Has it recently gotten cold where you live? If so, are you starting and idling the engine to warm it up before driving?

I live in the niagara falls area ... Canada no ... still around 50 degrees.. no long idle times. i am woundering if the 4 wheel auto is stuck, as i used it a few weeks ago.

That would certainly affect mileage. Could you have filled with E85 by accident? That would definately result in those numbers! Any loss in power or severe blackening of the tail pipe? How do the spark plugs look? Are both systems firing or only one of the two plugs?

the ethonol that is put in gas today will cause your milage to drop.try a can of seafome fuel injection cleaner in a tank of gas,that should help some.
