest but they work I would start with changing the plugs make sure they are gaped right and get a K&N cold air intake and see what that does for you.I think you will be happy with it get better mileage and a little more power. Then look in to like a super chips power programer.
