Poor fuel mileage

I am getting about 20 MPG with most of the time shifting at 3 ish. It don't seem to matter if i drive city or highway. I did clean the ERG valve. Any other things to check? I was thinking of pulling the plugs and checking the gap.

Re: Poor fuel mileage

20 is not bad. Maybe a little poor, but not bad. Could it be your fuel pump?
