Horrible gas mileage on 06 ralliart?

Hey guys. New here. The other day I bought an 06 lancer ralliart. This is my first Mitsubishi so I'm not all that familiar with them. My last car was a mk4 jetta 1.8t which I loved and was really good on gas. Now yesterday I put 20$ In the tank and this would be my first time putting gas in ( the car was on empty when I bought it ) and I did what seemed like not a lot of driving around the city, just some arrands and things. It is now the next day and the car is on empty again, now to me this does not seem normal at all. It seemed to have went down wayy to fast. I drove a total of 121 km (75 miles or so) the car was at half a tank, now empty. Is this normal for these cars? Or should I be worried? What do you guys think? Any help is appreciated. Thank you

to deplete that quickly, i'd say you have a leak...now, the fault monitoring would pick that up, so unless the check engine light is burnt out, I would imagine it should be on if that's the case.

depends on how you drive, but that being said, 20$ in Ontario isn't half a tank, but even still I think you should be getting better mileage...

have you sscanned the ECU for DTC's?

Oxygen sensor(s) that don't work will cause noticably bad gas mileage. Are you throwing a code for this?

No check engine light. Haven't checked for codes as I don't have a scanner. Gonna try and use my buddies tho. Wouldn't the check engine light be on if there was a code tho?
