Some reasons for the mileage being lost can come from dirty or clogged air filter(s) which is the most common problem. Other more technical reasons would be due to timing not being correctly set, there is a problem with the emission system, the carburetor or fuel injection system is not working properly, or low tire pressure or wrong sized tire.

Another issue that can cause less mileage on a tank of gas would be wheel alignment. If the tires are toed in or out (toe is referring to if the front of the tires are turned in at each other or pointing out away from each other). Toe can be effected by pot holes and hitting curbs. You can tell if the tires are toed in by the car wanting to dart back and forth on the road and toed out by it having slower acceleration and works the engine harder to do the same amount of speed as before.
Most times it can be adjusted back to specs but on rare occasion such as a wreck or hitting a curb hard you may have to replace parts such as tie rods, tie rod ends, and any steering part that was damaged.
