Scan for diagnostic codes and check the ECT (engine coolant temp) sensor for proper output. Is the exhaust smoking black? Have you checked for low tire pressure?

p0128 is a big deal. It indicates that the ECT circuit is getting bad readings, so you need to have the circuit and the sensor tested, getting that fixed will go a long way towards saving on fuel.

And have the system looked over for an exhaust leak if you are smelling fumes, hearing noises or smelling exhaust.
