There are many things that can cause high fuel consumption, simplest is a clogged air filter. Maybe you just need a thorough tune-up. Other than that, might be dirty, leaking injectors or a bad sensor. Whether you have any warning lights or not, scan for fault codes. Have this evaluated by a mechanic.
