Passed Emissions...But Poor Gas Mileage..

I passed WA state emissions test yesterday, but I discovered that my mileage is poor on my recently purchased 1986 944T. It is running somewhere around 13 to 15 miles-per-gallon for 1/2 urban driving, 1/2 highway. I understand that it should around 20 mpg.

Can anyone help? Any ideas what what I should check to correct the problem? My idle rpm is running around 1000 - 1100 rpm. Using 245R16 for rear tire setup. Here are the test results:

THANKS in advance!!!
