I wold start with the basics, doing an oil change, new spark plugs, checking your tire pressure, cleaning your air intake filter and remove all the unneeded weight from your trunk (do not haul around the overweight girlfriend everywhere you go)
That might help your overall mpgs

Lets do the calculation together to determine your miles per gallon.
You say you put $10 in it. At about $3.50 per gallon, that means you put in about 2.8 gallons. And you got 140 miles on that, meaning you got 50 mpg (140/2.8). That is the best mileage one has ever gotten on a 323I. But even if you got half that mileage, say 25 mpg------what is the issue. You may want to check your numbers.
Putting 2.8 gallons ($10) in my car will allow it to go 85 miles. You are doing very well.

I believe what he is trying to say is " in the morning, he goes to the gas station and puts 10 bucks worth of gas, to which the trip computer goes up to 140 miles 'til empty, yet 10 miles later that same afternoon. He gets home and the trip computer went down from 140 to 20 miles until empty. "
Yet thats my take oppinion. I might be wrong
