    Mileage Problem....

    I'm a noob. And i didn't do a search so pardon me if this has already been posted, but what do you guys get mileage(sp?) wise on a full tank of gas?? I've been getting about 230-250. That seems really low. My brother's S-10 (pick-up) is getting like 300(ish). Any suggestions to a problem? (I'm still under Warranty so no problem there.) But any ideas? or does my brother just get insanly(sp?) good gas mileage??

    Thanks for your help...
