15 mpg?

So the last time I filled up my truck i only got 15 mpg this was all city driving but I mean isnt that kinda low. Is that normal milage for city driving and what i should be expecting or could there maybe be something wrong.

All the fluids up to date? Spark plugs, spark plug wires, etc? Aggressive driving?

Just fill your gas tank with water. You should double your mileage then.

ya. I would: check plugs, check wires, and check all fluids. Then you can see what all needs to be done.

my last tank i got just under 15. i know why though...it's because i work at the food city that's 90 seconds from my house, so i'm cranking it a lot and driving very little. it's actually decieving, because i'll get 2 weeks out of a tank but when i add it up i'm only getting 15 mpgs.
