Talking We're Baaaaaaack

so here you see the fuel log for the Avalon, you can read the details in the log entries.
The last 4 entries are for the trip (they took me from 10% below to 3% below so thats a bonus)
All are above EPA combined, but none hit the magic 30 mpg I was hoping for,
I wonder if there is something I need to do to the engine controls or hard parts? I have had this car for two years now and the only thing I have done is put in new plugs.
This vehicle has 135 K on the clock and to the best of my knowledge nothing major has ever been changed.
Being the cheap b@$$t@rd I am, I do not want to spend any money on things like O2 sensors and the like.
I did do some under-body paneling before the trip
I will post those pics in Barbs Aero Makeover soon.
now I must get ready for the old grindstone.
