Some older vehicles do not have a baffle on the fuel pump, to prevent rapid changes in fuel level when turning. This may be normal for this vehicle. Fuel milage can be affected by several items like failing sensors, mechanical problems, etc. I suggest having a certified technician check your vehicle to diagnose your worsening fuel milage.
