I just recently purchased a 2007 Lexus IS250, the MPG sounds great at first. But not until I start driving it for a week. Just this past friday night, I filled up the gas tank from empty to full, by Sunday night the tank went down to the middle. I probably only drove about 60miles max. How come the gas was so bad while the MPG review was great?
