Very bad gas mileage

I really dont know whats up with my car. $10 in a tank can barely last me half a day...i need to fill up 3 times per week, and i dont ususally go above 120 on the highway nor do i accelerate crazily fast...

Does anyone know some possible causes of this, or should I just take it to honda for a tune up and make them replace all the borken down parts.

I got the car at 135 kms and it had 168km....I think i missed a few scheduled tunes ups, but i dont know.

Any input would be of help. Thanks

Honestly I really havent checked. I know its ALOT less than what im supposed to get because a few friends of mine have eg's and their gas mileage is alot better.

Mines is auto btw...but i dont really think it would have that much of a difference.

any CEL's?
A bad o2 sensor or dirty air filter can cause bad gas milage.
When was the last time you did a tune up?
