Gas Milage Screwed Up!

ok I own a 2000 SEL and I've been noticing horrible fuel milage for awhile now. Anyway, I drove to Toronto from where I live. I filled it up right before I left and when I arrived in Toronto (350Km) I filled up again and in costed me $33.00CAN. I was driving really slow.Then the next day I drove straight back doing crazy speeds on the 401( I was WOT many times) and filled up when I got home and it costs $22.00CAN and gas was more expensive! I only burned half a tank! What the heck? It doesn't make any sense! Usually it burns sooo much! Anybody have any ideas? What could this be? Does anybody have horrible millage on a gen4?

Take your KM traveled divided by the amount of liters (it is liters in Canada, right?) it took to fill it and you should have your KM per liter. We go by MPG here and mine is 16 on all city driving. Highway driving will get you better MPG or KM per liter because there's less stop and go. Judge it by that more than how much it takes money wise.

Coming out of a 4 cylinder I almost cringe when I fill up; but I'm not sure if my Betsy-also is a guzzling fuel or not.
