Pull codes and find out whats going on in the computer.

Of course, there are other factors, such as, running the a/c will drop your mileage off the charts, etc.

By all means, phone your auto supply, ask about pulling codes. It's a crap shoot. Normally, they can and will pull codes for free, but it must be timed just right, i.e. a slow customer period and a guy that knows how to read them.
