Funny you ask that.  My mileage has decrease some bit too.  With a full tank 
of gas and running city and highway, I use to be able to run 400 miles on a 
tank.  Now I can't even get to 360 with/o the 'fuel pump' sound.  When I 
first got the car at 76k, the car got about 340miles on a tank.  Since then I 
have replaced the injectors and this boost up the miles alot.  

So my suggestion to you would be new injectors.  But if you haven't replace 
the injectors yet, its about time.  If the O2 is bad, this will also cause 
poor econ.  HTH
