Default Only getting 17 MPG on my 2005 accord hybrid?

I am supposed to be getting about 35mpg in city, yet somehow I am only getting 17. I have done no highway driving on this tank, and it says the battery is fully charged. I have only had the car for 2 weeks and I hope this isnt an expensive issue to fix. Any idea what the problem could be?

The big unknown is about the sort of driving you do. If there are a lot of short trips with a cold engine that would explain it. All cars with gas engines get about half the normal fuel economy until the engine is warmed up.

first off, it's not a tank; it's a honda. Secondly, it depends on the way you drive. don't take right off from a red light and go super fast. that kills fuel economy. if you're really concerned, take it to a mechanic. Being a 2005, the hybrid motor might not be working as well.
