check up on your fuel filter? air filter?

change ur oil recently? what weight is ur oil?

etc. etc and seriously mileage can vary by sooo much just depending on how heavy your foot is. I've done 400 km a tank to 250km a tank in the same car.

spark plugs?

a huge list of things can affect the mileage

I just went and did everything I got a CAI, new exhaust, oil change, I try not to be too heavy with my foot... usually keeping the rpm's around 3k and highest I would go is 4k I was looking into after market spark plugs any suggestions? Sorry it took me so long to get back it took a while to get a response and thought no one was going to reply so never bothered checking back again.

You might wanna check air pressure of your tires and balance them (makes a small difference in gas usage)
