    Sounds like it is over fueling.

    Does the car get up to full temperature within 3-4 miles and stay at around 90 degrees? If not the thermostate has gone, causing the over fueling.

    Otherwise check the MAF is working.

    Mine averages approx 30-32 mpg... 1.8 vvt Sri.. Which I think is about the norm.... In the depths of winter this goes down to around 28 mpg...
