Default excessive fuel use (moved)

im new to the forum, posted this in another thread but tgought it'd be better here
i just bought a 1990 4 cylinder 5 speed 4wd trooper with 146000 miles on it. and i just love this thing it runs great it's in really good shape it needs all the useual stuff like oil change tune up ect. my brother and i put about 150 miles on last saturday and noticed it was useing a lot of fuel .

i pulled it in our shop checked all the fuel lines i could find changed fuel filter. had a friend mash the gas while i laid under it thinking it was loosing gas while driveing i cannot find a leak any where.
i was wondering if anyone else has had this problem or could give me some ideas on how to fix it. it's only getting about 12-14 mpg or is this normal for these vehicles. my z71 gets better than that any help at all would be greatly appreciated. thanks wes
