Air filter, spark plugs, timing, shitty gas, and how hard you stuff your foot into the gas pedal will determine your gas mileage

ok thanks Mindi I've only had it back from the shop 1 day from getting a new camshaft and lifters ughh but have driven it like 60-70 miles already highway and it seems like the needle is moving too fast to "E" lol and the avg mile mg on dashboard is not going up like it did before I had the work done so I was concerned maybe it needed a adjustment or something I know very little about this stuff so just thought I'd ask you guys.
