Default Why is my 01 sl2 getting such low mpg?

I have a 2001 sl2 manual with about 174k on it. when I originally bought this car a year ago it was getting about 37 mpg. Currently as of right now after doing the math it's getting 34.6 mpg. I had a 02 sl2 automatic that was getting better than that and I had a 99 Sl2 manual with over 200k that was getting about 42 mpg. What could be causing this loss in miles per gallon? I mean the front tires on this car are kind of worn but it just passed inspection. The car has no check engine lights and for the most part runs like a clock. I don't drive it hard and do my best to keep the tachometer to 2k when I shift it. Burns about a quart and a half every 5k when I change the oil (conventional).

Is there a way to diagnose what's going on and if so is there an easy fix? any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
