ah, i thought you were only talking about it showing an inaccurate reading for the level of fuel in your tank... thats a common issue with 7thgens...

sounds like there's some other issue going on if you're only getting 20mpg... what mods do you have and what have you done to your car yourself? (ie. plugs, plus wires, air filter, DIY throttle cable tightening...)

also, you may want to post this in 7thgen issues/problems or tech stuff so more people see it and can respond.

Well if the fuel gauge is inaccurate, the dealer will replace the fuel sender under warranty. That fixed mine. For low mileage, I usually get around 20mpg too. Sometimes as low as 15 in the city. You can't really tell if something's wrong unless you try a highway run. On my long trips I've gotten as much as 38mpg with 99% highway miles at 65mph.
